About the Programme

M. Tech (Biotech) Animal Biotechnology is a two-year post-graduate programme that combines both biological sciences and engineering with relevant lab sessions to offer students in-depth knowledge of the subject. The purpose of the proposed programme is to make the aspirants learn biotechnology-oriented basic and applied research programmes for improving animal productivity.

The programme intends to help the students develop innovative dairy processes for producing superior quality, safe and wholesome dairy products. Under this programme, students will also learn the animal reproductive processes to develop methods for improved animal health and regulated production. In addition, they will be exposed to monitor animal nutritional plans and feed combinations.

Upon successful completion of the programme, students can pursue higher studies like PhD in Animal Biotechnology. They can also opt for UGC-NET or apply for jobs in Government Research Centres, Private Institutions or NGOs.

This course is for individuals who...

have an inquisitive mind and will-power to gain an exceptional amount of knowledge. It is for candidates who are compassionate towards animals.

Students who are looking for...

pursuing a career in Biotechnology frontline areas of Animal Cell and Biotechnology must opt for this programme.

II. Syllabus for the Courses:

BTY601 (Analytical Instruments for Biotechnology):

To develop understanding of the principles instrumentation operation and applications of different analytical separation and diagnostic techniques used in the fields of Biochemistry Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.

BTY602 (Enzyme Technology):

his course covers  fundamentals to applications necessary for the useful exploitation of enzymes both as tools for the enzymatic analyses and as biocatalysts in the biotransformations on the unique structural-functional properties of enzymes and its industrial and research utilization.

BTY603 (Applied Genetic Engineering):

To develop understanding of the principleS instrumentation operation and applications of different analytical separation and diagnostic techniques used in the fields of Biochemistry Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.

BTY604 (Advances in Bioprocess Engineering):

The course concentrates on bioprocess engineering and bioreactor operation. A considerable part is devoted to the growth analysis using process analytical technology and the evaluation of process data in connection to the generally used cultivation principles.

BTY605 (Molecular Cell Biology):

In this course students will learn about the structure/function relationships of proteins and nucleic acids through to the molecular mechanisms behind immunology genetic engineering and cancer. It is ideal for students who have an interest in studying biological systems at the molecular and cellular levels encompassing areas that are at the forefront of science and technology today.
