About School of Biology


Education and research in biological sciences are foundation for the development of modern science and technology. The education in biological sciences and technology is important to groom young generation of India for social and economic development. The School of Biology at MIT-WPU is a comprehensive academic unit with broader scope that encompasses diverse areas from molecular and cell biology to highly interdisciplinary areas like biological engineering and Nano-biotechnology. School of Biology at MIT-WPU is contributing to the University towards its journey to become a premier institute at national level with global impact.

We offer education and research programmes in biological sciences, biotechnology, bioengineering and related interdisciplinary areas. We contribute to the existing strength in educating engineering students by offering biological courses in the engineering domain. Our emphasis is to foster interdisciplinary research and graduate training partnerships in human health related fields. We believe in providing right and quality education and research are the foundation to build the next-generation of manpower that can make this transformation possible. Our focus is to develop strong research, technology and innovation aptitude with education and research in biological sciences, biotechnology and bioengineering, form linkages with industry, society and engage in society productive activities.


To be recognized as a center of excellence that exhibits the commitment to excellence in education, research and innovation in the interdisciplinary areas of biological sciences and biotechnology.


The mission of the School of Biology is to provide quality education and empirical learning in the broad field of biological sciences including biology for engineers, to contribute to the field and MIT-WPU through scholarly research, to train the next generation of biological scientists, engineers and research scholars, and to provide professional service.

Welcome to School of Biology at MIT-WPU! We offer masters program in Biotechnology and Ph.D. program in core and interdisciplinary areas of Life sciences. Our courses are intended to develop an insight into molecular and cellular basis of life and its applications in health, medicine, sustainable biotechnologies, preparing a student for a career in research or industry. World Economic Forum has identified healthcare as one of the top 10 Global Challenges for 2030 and there is a growing demand for specialists in this field. At School of Biology, students advance professionally by gaining knowledge and practical skills through interdisciplinary approach with increasing responsibilities in Biotechnology industry, Research and Academia.

In recent years, translation of biotechnology into socio economic development has been realized due to the development of products, processes and services in healthcare, medicine, agriculture, veterinary, environment, energy and other sectors. Considering this, we offer a truly interdisciplinary program and courses in biotechnology encompassing fundamental to futuristic subjects. Besides this school also provides courses on entrepreneurship and innovation in biosciences and biotechnology.

Faculty at the School of Biology are actively involved in the translational research in the healthcare domain. One of the major focus has been on developing bioimaging and diagnostic tools for cancer and infectious diseases.
After completing the comprehensive learning at the school, students and research scholars are well poised to pursue careers in industry, research and academia and in the areas of biotechnology, interdisciplinary areas of bioscience, bioengineering.
