Biotechnology can be viewed as group of useful enabling technologies that have tremendous potential in precision farming and molecular agriculture. In view of the importance of biotechnology, University has initiated Biotechnology program in 1986 to develop suitable biotechnological techniques to complement conventional methods of raising field crops. The Biotechnology program started in 1988 with the support of Department of Biotechnology, Government of India which serve as the nodal department besides imparting training to postgraduate students as part of manpower development program.After initiating the M.Sc. program, the department initiated a Ph.D. program in 1995 and has been offering it as inter-disciplinary program with curricular and faculty inputs from different departments. The M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs essentially provide basic and applied science curricula and specialized skills for profitable employment. The students of this program not only excelled nationally but also internationally. Almost all students qualified the competitive NET/GATE and CSIR and DBT-JRF examinations and found placements in premier National/International Institutes. In 2008, B. Tech Biotechnology programme was started to cater the need of growing industrial sectors. Year 2012-13, we are celebrating our silver jubilee year after completion twenty-five years of Pantnagar Biotechnology programme. During this journey, programme has got national recognition and rated one of the Top-ten biotech schools in the country. In year, 2011 The master’s programme in agricultural Biotechnology has been ranked under A categories.
