About the Programme
M.Tech. (Biotech) Genetic Engineering is a two-year postgraduate programme that deals with the study of direct manipulation of an organism's genes using biotechnological techniques. The programme draws focus on topics like molecular genetics, immuno-biology, recombinant DNA technology, pharmacogenomics, stem cell technology and others.
Through this programme, students gain knowledge about finding newer and better methodologies for the betterment of the human race at large. Research, agriculture, industrial biotechnology and medicine are some of the fields that use Genetic engineering techniques.
The post-graduate programme incorporates a balance of both theory and practical sessions to give students an excellent head start on the career ladder. Upon completion, students can either pursue doctoral studies in the same discipline or establish a career in the research field.
