The Department of Biotechnology at JIIT, NOIDA, established in 2002, remains committed to provide research-informed teaching and learning, and vibrant R & D environment. Faculty with rich research exposure in academia and industry both in India and abroad contributes to the department academic core.
The biotechnology scope is never ending as the power to alter life has just seen its beginning. The field of biotechnology is steadily growing in India. Biotech industry achieves record (15 %) growth in 2012-13. In response to continuously evolving technology and industry needs, curriculum is designed to impart skill sets enabling adaptation to academia, research, and industry. The curriculum provides engineering interface and integrates core subject area knowledge with professional development; focusing on entrepreneurship, analytical and research skills. The research emphasis is reflected in the active doctoral program (46 students pursuing PhD and 27 completed), publications in international/national journals, and sponsored research projects totaling approximately INR-9.44 Crores from premier national funding agencies namely, the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), the Department of Science and Technology (DST), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) and Department of AYUSH. Interaction with leading scientists from academia and industry through invited lectures, workshops and conferences ensures all-round development of the students. Our students continue to secure positions in graduate schools for MS/Ph.D at universities of international/National repute such as Max Planck Institutes, John Hopkins, Georgia Tech, Keck Graduate Institute, Penn State, IITs etc. among others. Many students have been selected in core biotechnology firms Panacea Biotech, Cadilla Biotech, Ranbaxy, and Premas Biotech Ltd.
A technical hub “RIBOSE” involves students in societal projects/events. Institutional Bio-safety Committee (IBSC) and Institutional Ethical Committee (IEC) are in place as per mandatory requirement of Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India, to generate awareness and monitor bio-safety aspects and regulations.
