About the Programme

M. Tech (Biotech) Plant Biotechnology is a two-year post-graduate programme streamlined to provide information about the biotechnology methods in plants. The programme revolves around equipping students with a deep understanding of all the types of biotechnology processes, including both classical and modern methods. It trains students in detecting and mapping genes, discovering their functions, breed them, and transfer them for developing specific traits into plants where they are needed.

This master's programme is research-based and thus, demands for extensive lab work. The programme curriculum is designed in a way that it encompasses a perfect balance of both theoretical and practical sessions for students to practice their class-learning. Post completion of the programme, students can find various career avenues to advance their success in the field of Plant Biotechnology.

Program Educational Objectives (PEO)

  • PEO1: Post Graduates will be able to integrate the biological sciences with engineering principles for the study of biological systems and medical health related problems.
  • PEO2: Post Graduates will demonstrate the applications of bioengineering principles through development of industrial designs and processes that are of societal and industrial importance.
  • PEO3: Post Graduates will update their knowledge and skill set with recent discoveries   through selfimprovement, research experience   and continuous learning to create engineering solutions for   society and environment.
  • PEO4: Post Graduates will develop communication skills and demonstrate independent thinking, analytical and problem solving skills, selfmanagement and function effectively in teamoriented and openended activities in an industrial or academic environment.
  • PEO5: Post Graduates will develop leadership skills at levels appropriate to their experience and perform ethically and professionally in business, academia, industry and society.

Program Outcomes (PO’s)

  • PO1: Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of engineering fundamentals, biological and physical sciences to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • PO2: Problem analysis: Identify and analyze complex engineering problems, formulate research solutions and reach substantiated conclusions using principles of basic and applied sciences and related technologies.
  • PO3: Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • PO4: Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use researchbased knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • PO5: Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and bioinformatics tools including prediction and modelling to study complex biological systems with an understanding of the limitations.
  • PO6: The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • PO7: Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • PO8: Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • PO9: Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • PO10: Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • PO11: Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • PO12: Lifelong learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broadest context of technological change.
