Engineering can be regarded as a field of applied Biology and Chemical
Engineering principles which involves combined technology to enhance and
optimise the quality of a living cell or to produce a particular product with
the desired traits. Genetic Engineering and Tissue Culture comes under this
field of study. The branches of Science such as Genetics, Molecular Biology,
immunology , Biochemistry, Microbiology and Cell Biology are integrated in the
field of Biotechnology with Chemical Engineering and Bioinformatics. As India
is developing in the field of Biotechnology, the scope of job opportunities in
this field will be maximum in the coming years. The areas that focuses on
Biotechnology in India includes Biopharmaceuticals, Bioinformatics,
Agricultural Biotechnology, Bio-fertilizers, Plant Biology, Animal
Biotechnology and Marine Biotechnology.
The job prospects in this field
R&D units of Pharma
Food processing Industry
Drug and Pharmaceutical
Clinical research etc.
With a Biotechnology Engineering degree,
one could help the World in developing better medicines and agricultural
products that doesn’t have any harmful effects on the environment. To get the
best education in this field, a student should study in the best Educational
Institution. METS School of Engineering, situated in Kerala offers quality
education in Biotechnology. During the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, the
staff members and students of the Biotechnology Engineering Department rose to
the occasion and joined together to produce hand sanitizers as per the
directions of WHO in METS Biotechnology Engineering Research Lab under the
guidance of Prof. Deepak Varghese (HOD, Department of Biotechnology), Mr.Vinod
Paul &Ms.NimyPallan (Assistant Professors, Department of Biotechnology).
Thousands of sanitizers were distributed to the public at free of cost. The
Campus also established a dedicated Corona Care Center and arranged a community
kitchen to help the needy. Online classes was conducted by the Campus so that
the lessons are not missed by the students during ‘lockdown’, holding the
slogan "No Lockdown for Learning".
