The three-year undergraduate (B.Sc.) programme in Biotechnology launched in 2014, marking the department’s establishment. Biotechnology, by definition, is technology based on biology. It uses cellular and biomolecular processes to create products and technologies that enhance both our quality of life and the health of our planet.
Our lives now revolve around Biotechnology, which has enormous promise moving forward. The department is in its eighth successful year of academic delivery with upgrades and successes, realising the need of the hour. All of our efforts have paid off, as many of our alumni excel in their fields both in India and overseas.
There are currently 8 employees working in the department. The department’s teaching approaches are intended to promote the emergence of analytical skills that lead to creativity and innovation. The department worked diligently to offer all students a nurturing environment so that they can develop into the strongest human resources who would contribute to both the community and themselves. For their inclusion in interdisciplinary research projects at the University of Mumbai’s Avishkar research festival, students are supported and motivated.
