Industrial biotechnology involves working with nature to maximize and optimize existing biochemical pathways that can be used in manufacturing. The industrial biotechnology revolution rides on a series of related developments in three fields of study of detailed information derived from the cell: genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics. As a result, scientists can apply new techniques to a large number of microorganisms ranging from bacteria, yeasts, and fungi to marine diatoms and protozoa. Industrial biotechnology is one of the most promising new approaches to pollution prevention, resource conservation, and cost reduction. Aspiring candidate can definitely acquire knowledge in the application of various biotechnological and biochemical concepts in an industrial perspective and will be able to design innovative processes and products. He/ She can develop solution to address the demand for sustainable supply of fuels and food through biological means. A career in industrial biotechnology offers a variety of work assignments which includes basic research, process development, production, technical services, quality control or compliance control in the field of medicine, food and pollution control.



Biotechnology engineering is the study, research and development of micro-organism and cell functions in living beings. The course combines engineering with other subjects like chemistry, genetics, bio-chemistry, microbiolog and Chemical Engineering. Biotechnology covers different fields of work like agriculture, disease research, eco-conservation, fertilizers, vaccines, energy production and animal husbandry.Creating biological solutions for the millions of problems out there is all in a day’s work for biotechnology engineers. Whether it’s medicine, agriculture, cell or seed technology, biotechnology engineering is the place where these solutions are dreamed up. As with most interesting careers, it’s extremely competitive
