Ever since its inception in 1963, SJCE has been in a continuous pursuit of excellence in imparting technical education. Identifying the parameters of input, processing and out put, this institute has left no stone unturned in achieving its goal. As a part of the institutes expansion program the department of Biotechnology was instituted in the year 2002.

The Department of Biotechnology at SJCE provides a full education within the integrated fields of Biotechnology.
Our courses span from introductory classes on bachelor level to advanced courses on master level and doctoral programs .An important part of the education is the Master Project which is part of the official research with one of our research groups.

As a student you will typically follow the designed curriculum of study. It is also possible to take up inter Departmental courses. On these pages you can find an overview of all Courses offered by the Department of Biotechnology. B.E, M.Tech, PhD

If you need help planning your studies you are always welcome to contact our Staff advisors.

The department is proud of technical and innovative excellence of its faculty. The department also boasts of modern and fully equipped laboratories and state of art infrastructure. The syllabus which has been designed by renowned academicians with input from industrial personnel is in tune with the latest developments in the biotech arena and has been chalked out keeping in mind the career prospects for students. The students are thus equipped with an in depth understanding of the field with an updated perspective of most recent developments around the world, thereby making them technically superior and cut above other graduates.

The department has a strong team of faculty drawn from both biological science and engineering background. This enables in imparting to students an amalgamated knowledge of science and Engineering.

“To empower faculty and students achieve professional excellence in academics and research to solve global problems for the betterment of Human welfare”.
M1 – To nurture students to be competent and committed Biotech Engineers dedicated to the service of the nation.

M2 – To create an ambience where student and teaching fraternity generate newer ideas, innovative knowledge and engage themselves in cutting edge research equipping them as leaders and innovators of competitive tomorrow.

M3 – To provide students with skills and exploratory experience through a dynamic curriculum that enable them to reach their fullest potential to be enterprising and employable
