GATE 2017 Exam Pattern / Syllabus for Biotechnology
GATE is one of the famous examination for the students of engineering. It conducts all over the India. GATE is conducted every year in India by Indian institute of Science (IISc) and seven Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) at Bombay, Delhi,Guwahati,kanpur,kharagpur,Madraas and Roorkee.This exam is conducted for undergraduate students of engineering and science of various fields.
Biotechnology Engineering is a combination of engineering, chemistry, genetics, bio-chemistry and microbiology.Biotechnology Engineering is the best course to equip a student for this field. Biotechnology Engineering Biotechnology Engineering deals with the study of animal husbandry, agriculture, energy production and conservation, pollution control, disease research, eco-conservation, and research and development of medicines, vaccines, fertilizers and insecticides.
