Message from the HoD

Welcome to the Department of Biotechnology at Kathmandu University! It is a privilege to lead this department as we move toward a new era of exploration in the fields of biotechnology. We are located in block number-7 at the main campus of Kathmandu University Dhulikhel, Kavre. We are not only leaders in biotechnology education but also pioneers to introduce the course of biotechnology in Nepal since 2003 AD.

We are a diverse group of faculty and staff, here to facilitate your transition and growth. We are dedicated to advancing exceptional teaching, research, and training in biotechnology within our classrooms and laboratories through hands-on training, fieldwork and internship. Over the course of time several alumni of this department have worked in national and international institutes all over the world. Others have become prominent biotech entrepreneurs in the country.

The biotechnology department offers BTech, MTech and PhD programs. If you are interested in being a part of this department as an undergraduate, graduate, post graduate student or as a research collaborator I would love to hear from you. It will be my utmost desire to make your stay comfortable and productive. Meanwhile I anticipate your support and cooperation, which can come through your hard work and dedication.

Thank you for visiting and exploring our website. We look forward for your constructive suggestions and feedbacks.
