About the Department
With technology pervading through our veins and arteries, it is high time we get to know about them with an engineering perspective. So, KCT started the Department of Bio-Technology in 2002 and has been offering B.Tech [ Industrial Bio – Technology ] programme. Being a department which has very specific skill sets as the objective of education, the curriculum is constantly upgraded. Also, faculty members are trained, as and when required, in a constantly evolving field of engineering.
From the HOD’s Desk
Welcome to the Department of Bio-Technology !
It is our pride and privilege to give you a snapshot of the activities of the Bio-Technology Department. The Department commenced its academic and scientific journey in the year 2002, and built up ambience and infrastructural facilities for effective academic and research activities over the period.Our students have excelled in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The faculty members engage in effective curriculum delivery and research on socially relevant projects. Most of our graduates get placed in MNC’s, the rest pursue higher studies in reputed institutes at home and abroad. Our graduates, spread all over the world, are the dynamic ambassadors of our performance!
To create a strong teaching base in the area of Bio-Technology through technical knowledge dissemination to the students, and to scale new heights in research by combining the concepts of professionalism, social justice, environmental impact and human ethics for the welfare of the general public.
– Disseminate a blending of knowledge acquisition and its application in real-life situations to the students.
– Equip the students to adapt to changing global and local needs through well designed curriculum and syllabus.
– Groom students to uphold professional ethics and develop leadership qualities.
– Train students on issues related to social welfare.
