Bioengineering and Technology

The Department of Bioengineering and Technology has been established in the year 2009 to provide state of the art infrastructure for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the field of Biotechnology and research programme in the arena of Biotechnology and allied areas.

The vision of the department is to inculcate in the minds of the students the thirst for knowledge and to make them self sufficient - technically and morally. The faculty member of the department has left no stone unturned in full filling this vision.

As the current trend has open up new vistas in the Biotechnology and allied R&D industries, Biotechnology has become the subject of choice amidst the student fraternity around the globe. The escalating demands of the skilled and trained personnel in those industries have rekindled the interest of the student to take up the various programmes of studies in the field of Biotechnology and relevant disciplines. To cater to this need of the student, especially from the North Eastern region, different programmes have been started for these students at different levels of studies.
