“Science is the acceptance of what works and rejection of what does not” -- Jacobs Brownowski (Biologist)

Vision-Department of Biotechnology of NIT Arunachal Pradesh, optimizes technical and research opportunities and create successful transition for a superior career in biotechnology. Also to create awareness of research that will provide solutions to environmental, industrial, agricultural and health based problems. Our vision is to provide students with a sound knowledge and understanding of current theories, concepts and laboratory practices and trained world-class bioengineers who can propagate knowledge and invent novel technologies to improve the quality of life and welfare of mankind

Mission-Our mission is to utilize the bio resources of mainly Arunachal Pradesh as the state is rich in herbs and biodiversity, to bring about sustainable development in food and medicine emphasizing on the need of the locals. The organic waste of the region can also be converted to useful organic manures and animal feeds. To initiate multi-disciplinary programs through academia-industry interface that is an essential driving force for innovation and to emphasis on recent trends in Biotechnology through organization of conferences, symposia, workshops. The Department of Biotechnology is consistently involving regularly update of the course curriculum to meet the needs of academia and industry.

About the department

Biotechnology currently function as a joint Department since summer of 2015. The discipline of Biotechnology started admitting student in 2014-2015 in 4 years B.Tech in Biotechnology. A total of 7 students got admitted in the 2014-2015 session , 22 students in the 2015-2016 session, 10 students in the 2016-2017 session and 10 students in the 2017-2018 session. The department aims to provide latest state-of-art education, research and innovation in areas of Biotechnology. In general for the country as a whole, and in particular for the North Eastern region full with bio-diversity, bio-resources, bio-medicinal plants etc., the offer of courses in Biotechnology with specialization in bio-medicine, food processing, preservation etc., are decisively befitting for this Institute of National Importance.

The major thrust of biotechnology includes infectious diseases, clinical and health Research, proteomics, biochemical engineering, tissue engineering, drug discovery, nutritional biochemistry, bio-medicinal plants computational biology and cancer biology. The department has recently initiated efforts to establish advanced research laboratories in all the thrust areas under a center for excellence funded by MHRD. Initiative has been taken to invite industrial professionals to interact with students thereby allowing them to understand the challenges and requirements related to industries.
