"Industrial Aspects of Plant Tissue Culture in Agriculture"

Shobhit Institute of Engineering & Technology, (popularly known as Shobhit Deemed University), is a NAAC Accredited, deemed to-be university established u/s 3 of UGC Act 1956. We are a research-based, industry oriented and highly ranked multidisciplinary University. Our academic programs are duly approved by UGC, and relevant statutory councils, i.e. AICTE, BCI and NCTE etc. Our strong Alumni Network, of more than 50000 graduates, extends throughout the world serving a wide spectrum of industries globally.

Department of Biotechnology was established as premier Department in 2007. We define biological engineering as an analogous sibling to the main, well-established engineering disciplines in being recognizably focused on creating new technologies for a spectrum of application fields based on an identifiable basic science foundation — all using the two “wings” of engineering:” ‘analysis’ and ‘synthesis.

With a goal of developing effective biology-based technologies for application across a broad spectrum of society’s needs, including prominently, but not exclusively, human and environmental health, Biological Engineering students learn within an exciting landscape of research opportunities.
