SCHOOL OF BIOTECHNOLOGY

The academic objective of the School of Electrical Engineering is to produce high caliber Electrical Engineers, capable of making immediate contribution to industry and taking responsibility of the development, design, construction application and operation of devices and systems. The School takes pride in the fact that its alumni are placed in responsible positions with various central and state government bodies, PSUs in India, and in the private sector, both within the country and outside. The B.Tech. programme combines rigorous training in engineering fundamentals and applications with specialized elective courses to accelerate the area of interest of the students.School of Biotechnology at KIIT (KSBT) was established in 2007 with highlevel intellectual inputs from Prof. Richard R Ernst (Nobel Laureate, 1991), who laid the Foundation stone and Prof. Rolf M Zinkernagel (Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, 1996), who inaugurated the facility. Within a very short span of time, it has become a potential centre of excellence and relevance in the country. The School has come up with strong academics and research-based programs including high-level translational activities. By establishing strong collaboration with various national and international institutions (ETH Zurich, University of Lausanne, University, UCLA, Emory University, UC-Davis, London School of Hygiene, Karolinska Institute, Murdoch University, Meharry Medical College, University of Erlangen) it is marching towards excellence.
