Welcome to Department of Biotechnology


ABOUT DEPARTMENT

Established in the year 2002, The Department of Biotechnology at Ramnarain Ruia College stands strong completing 15 years of astounding success through 12 batches of T.Y.B.Sc and 9 batches of M.Sc. With apex popularity within Mumbai University and beyond, the Department stands proud with several academic and co-curricular achievements of students including University toppers, excelling research/ industry performers and rising entrepreneurs too! The Department strives hard to achieve these goals with the help of its dynamic faculty; a dedicated Departmental library with more than 1000 freely accessible books, dedicated bioinformatics lab, air conditioned, advantageously furnished laboratories, dedicated areas for animal, plant tissue culture and of course ever supporting non teaching and technical staff. While the Department not only boasts of its academic achievements, it also equally focuses on the overall grooming of the student’s persona and their social outreach. They are constantly kept updated about the current trends in applied sciences and associated careers through trending seminars, conferences, guest lectures and workshops held round the year. Since inculcating research aptitude has been a regular practice, students are constantly pursued to take up internships in India as well as abroad. Under DBT’s “Star Scheme”, the Department has been recently encouraged for projects which are on-going or in pipeline. We look forward to many more glorious years with even more achievements and growing stronger alumni.


COURSE INTRODUCTION

Biotechnology is a vast field weaving the basic sciences into an interdisciplinary approach. It is hence a discipline designed to prepare students for a research ready background. As one walks through the syllabus it will be evident that it encompasses a variety of subsections from different science disciplines which in the end connect to each other. The course encompasses fields like cell biology, immunology, fermentation technology, Genetics, Genetic Engineering etc. other than this; entrepreneurship is encouraged by making it an integral part of the syllabus. This broadens the scope of a student to think beyond the limits of a regular job. Aligned to industry and commerce, we introduce the students to the concept of intellectual property rights (IPR) and its provisions in Law.
