Message from the Coordinator:

The School of Biochemical Engineering (BCE) at the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU) was established in 1986 for accomplishing numerous standards in teaching as well as in the research of the current field of biochemical and bioengineering aspects. The School has kept on renovating its academic programs to impart contemporary education in upcoming areas of biochemical engineering. At present, the school of BCE offers academic courses, including Integrated Dual Degree, M. Tech, and Ph.D. in BCE. Not only this, but the School of BCE also offers industrially oriented courses to students of other departments of IIT(BHU). In the new undergraduate program, the School has been assigned to offer a number of institute level courses either independently or jointly with other departments. The research facilities of the School are utilized not only by other departments of the institute and BHU but also by other teaching institutions and research laboratories across India. At present, there are eight highly dynamic faculty members in the School, who guide inter-departmental/interdisciplinary projects and dissertations. Faculty members are engaged in high-level fundamental and applied researches funded by various funding agencies including DST, DBT, CSIR, ICMR, whereas some projects are also funded by the industries. The faculty members of the schools are trained very well in top tier national and international laboratories.
