Home Biotechnology Home Infrastructure

Department of Biotechnology has excellent infrastructure that offers full fledged environment. The Department has a well defined exclusive built space of about 1800 sq. meters at Aryabhatta Orbit with facilities for carrying out both regular academic and research in various areas of biotechnology, housing modern infrastructure to conduct work in Bioprocess technology, Bioinformatics, Genetic Engineering, Plant Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, Immunology animal cell culture etc. The classrooms are fully furnished, equipped with teaching aids like OHP, LCD, project and activity based and well ventilated with esthetic environment.

We have a robust power back up: the college is provided with a HT power line in case of power cuts a generator of 440KV is put to use. Two 0.6KVA UPS are separately used for computers of HOD & Data Entry Operator.

    We have dedicated computer systems catering to the needs of Department of Biotechnology to carry out official work (5 nos), supporting computer systems in Bioinformatics Laboratory (60 nos), and dedicated systems in Department Library (5 nos). We also have an integrated system coupled to the UV-Visible Spectrohotometer. All the Professors, Associate Professors and Assistant Professors are provided with a personal Lap top computer having internet facility also.

    Internet   

    A dedicated 1 GBPS wireless Internet connection is installed to meet the growing needs of staff and students to pursue their research. This facility complements the use of online journals and DELNET, a network of libraries to share books and research material. All the systems on the campus are wired to fileservers. Our students also actively avail the overall Internet facility with about 70 to 80 systems spread in the campus.
