Department of Biotechnology

The department of Microbiology and Biotechnology is a very impressive division under School of Science in the beautiful campus of Sister Nivedita University. The department is embellished with well educated faculty members holding their doctoral degrees from different reputed institutes and Universities of India. Our smart classrooms enable us to make our students understand the subject more interestingly and enthusiastically. We have well equipped laboratories where our students perform the practical experiments included in their course curriculum as well as conduct research by their own so that they can flourish their innovative ideas. We have our own departmental library. We boost our students not only to build a bright career but to be a good human being and serve for the benefit of society.
