It is high time to bridge the  gap between technology and demand of industry and society. It is indispensable to make  course comprehensible  with due  care  against the  intricacies  developed in the process of simplification, said  Prof. Rajen Govind Harshe, Vice-Chancellor of Allahabad University on Monday.

He was speaking as chief guest in  a workshop on  curriculum development of B.Tech course held at Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology.
Prof Harshe said that   best minds are bred   by the mentors , hence teachers and researchers should join hands in inculcating the scientific temperament among the budding engineers.

Presiding over the workshop. Director of MNNIT, Prof Arun Baran Samaddar said that  time has come  when  we have to lay our emphasis on modern technologies  and biotechnology qualifies   all the virtues   and  demands due weightage  to advance research in its field .

President of National science Academy VP Kamboj  spoke on biotechnology is  inter-disciplinary  study and said that it has potential of hybrid vigour.

Incharge of biotechnology course at MNNIT, Sonia Varshney said that  it was matter of concern that we have  not generated  intellectual property and have achieved success only in industry. She further said that  since  education of biotechnology differs from  other  streams of studies and branches of engineering course hence  emphasis should be laid on  quality of education.

Prof Subir Kundu of IT BHU  highlighted the problems  in the field of biotechnology   and said that the inadequate number of research personnel, staff and infrastructure are impediments in the development of biotechnology in the country .

CEO of Biotechnology Park, Lucknow, PK Seth  stressed over the development of curriculum  according to the demand of industry. He also talked about institute-industry  research interaction and consortia.

Experts like Triloki Nath, head of applied mechanics, MNNIT, GS Randhawa, IIT Roorkee, Dr R Prasad, IIT Roorkee and Dr M Ismail, National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development     put forth their ideas and modifications in proposed course of biotechnology .
