The consortia of the ‘interdisciplinary branch viz. molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, virology, plant and animal tissue culture, chemistry and engineering are included in the world of “Biotechnology”. From last couple of decades, the Era of Biotechnology has grown, extensively and widely. Now is one of the fast emerging “cutting edge” science with wide advantages and applications. Biotechnology offers various offers and opportunities in the fields of basic and advanced research to industry sectors. As per the Global and local need of the society, the view has shifted to exploring the knowledge of life Science for innovative technology development.

Sandip University offers you a 2-year, full-time Masters Degree in Biotechnology (on CBCS pattern) which is divided into 4 semesters. Each semester continues for a period of 6 months followed by a term test. Biotechnology as a study stream for science graduates has emerged as a key biological science segment entailing the detailed study of Bioprocess, Recombinant DNA Technology, etc. of the creatures for the research purpose. The PG program is aimed to cater to the ever increasing demand and to groom the students to in their future career. Today the Education and research sectors require such interdisciplinary trained workforce to develop future generations of science leaders.
