About the programme
Industrial biotechnology, also known as white biotechnology, accounts for the third wave in biotechnology, following innovation in the healthcare and agriculture sectors. The scope of the Industrial Biotechnology course is to give opportunities to make a change in the field of development. If developed to its full potential, industrial biotechnology may have a larger impact on the world than health care and agricultural biotechnology. It offers businesses a way to reduce costs and create new markets while protecting the environment. Also, since many of its products do not require the lengthy review times that drug products must undergo, it's a quicker, easier pathway to the market. Today, new industrial processes can be taken from lab study to commercial application in two to five years, compared to up to a decade for drugs.
Further, the field of Industrial Biotechnology is gaining a lot of support from the Government and is also funding to allow the companies in developing the processes that are involved in the change.
Perspective on career opportunities in Industrial Biotechnology:
This course aims to cover the in-depth understanding and significant role of biotechnology in multiple industrial domains such as healthcare, enzyme research and microbial technology, drug discovery and development, synthetic biology, and industrial bioprocess technology. Since industries are constantly emphasizing and exploring bio-based products and biotechnology-based technologies for long term sustainability, this course offers diverse career opportunities in both national and international platforms.
