Department of Bio-Technology

About Department

Biotechnology has made significant advances in recent years and emerged as a front line area of research and development, with an overwhelming impact on the society. Once Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam shared his experience when he was in Anna University, Chennai. He said that a patent was obtained for a new molecule discovered from an herb as an anti-cancer drug. This came out of the fusion of two great minds. One was a Biotechnologist and the other was a traditional siddha medical practitioner. The Department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2002. Milestones of our Department Undergraduate Programme (B.Tech) started at 2002 with 40 seats. • Intake was revised to 60 seats in 2005. • Postgraduate (M.Tech) started at 2008 with 18 seats. • Accredited by NBA - AICTE New Delhi in 2008 and 2013-15
