About M.Sc Industrial Biotechnology

Industrial biotechnology is a set of practices that use living cells (such as bacteria, yeast, algae) or component cells like enzymes, to generate industrial products and processes. Products include biomass based materials such as fuels and chemicals, while processes include the treatment of waste water and energy efficiency measures. The course is “one of its kind” that integrates academic knowledge with hands on industrial exposure, ensuring a holistic programme towards development of industry ready talent and it also holds great promise to solve global challenges, offering new potential for meeting the world's demand for food, feed, fuel, materials, and more while reducing our impact on the environment.
