MIT World Peace University and its institutions have been instrumental in providing quality education. The advances in science and technology have always provided great opportunities for bringing about economic opportunities and social change. Biotechnology is at the centerstage of it and has largely influenced research and innovations at local, national and global levels.

Biotechnology is a truly interdisciplinary technology that has led to significant socio-economic progress. 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. It signifies dealing with biological systems at the molecular, cellular and organic level to develop technology in terms of either a product or a process.

This post-graduate program harnesses the core principles of biotechnology and bioengineering to generate controlled processes or products related to healthcare, biopharmaceutical, industrial and sustained biotechnologies. It covers a broad range of subjects from biochemistry, genomics, proteomics, stem cell technology, nanobiotechnology, biomimetics, bioanalytics, pharmacovigilance, computational biology, systems & synthetic biology.

The course structure is designed in consultation with leading researchers, biomedical, clinical and industrial experts to give a specialized knowledge and practical skills needed for a career in biotechnology.

Moreover, the program emphasizes industry exposure, innovation, entrepreneurship and life skills. The program has a dedicated course on entrepreneurship and innovation as well.
