Overview | Bio Technology

Biotechnology is the research-oriented science including a fusion of biology and technology. The Department of Biotechnology, MM(DU) was established in 2008 and has been significantly contributing in terms of enhancing the knowledge and practical exposure of students, providing them with ample employment opportunities, and development of more advanced technologies.

With vast number of specialties and courses, the biotechnology courses at MMEC have emerged as the youth’s preference. The Department offers courses for all, i.e. everyone aspiring to enroll in biotechnology right from an undergraduate student to a Ph. D aspirant. The success stories of students are a testimony to the faculty’scommitment and appropriate research environment across all the interdisciplinary areas of biotechnology. Our focus is to prepare the students as per the Industry requirement; hence we also train our students on Bio-Safety, Regulatory and Intellectual Property related issues in broader social context and sustainable development.
