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.
To excel in education, research, and entrepreneurship in various fields of Biotechnology for contribution to the evolving needs of the society
- To provide an excellent educational experience to the undergraduate students of Biotechnology through quality teaching and advanced curriculum with roots into the fundamentals, that enables students to become leaders in their chosen field of Biotechnology
- To provide vibrant learning and research environment that enables students to focus on lifelong learning to transform into entrepreneurs and renowned researchers
- To instill the spirit of innovation and creativity in young minds through participation in International and National level conferences/hackathons combined with a deep awareness of ethical responsibilities to profession and society
The program is designed to suit the needs of the young technology graduates looking to make a mark in a highly competitive market.
CBIT’s Biotech students, riding on the back of the knowledge and skills acquired during the 4 years spent at the campus, have found placement in a number of big companies. These firms include IT giants like Wipro, Tech Mahindra, CTS, and Infosys along with major firms from other sectors, like Biological E. Limited, Deloitte, and Dr. Reddy’s.
Out of all the students who passed out in the academic year of 2016-2017, 13 got placed; 4 in companies like UBER and BYJU’S.
