B.Tech in Chemical Engineering at Hindustan covers a wide range of domains spanning from basic sciences to applied science emphasizing on research and development. This programme serves as a bridge between industry and academics and is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge about the various processes in the chemical industry. It strives to develop industry-centric professionals specialized in chemical engineering principles, process design, petroleum refining, unitoperations, unitprocesses and other core chemical engineering subjects


Biotechnology is defined as " any technological application that uses biological systems, living organisms or derivatives of thereof, to make or modify products or processes for specific use ( UN Convention Biological Diversity, Art.2). In simple words, Biotechnology is technology based on biology. It is a fusion of science and technology where living organisms or systems are used to develop or manufacture new products.


B.Tech Biotechnology is an innovative programme offered by the department of Chemical Engineering. It intends to provide students an understanding about the various scientific processes combined with modern technological aspects, so that they are well versed in the field of genetic engineering, cell biology, Bio-Process Engineering, Downstream Processing, Immunology, Drug design and so on.
