Department of Biotechnology Engineering

Dr. H G Nagendra
Professor & HOD

The Department of Biotechnology was started in the year 2002, with a 4 year BE program and a humble intake of 30 students. Being the first institution under the Visvesvaraya Technology University (VTU) to perceive the requirement for an undergraduate technical program in Biotechnology, Sir MVIT played a pioneering role in the formulation of the curriculum, starting with the preparation of draft syllabus, organization of seminars/conferences/workshops, initiating industry-institute interactions etc. Today, the department is entrenched with a talented group of faculties drawn from diverse fields such as, Bioinformatics, Plant biotechnology, Microbial biotechnology, Protein chemistry, Environmental Engineering, Bioprocess technology, Chemical Engineering etc. Apart from bestowing quality training, the department has distinguished itself in the spheres of R & D activities too. The department obtained recognition as an R & D centre by VTU in 2006, and in 2011, an M. Tech Program in Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering was started as well. Thus, it offers M. Tech., M. Sc (Engg.) by Research and Ph.D. programs.
Over these 19 years, the department has steadily grown in terms of its facilities, academics, co-curricular and extracurricular activities. With a clear mission and vision, the Department of Biotechnology has moved forward in academia, securing a total of 21 University level ranks. Many of the graduates have pursued and are pursuing higher studies at various Universities in India and abroad like Indian Institute of Science, IITs, NIFTEM, VIT, Amity, Harward medical school, NUS, North Carolina, Iowa, Warwick Nottingham, Exeter, Massey, Monash, Melbourne, Johns Hopkins, Texas, Georgetown, Georgia, Florida, Carnegie Melon, Uppsala, Max Planck, Maddison, Utah, Lousiana, Wageningen, Hamburg, Ludwick, etc. Our alumni are working/pursuing their careers at reputed organizations like IISc, IITs, NCBS, UAS, IIHR, US-FDA, National Cancer Institute, Quintiles, Biocon, Syngene, Monsanto/Bayer, AstraZeneca, Strand Life Sciences, Sami Labs, Cerner, Dell, Ernst & Young, Goldmann Sachs, Infosys, Wipro, Cognizant, IBM, Biocon Bristol-Myers Squibb Research & Development Center (BBRC) to name a few. Some of them have even started their own ventures as well, and become successful entrepreneurs. The R & D centre has 20 Research Scholars registered for their higher degrees at the department and 13 have successfully finished their assignments. MOUs with 7 organizations have been signed for collaborative research activities. Funded projects worth Rs. 2.9 Crores from various funding agencies like KHT-UK, DST, DBT, ICMR UGC, VTU, VGST, KSPCB, BMS-USA etc., have been executed/carried out. The faculty and students have been actively involved in Research projects in domains like Structural Biology, Bioinformatics, Environmental science, Herbal drugs, Microbiology, Fermentation technology, and Chemical Engineering. The faculty of the department has guided about 150+ UG/PG projects. The faculty and students have published over 117 Research Publications in various National/International Journals and presented over 95 posters at National/International Workshops. The highlight of the department is the establishment of an incubation centre, where our BE and M. Tech alumni have setup start-up ventures on the campus for facilitating the conversion of PoCs to Product development and Commercialization. DBT-BIG labs and BIRAC funded companies are executing projects worth Rs. 6.5 Crores at this centre.
Over the years, the department has conducted over 8 National Conferences, 65 Student Development programmes, 7 faculty development programmes, 8 curriculum development programmes, 45 industrial visits and 97 forum talks from eminent personalities. Regular Alumni and Stake-Holder’s meets are organized by the department. Over 37 issues of the Department newsletter (Genesis) has been published. More than 95 prizes have been won by our students at various intercollegiate / inter-university sports / literary / art / cultural competitions.
