Biotechnology is based on biology, which is the study of life. Biologists study the structure and functions of cells and Biotechnologists use this information to develop products. It provides the opportunity to integrate, interpret, and translate biological phenomena and environmental observations using technology into meaningful decisions.
The Indian Biotechnology sector is one of the fastest growing knowledge based sectors and is expected to play a key role in shaping India’s rapidly developing economy. In biotechnology industrial sector, a huge importance is given to the skilled manpower employed and hence, head-hunting has always been one of the prime priorities. Unfortunately, most of the students of biotechnology lag behind and fail to satisfy the skill requirement of these industries even though they may be strong in theoretical concepts. Hence, it has been marked at various forums that the freshly graduating students are often not – employable though trainable.
Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology is an exclusive Biotechnology Institute in the heart of Jaipur City. Being ISO 9001:2008 certified, the Institute has been working under the constant endeavor of imparting futuristic biotechnology education and to develop a cadre of highly qualified and trained technocrats having dedication for application of Biotechnology. The exclusive biotech institute in Rajasthan has created a niche for itself in the field of Biotechnology education and research in Rajasthan.
Therefore, we at Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology, Jaipur have sensed the need of the hour to bridge the widening gap between Industry and Academia in the field of Biotechnology. Industrial Training is an integral part of the academic course curriculum of undergraduate and postgraduate students studying in the field of Biotechnology and Life sciences.
The Industrial Biotechnology Training Program aims to provide industry specific training to students for skill development and is specially designed for students to gain ‘hands-on’ training experience hence enhancing their job opportunities in biotech industry. Hence, all possible efforts are made to inculcate research aptitude and good work culture among the students through well planned, properly executed and evaluated training. Short term training modules and dissertation projects ranging from 15 days to 6 months have been specifically designed in the application oriented fields of Biotechnology in order to provide maximum exposure to students in terms of latest techniques and instrumentation. The research strength at Dr. B. Lal Institute of Biotechnology, Jaipur spans over diverse disciplines like Molecular Biology, Medical Microbiology, Immunology, Clinical Biochemistry and Environmental Biotechnology undertaking industry sponsored and government funded projects having long term and short term impacts on the society.
Certificates are issued after the successful completion of the dissertation project. The outstanding dissertation project works are encouraged for publications on the interest of the students. Till date, more than 2500 UG and PG students have been successfully trained in our well equipped laboratories under the expert guidance of our experienced faculty.
