About Course

Industrial Biotechnology is a form of applied Biotechnology. A student learns to apply his knowledge of Biotechnology for producing and processing materials, bio-energy, chemicals and also pharmaceuticals products. Industrial Biotechnologists find alternatives to preserve natural resources through alternatives and sustainable form of development.

Professionals in this domain learn to use micro-organisms and other enzymes for manufacturing products. They often replace chemical catalysts with biological catalysts to perform processes.

We are in an era where there is a fight for reducing green house emissions and preserving the environment and planet. Industrial bio-technologists can assume a very prominent role, as they are the ones who can come up with ideas of manufacturing products using less energy, reducing waste and still ensuring higher yields at reasonable pricing.

On successful completion of the course, one can work in sectors of paper and pulp, food industries, energy and textiles.
