  1. Respected sir, i have passed 12th with 50 percent aggregate in PCB. i want to know about b tech in biotechnology. i want to get direct admission in thi course.kindly readdress me about this including fee structure.

  2. hi

    who has written this data without even having the correct information. the placement data are vague. Only 3-4 companies were there for biotechnology placement and it was absolutely without the help of faculties. faculties are there just to teach M.sc students they are not even well versed with B.tech students.
