Message From HOD

Welcome to the Department of Biotechnology.

The Department of Biotechnology at JSS Science and Technology, Mysuru, was established in 2002 with a vision to empower faculty and students achieve professional excellence in academics and research to solve global problems for the betterment of Human welfare. These objectives can only be realized by treating one another with consideration and respect, and this is what we practice at the department.

This is anexhilarating and thought-provokingera for Biotechnologists. Modern biotechnology, finds applications in a variety of domains like the manufacture of targeted drugs as well as in the production of high quality food we use eat every day. With more in-depth knowledge of the cell at the molecular level, biotechnologists are now seeking answers to prevent life threatening diseases that threaten our very existence on this planet.

Biotechnology is a specialized scientific area focused towards providing better quality of life. In brief, Biotechnology makes use of natural biological process for the societal benefits.Biotechnology Engineering is applied form of biology combined with engineering.

The department is working as an excellent center for learning theoretical and practical aspects of biotechnology. This department has a unique commitment to educating a broad spectrum of students at undergraduate, post-graduate, and doctoral levels.The department offers multiple programs such as Bachelor of Engineering in Biotechnology, Master of Technology in Biotechnology and PhD in Biotechnology. Since inception department is actively involved in thrust areas of biotechnological research such as Medical Biotechnology, Microbial Biotechnology, Chemical biology, Cancer Biology, Plant and Animal Biotechnology andNanobiotechnology. We have well qualified and experienced faculty members who are actively involved both in academics and research.

Department has more than 220+ publications in peer reviewed international journals with high impact factor and  around 4500+ citations. Department has successfully obtained several sponsored research funding worth of 2.0 crore from various government agencies like DBT, DST, VGST, UGC, ICMR, SERB etc. More than 15 scholars are pursuing PhD program and 21 PhDs are awarded till date.

All the laboratories in the department have adequate facilities such as state-of-art equipments, analytical instruments, glassware, and chemicals required to conduct experiments as per the curriculum and research needs.The department has International collaboration and interaction with, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, National University of Singapore, Singapore, Agriculture Research Service, USDA, Maryland, USA, University of Illinois, Chicago, USA Siberian Federal University, Siberia, Russia, CFTRI Mysore, DFRL Mysore, University of Mysore

The Department has a strong advisory board of renowned industrial members for giving strong inputs on curriculum development based on industrial needs.We also have well established industry interaction for student academic project work and internships such as Biocon India Ltd, Bacardi Pvt. Ltd., Anthem Biosciences, Bhat Biotech, Agilent Technologies Ltd,  Cipla pharmaceuticals, Supreme Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd,Prosettabio-conformatics, Nestle India,   Zeus Biotech etc.,

Department provides timely counseling and hands-on assistance to the students. Our alumni have made the department proud by securing admissions in top-notch universities of the country and abroad, securing placements and higher positions in life science industries, qualifying for various competitive exams, and as established entrepreneurs.

We provide education that is holistic and trains students with life skills, which make them job providers and not a job seekers. You are welcome to browse our website for more information or contact us for more detail.I do hope that you cherish your time with us and that you find it a rewarding experience.

Thank You
