The B.Sc. Biotechnology is a part of Applied Biology, which simply stated, is the combination of biology with technology so as to alter cells for manipulation. The course familiarizes candidates with the usage of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and related fields that require bio-products. Biotechnology draws upon the sciences of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, computers and information technology that help in preparing scientific breakthroughs.
Typically, the course aims to impart to eligible candidates, advanced lessons in biological process meant for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of microorganisms for the production of antibiotics, hormones, etc. which are used in production of medicines and other such products
The Biotechnology course at ARKA JAIN University is designed to equip the students with all the tools and techniques, in theory, and practical sessions of modern biology for application in Industry and agriculture. The highlight of the course is that, in addition to the formal classroom teaching, well-planned lab sessions and interactive tutorials, exposure to all experimental tools used in the modern technology industry and research is provided through a carefully designed curriculum.
Aspiring candidates having a scientific aptitude and keen interest in biological sciences are ideally suited for the course. Such candidates would possess an analytical mind; have problem-solving skills, and proficiency with the use of computers
