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.

This course is for individuals who...

wish to research and discover new possibilities in the field of Animal Biotechnology. It is for candidates with an analytical mindset who can obtain valued solutions for biotechnological problems.

Students who are looking for...

employing a set of methods and tools to improve plants yield and quality are an ideal fit for the programme.
