Department Profile

The Department of Biotechnology of Thanthai Hans Roever College was established in 2002. The department offers B.Sc., M.Sc., and M.Phil. programmes in Biotechnology. All the basic infrastructural facilities needed for conducting teaching and research programmes in different areas of Biotechnology have been developed in the department. Totally 10 batches of students have completed their U.G, P.G and M.Phil. degree courses respectively and are working in several prestigious intuitions and industries. Ph.D. programme is also offered form this academic year 2014 - 2015. Thus currently Our Department offers B.Sc., M. Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Biotechnology. The areas of research specialization in the department include microbial technology, enzyme technology, plant biotechnology, bioprocess development and biotechnological control of vector. The Department is also undertaking research projects of national importance in the field of biotechnology and obtained funds from various agencies such as University Grants Commission (UGC) and Tamil Nadu State Council for Science and Technology (TNSCST). A total of 35 research papers have been published by our faculty as well as our students in national and international journals. Biotechnology department has successfully organized refresher courses, national and international seminars and a training programme in Biotechnology and trained teachers from different affiliated colleges and university departments. Due to this excellent quality teaching program, this Department has been able to generate excellent human resources in Biotechnology. The department has an excellent alumni support. The alumni have been guiding the present students with respect to the placements, studies as well as summer trainings.

MISSION AND VISION
