Industrial Biotechnology

Biotechnology has receives a great deal of recognition in past few years mainly due to significant strides in rapid testing, vaccinations and medications during the pandemic. Apart from healthcare, biotechnology is also driving breakthroughs in consumer items, chemicals and materials synthesized from plants and microbes.

Industrial biotechnology, a major subcategory of biotechnology involves bio-based production of pharmaceuticals, enzymes, nutrients, eco-friendly polymers, biofuels etc. Recent advances in industrial biotechnology permits new applications for biomass waste for resource conservation, emissions reduction and circularity making it an environmentally and economically sustainable technology. With the exponential growth in this sector there is a high demand for skilled manpower for research and development, production, and sample testing facilities.

At MIT School of Bioengineering Sciences & Research, we offer M.Sc (2 years) in Industrial Biotechnology. The course aims to provide fundamental insights into the discipline, promote cutting-edge research and provide industrially relevant skills to the student.

The Industry oriented curriculum will not only open up new avenues for endless career opportunities but also give the students an edge over their peers in term of sound training and acquisition of advance skill sets such as downstream processing, enzyme technology, modeling etc.

Our research oriented faculties, state-of-art laboratories and industry aligned coursework will enable our students in acquiring an entrepreneurial sprit and securing good placement in industry. Those desirous of higher studies abroad will be mentored by our faculties with strong academic credentials from premier research institutes.


Biomaterials focus on substances which can be engineered to interact with biological systems to support, augment or replace damaged tissue.Biomaterials also hold a significant importance for therapeutic, diagnostic and other biomedical applications. It also emphasises on development of new materials that with improved mechanical properties, enriched cell material interface, scaffolds for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Categorised into 3 major type’s metals, ceramics and polymers, these materials have profound applications in biomedical domain. With advances in material sciences new properties are explored by forming composites using these parent sources. The course at MIT SBSR centres on introducing different types of biomaterials, explaining their basics properties and exploring its applications. Advanced material science laboratory will aid students in synthesis, characterisation of industrially important biomaterials. With a futuristic view, students are trained over modelling and simulating artificial organs using 3D print technology.

Hands-on Training Is Provided On The State Of Art Modelling Software With Free As Well As Proprietary Packages Such As Moe, Vlife Sciences, Discovery Studios, Gromacs, Mat Lab Toolbox, R, Schrodinger Etc. To Help Students Work On Live Projects Such As Building Predictive Models In Bioinformatics/chemoinformatics.

The basic bioinformatics courses include sequence analysis, introduction to fundamental concepts, phylogeny, machine learning methods etc. Advanced bioinformatics courses are imparted to students opting for bioinformatics specialization in later semesters, such as genomics, proteomics, systems biology, protein modelling and drug design. Research fellows at the institute work on projects involving cutting edge research at the global level. Students trained in this field can find jobs in bioinformatics companies, IT companies in life sciences domain as data scientist, information analysts, software engineers, etc. The scope of bioinformatics is vast as it has applications in agriculture, drug design, material design, toxicity testing etc. and consequently the industry players in this field.



The term “Biomedical” is often associated with the clinical/medicine domain. With recent trends, it has been found out that engineering has loads of applications in the healthcare domain. Be it Genetics, Medical Imaging, Medical instruments etc. Engineering and Medicine have been fused up like never before. The advancements in engineering two decades back evolved Biomedical Engineering as one of the most preferred field of study by the researchers. Revolutionary technologies in hospitals and surgical rooms has significantly advanced the human health leading to an improved quality of life. A Biomedical Engineer has this unique opportunity to use his skills from mathematics, physics, engineering and biology, anatomy and physiology all together to build up new technologies benefiting human health.

At MIT School of Bioengineering Sciences and Research, we strive to build a strong foundation in research and application engineering. Specialized subjects covered in the course include

  • Sensor: Biosensors, Chemical Sensors.
  • Lab on Chip
  • Diagnostic and therapeutic devices
  • Nanomaterials
  • Artificial organs, robotics, implants.
