B.E. or B.Tech. (Biotechnology Engineering) is an undergraduate Biotechnology Engineering course. Biotechnology is a field of applied biology which includes the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine and several field requiring bio-products. Biotechnology also helps in utilizing these products for manufacturing purpose. Now we know them an genetic engineering and cell and tissue culture technologies. This subject includes several procedures for modifying living organisms for human purposes i.e. domestication of animals, cultivation of plants and improving them through breeding which employ artificial selection and hybridization. This course opens several job opportunities for aspirants.
