The Department of Biotechnology has grown in leaps and bounds. Since our inception in the year 2005, the department has spawned brilliant chemical engineers, scientists, and biotechnologists. And it keeps churning out talent on a regular basis, thanks to the perfect combination of state-of-the-art infrastructure and exceptionally qualified faculty.
The Department of Biotechnology at C.B.I.T. is known for providing excellent student experience in education, research and training for entrepreneurship in all aspects of Biotechnology. The Department of Biotechnology at C.B.I.T. was founded in 2005, and since its inception, its Undergraduates have been successful in their future career journeys to either top-class Biotech companies or to Higher Education leading to Masters, PhD, and Assistant Professors in leading Indian Universities and abroad. Additionally, some students have become self-reliant and opened their start-ups or other models of entrepreneurship.
Currently, our department is aligned on 5 domains for Teaching/Learning and Research – 1) Industrial and Bioprocess Engineering, 2) Medical Biotechnology, 3) Plant Biotechnology, 4) Animal Biotechnology, and 5) Bioinformatics.
We are constantly improving our Laboratory and keep on adding more equipment and research facilities. Currently we have Double beam UV Visible spectrophotometer, Probe sonicator, Rotavaporator, Gel Documentation, Inverted LED Microscope including Mac CAM DC-5, micro centrifuge, 3 different types of fermenters, PCR-Master NEXUS Gradient, Digital photo Fluorometer, etc. in our Wet-lab. We have dedicated Computer Lab and Lab Space with 20 well-figured computers.
Currently, we have 12 highly qualified faculty members and many of them are Ph.D. holders from leading institutions like IITs, and abroad. Our department, and more specifically, our Faculty Body believes in student engagement in activities of research, organizing conferences, workshops, ideathons and interaction with industries. Our student club is Biotechnology and Bioengineering Club of CBIT, BBC-CBIT. The club becomes the focal point for professional enrichment, networking, and leadership skills, build relationships, and also involved in extracurricular activities, and have fun too!
Our placement record towards gainful engagement is always more than 95% till date. Students got placed in various companies like Dr. Reddy’s Lab, Capgemini, Accenture, Cognizant, GenC, Wipro, MuSigma, TCS, Winred Technologies, to name a few. Many of the students even opt for higher education in reputed institutes like Indian Institute of Science Bangalore, Imperial college of London, John Hopkins University, Washington University in St. Louis, University of California, Georgia Tech University, Trinity College Dublin, Rutgers University, University of Honheim, Germany, etc. Some of our students have taken the path of academia and obtained faculty positions in various colleges. Some students have become entrepreneurs in various domains making the department proud of their achievements.
The department believes in giving more hands-on training to students and think beyond the curriculum by encouraging students to undergo vigorous internships in various reputed institutes during summer breaks. Also, the Department motivates students to pursue MOOCs courses for gaining edge over other students in subject area.
13 students of 2018-22 batch have completed Honors/Minor engineering degree from Biotechnology department. Department encourages students to engage in research and innovation, which allows them to deepen their knowledge and skills, and also contribute to the field. Every year students publish Papers and Patents along with faculty under their guidance.
To excel in education, research, and entrepreneurship in various fields of Biotechnology for contribution to the evolving needs of the society
