College of Engineering and Technology

Bio - Technology Courses

The Department of Biotechnology was started in the year 2002. It is affiliated to the Anna University, Chennai and is accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi. The institution is recognized by Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), New Delhi. The dignified department possesses on its four pillars of potency - the management, the teachers, students their values and discipline that pave the way for a tough foundation, inculcating visionary ideas with friendship and concord in hard work. Ten batches of students have commendably succeeded from this reputed biotechnology department with flying colors and many were gold medal consignee of the Anna University. Our department serves as a benchmark to all other departments in our institution.
