B.Sc (Hons.) in Biotechnology

 

COURSE OFFERED DURATION (IN YEARS) ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
B.Sc (Hons.) In Biotechnology 3 12th standard pass with science subjects, at least 60% marks

Disclaimer: TNU reserves the right for relaxation in admission criteria for the most deserving candidates.

TNU’s B.Sc in Biotechnology courses is designed to provide students with a strong fundamental idea and advanced study of cell and tissue culture, genetics, bio-medicinal and non-medicinal products, pharmaceuticals, bioprocesses, new technologies and engineering. The designed curriculum, laboratory facilities, research based teaching, projects, and opportunities to get trained in leading biotechnological firms will make students in this programme competent for both industrial sector and academia.

As the global population grows, scientists look to biotechnologists for solutions to various problems like adequate food, infant mortality and sustainable agriculture. Biotechnologists tap into the resources available now to improve the quality of life.

Be a Biotechnologist & make an impact to everybody’s life,

Healthcare Biotech is benefiting more than 350 million patients around the world through the use of biotech medicine to treat and prevent every day and chronic illnesses.

It is estimated that by 2020, 50% of all medicines will come from biotech!

Energy Biotech in the form of biofuel is helping to fight global warming as an alternative and safer form of global energy. It has led to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions with the aim to reduce a 2.5 billion tons of C02 equivalent per year by 2030.

Agricultural Biotech offers new, improved and adapted agricultural crops to reduce poverty and can increase food security for a growing global population.

Environmental Biotech is to solve environmental problems like depletion of forests and water resources, resultant biodiversity loss; climate change-related crop pattern as well as disease pattern changes; waste/ effluent management issues in a sustainable way.

Marine Biotech is involved towards development of useful products and process from the marine resources, for aquaculture production and productivity increase

Bioinformatics deals with bio-IT services, which covers computational biology, computational chemistry, genetic sequencing etc. It is all about application of computer technology to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information.
