National Institute of Technology Calicut

Calicut-673601, Kerala, INDIA

Profile and history
Profile and History

The school of Biotechnology at National Institute of Technology Calicut is venturing into cutting edge science and technology through its teaching and research activisities. As such, biotechnology has evolved as an interdisciplinary area of science and technology having linked with many engineering fields like chemical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and so on. Highly qualified, motivated and dedicated faculty members and research scholars including the B.Tech students are engaged in quality research work in different areas, like neuroscience, cancer biology, bioprocess technology, fuel cell technology, plant biotechnology and genetic engineering. The school of Biotechnology at National Institute of Technology Calicut came into being as an independent entity in 2009. The school started its Ph.D. programme in 2009 itself and faculty members jumped onto the research arenas of cutting edge science and technology

Academic programmes
Academic Programmes

  • Doctoral degree programme

  • Candidates with Master’s degree in biotechnology or life sciences can do research work under this programme leading to Ph.D. All the research scholars are entitled to receive stipend from Govt. of India once they join the programme. Generally, it takes 3-5 years to get Ph.D. degrees after registration.

  • Bachelor of Technology ( Biotechnology)

  • Candidates with 10+2 after clearing AIEEE can join this programme like any other engineering programme. The interesting point of this programme is that all other engineeirng techniques will be used to unravel different biological phenomena and also to produce lot of essential products for medical science, food industry, agricultural needs etc.
