About Biotechnology

The Department of Biotechnology at St. Peter’s college of Engineering and Technology was founded in 2014-2015 with a vision to be recognized as a Department of International repute with a strong teaching in biological sciences and engineering. Right from its inception, the department has been offering well-built infrastructural facilities with different laboratories for grooming professional students to meet the persistent demands of the research industry.

  • The exciting and challenging times for technologists in the field of Biotechnology, this finds applications in a variety of domains such as in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products as well as in the making of enzymes. With expanding knowledge of the cell and its functioning at the molecular level, biotechnologists are now seeking answers to prevent life threatening diseases, to meet the energy and food requirements of ever-growing population and also to solve the environmental problems that threaten our very existence on this planet.
  • We also involve in various research projects in the fields such as Environmental biotechnology, Bioprocess Engineering, Biopharmaceutical technology, Molecular Biology & Genetic Engineering and NanoBiotechnology.The faculty members in the department have various research publications in well reputed journals in national and international journals and working for the research and development.
    • The Department of Biotechnology has well equipped laboratories namely Microbiology lab, Biochemistry lab, Cell biology lab, Bio-organic chemistry lab and Instrumental Methods of Analysis lab. These laboratories are facilitated with sophisticated instruments like High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), ELISA Reader, Double-beam UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), bioreactor, PCR, Fluorescence microscope, spectrophotometer and other instruments.
    • Students are encouraged to participate in various activities like paper presentation, technical quiz, sports, NSS, YRC, and cultural activities. Students are taken to various research laboratories for Industrial Visits to gain knowledge about the research activities.

HOD’s Message
