B.Sc. (Hons) in Biotechnology (3 Years)

B.Sc. (Hons.) Biotechnology or Bachelor of Science Honours in Biotechnology is an undergraduate Biotechnology course.

Program Overview

Biotechnology is an integrated study of the concepts of chemistry, biology, and cell biology and computer sciences. The degree course covers the study of topics from diverse areas like molecular biology, tissue culture, agricultural engineering, fisheries, genetics, gene therapy, drug design, genomics, proteomics, and genetic engineering for plants, animals, micro-organisms, bioinformatics, fermentation technology and medicine.

In other words, B.Sc. (Hons.) Biotechnology degree course is a combined study of biology and technology that allows scientists to use genetic technology to develop treatments for diseases and to beneficially alter the genetics of humans as well as other life forms. The duration of the course is three years and the syllabus for the course is divided into six semesters. The course an important one which opens many career scopes after its completion for the candidates.

B.Sc. (Hons.) Biotechnology Course Beneficial?

  • B.Sc. (Hons.) (Biotechnology) degree serves as a basis for further higher studies in this field such as M.Sc., Ph.D. and M.Phil. Degree in Biotechnology, the successful completion of which makes one eligible for the post of a lecturer in any university/college as well as for an observer or a scientist.
  • B.Sc. (Hons.) (Biotechnology) degree graduates have the options of pursuing a career in various specializations of Biotechnology such as in Medical Biotechnology, Marine Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Agricultural, Environmental and Industrial Biotechnology.
