Biotechnology engineering is the research and study of micro-organism, bio-organisms, cell functions in living beings. It is basically the blend of both Biological science and technology. Biotechnology engineering is the field of chemical engineering and applied biology that incorporates the use of living things in technology, medicine, engineering and other significant applications.
Biotechnology engineering can be taken up at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels which would be for the duration for 4 and 2 years respectively.
The field has been one of the most sought-after fields, that is pursued by more than 50 per cent of the youth every year. Students with degrees in biotechnology can get into various healthcare centres, universities, hospitals, research centres, etc. They can also go for further studies in the field or become research scientists.
