WHAT IS INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY ?

Industrial Biotechnology is a function of applied Biotechnology. The discipline studies the methods of using Biotechnology for producing and processing materials, bioenergy, chemicals and also pharmaceuticals products. Industrial Biotechnologists find alternatives to preserve natural resources through alternatives and sustainable form of development. BE or B.Tech in Industrial Biotechnology is a four-year program. By doing this programme, students learn to use micro-organisms and other enzymes for manufacturing products. Industrial bio-technologists come up with ideas for manufacturing products using less energy, reducing waste and still ensuring higher yields at reasonable pricing. One can pursue M.Tech in IndustrialBiotechnology after successful completion of BE/B.Tech.

SCOPE OF INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY

  • Industrial biotechnology engineers can seek employment in chemical and textile industries, agricultural sectors, pharmaceutical firms and manufacturing industries.
  • Students with just an undergraduate or master's degree can only work as research assistants or at best as lab managers.
  • They usually find jobs in the research labs of universities and research institutions. Some even join the R&D section of biotech industries.

Opportunities available for graduates/post-graduates are as follows:

Research scientists

Quality control officers

Organic chemists

Lecturers
