Undergraduate Program: B. Tech in BSBE

Biology is currently experiencing a golden age of research-driven discovery and the undergraduate curriculum (B. Tech) of the BSBE aims to expose students to exciting new fields of knowledge while also providing opportunities for obtaining valuable hands-on research experience. The program provides a unique fusion of biology with other basic and engineering sciences. Undergraduate students compete for scholarships and R&D internship in Biotech/Biopharma industries under the auspices of endowment funds established by IITK alumni. Admission to the B. Tech program is through the joint entrance examination (JEE) conducted by the IITs.
