One of the main strengths of the department of Biotechnology is the excellent fraternity of Alumni.
Our alumni always extend their full support and cooperation to any kind of departmental activities by their regular interaction through E- mails and telephonic conversations. The department has a vibrant alumni network in social media such as Face book (https://www.facebook.com/groups/dscebiotech/), through which the alumni are sharing their views.
The department has an Alumni Coordinator who always keeps in touch with each alumnus and gathers their feedback and inputs. The alumni exchange their ideas and innovative thoughts to enrich the existing curriculum and various departmental activities.
The alumni regularly share their experiences about their higher studies and industrial sectors. They provide suggestions and supports to their juniors in guiding them further to pursue their career in Biotechnology and allied disciplines. They also assist them in short term training programs, internship and other innovative academic programs. Recently, we conducted an alumni survey with regards to the curriculum enrichment in which 75 % of our alumni shared their valuable feedback. The department forever looks forward to get their precious suggestions and inputs.
Some of the key highlights about our alumni are:
- Our alumni are pursuing higher studies in various reputed institutions in India such IISc, IIT, NIT etc. and premier foreign Universities across the world.
- Our alumni are working in popular Biotechnology industries and R &D institutes in India and Abroad.
- Our alumni are working in premier IT sectors such as Infosys, HCL, IBM, Wipro, Cognizant etc.
