ABOUT THE UNIVERSTIY
Gandhi Institute of Engineering and Technology University (GIETU) a professionally managed UGC approved University established in 2018 under the Act of the State of Odisha, The GIETU has originally came out from The Gandhi Institute of Engineering and Technology was established in the year 1997 in Gunupur, in the State of Odisha, India. Over a period of 22 years, we have grown by leaps and bound and today we are a prominent technological university in the eastern part of India.The University has State of Art Infrastructure with approx 4000 students and is known for its quality engineering education and is approved by national accreditation agencies like NBA, NAAC and DSIR. Till date more than 11,000 students have passed out and are successfully placed in India and abroad. At present we are having 13 B.Tech Programs (Biotech, CSE, IT, ECE, Robotonics, Aerospace, Food Engg.& Tech, Petrochemical, EE, EEE, Mechanical, Civil and Chemical),B.Sc Agriculture, M.Tech (Biotech, CSE, Structural Engineering, Construction Engineering, Mechanical Design, Manufacturing Engineering, Power Electronics, ECE and Chemical Engineering) M.Sc (Biotech, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Life Sc.), MBA and Doctoral Research (Ph D) programs in most these disciplines. At GIET University we believe that partnerships through research and teaching collaborations are essential in delivering its overall strategic aims.
ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2003. The Department caters the goal of the University enshrined its preamble. The vision and mission of the department is pusuance for excellence to achieve sustainable development and to impact training for capacity building to tackle focused research and product development in frontier areas of Biotechnology. The department is accredited by NBA. It offers Ph.D, M.Tech, M.Sc and B.Tech programmes.
International Conference on “Advancement of Biotechnology in Healthcare, Bioproducts and Environmental Research” (NCABHBE19) aims to create a common platform for Academicians, Researchers, Industrialists and Students to present & discuss on latest development on healthcare, bioproducts and environmental sectors. As we are aware that Healthcare sector growing at a rapid rate leading to new research for the development of affordable therapeutics, vaccines, advance drug delivery system. This has been contributing significantly in improving the health of the population & the economy, at the same time with the rapid economic progress coupled with the global climate changes, our health and environment has been largely affected and has actually reached to an alarming state in certain areas. Agriculture productivity is the key to the rural economy & large scale biotech interventions in this area with inputs like improved biofertilizers, biopesticides, growth promoters, GM seeds can replace the traditional practices & improve agriculture productivity & rural economy. Therefore the conference would deliberate on some of the key research happenings in this areas & the conglomeration of intellectuals attending the conference shall give us a great opportunity to learn & exchange their thoughts and help the participants to add new dimension to their research.
