Biotechnology is the field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and other industries requiring bio-products. This program is designed to expose students to recent exciting developments in biotechnology and their application in the industries, medicines and agriculture etc. B.Tech degree in Biotechnology exposes students to both biological science and industrial processes, thereby giving them a well-rounded education and skills to work in industries and labs. Apart from studying about basic biological science related subjects, students are also exposed to the modern subjects like bioinformatics, stem cells and genetic engineering.
Biotechnology engineering applies in the field of animal husbandry, energy production, agriculture, eco-conservation, pollution control, disease research, and research and development of medicines, fertilizers, insecticides etc.
B.Tech Biotechnology is a 4 year programme whose curriculum includes courses from biology and technology together with relevant research projects and laboratory programs. The course covers subjects like enzymology, bioprocess engineering, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, bioprocess engineering, bioanalytical technology, basic computational biology and other related subjects. Elective subjects are also offered to the students that prepare them for the future challenges and intended area of specialization.
The curriculum of this programme at Sharda Group of Institutions is designed to cater to the demands of industry and to meet the challenges of the future. The foundation of biotechnology engineering program lies in the basic sciences – Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biotechnology. In the final year, each student completes a substantial research project addressing industrial, regulatory and several management issues surrounding biotechnology.
10+2 pass from a recognized board or university with Physics, Chemistry, English and Mathematics/Biology as compulsory subjects and a minimum of 50% marks.
Some Major Domains are as under:
Environment biotechnology has become another area of extensive work due to the dangers brought about by increasing levels of environmental pollution. In this field, the job of a biotechnologist spans from checking industrial & air pollution levels, treatment of industrial wastes, recycling of sewage sludge using bio-technological inputs & controls.

Scope / Career Prospects
B.Tech Biotechnology at Sharda Group of Institutions offers a rewarding and promising career. It is a rapidly growing field and the demand of biotechnological experts is also growing consistently in India as well as abroad. This field offers a blend of many specializations and lucrative job opportunities are available for the successful candidates.
After completion of the program, biotechnology engineers can find job opportunities in pharmaceutical companies, agriculture and chemical industries. They can be employed in the areas of planning, production and management of several bio-processing industries. After pursuing B.Tech Biotechnology, students can easily find jobs in research laboratories run by government as well as private organizations.
They can even join government and corporate run research and development organizations. On the whole it is a very good career opportunity for the bright young people. B.Sc. (Bio-Tech) may also find employment as above but initially in a non executive or support role more as laboratory or production junior executive or in an assisting role. The published figures of Biotechnology Association shows a demand forecast of 2.5 million jobs in next decade, out of which 2.5 lakh jobs will be quality jobs requiring B.Tech./Graduate /P.G. Degrees and Diplomas. In take capacity such large numbers is currently severely limited.
India is ranked among the top 12 biotech destinations in the world and is the third biggest in Asia-Pacific in terms of the number of biotech companies.”The biotechnology sector is one of the fastest growing knowledge-based sectors in India and is expected to play a key role in shaping India’s rapidly developing economy.
