Our M.Tech.program at IIT Gandhinagar has been developed keeping in mind the interdisciplinary framework of Biological Engineering, as well as the strengths of the current faculty group. The courses cover topics in Biological Sciences and Bioengineering both such as Cell and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Genetic Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Nanobiotechnology. 


The scope of the Biological Engineering program at IIT Gandhinagar will be expanded in the near future to include other topics in Bioengineering and computational aspects of biology as well. These additions will include courses such as Bioprocess Engineering, Bio-electricity, Biophysics, Bioinformatics, etc. Special emphasis will be given to understanding complex but fundamental concepts of various biological phenomena, and also on the development of a strong experimental skillset needed to understand such phenomena.

Program aim

We aim to recruit students with good knowledge of Cell Biology / Biochemistry / Molecular Biology / Genetic Engineering / Neurobiology / Genetics / Pharmacy and /or B.Tech. students from Biological Engineering / Biotechnology / Pharmacy. The broad-based curriculum, along with IITGN’s emphasis on the humanities and social sciences will not only provide a solid foundation in biological engineering but will also enable the appreciation of their learning tower, real-world applications.The program will follow the general requirements and guidelines of M.Tech. programs at the Institute level, including thecourse work, thesis credits, termination criteria, etc.
