School of Biotechnology & Biological Science

The Department of Biotechnology was established in 2003 with a view to develop a center of excellence for education and research in biotechnology. In so doing, a four-semester AICTE-approved and DBT supported M.Tech. programme in Biotechnology was started with students qualifying in the All India level Combined Biotechnology Entrance Examination (CBEE) conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. It is pertinent to mention that WBUT and Annamalai University are the only two centers in the country in M.Tech Biotechnology supported by the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India. 

The programme took off successfully in early 2003. A modest infrastructure has been developed with the financial support from WBUT and other national funding agencies viz., DBT, BRNS, AICTE, CSIR and DST. In 2005, the Department of Bioinformatics was started with a four semester AICTE approved M.Tech programme (M.Tech. in Bioinformatics). The School of Biotechnology (recently renamed School of Biotechnology and Biological Sciences) was set up in 2006 for all round development of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. 

The main focus of the School of Biotechnology & Biological Sciences is education and training of students in various facets of frontier Science. The post B.Sc. integrated Ph.D courses in Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Bioinformatics are the other important courses under this School. A Centre for Genetic Counseling is run where outreach activities in the form of diagnosing and counseling of patients suffering from genetic disorders is carried out. In 2007 a workshop sponsored by ICMR was also conducted in this area. Considering the excellent response and demand of the students plans of enhancing the number of seats along with the laboratory facilities will be the future goal of the School. In addition plan to start a post graduate course in Genetic Counseling is in the pipe line.

We have also been able to set up a Transmission Electron Microscopy Laboratory in early 2007 which provides user facility to various sister organizations. Eventually in early 2008 a hands on training program on Prokaryotic whole cell visualization was organized with eminent microscopists from all over the globe as instructors. 108 participants from different parts of the country attended the workshop. This occasion was used as a platform to name the Center as "N. N. Dasgupta Electron Microscopy Center". 

The Alumni of the School has recently established an Alumni Association (WBUT Biotech Alumni Association, WBAA) in order to promote good interaction among them and have been organizing events successfully since 2008. Recently another now milestone has been achieved by the WBAA collaborating with the School of Biotechnology and Biological Sciences in releasing its own official magazine called "BIOVARIANCE".

School of Engineering & Technology

The School of Engineering & Technology consists of four departments. They are Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Department of Information Technology, Industrial Engineering & Management and Department of Micro-Electronics & VLSI Technology. 

Vision: To excel in imparting quality training in technological education and carry out research in frontier areas of Computer Science & Engineering and Industrial Engineering. This School aims to become a Centre of Excellence in teaching and research as well as a nodal centre to act as an Academic Staff College for training teaching personnel for engineering and technological institutions. 

Mission: To create an excellent teaching- learning environment where undergraduate and postgraduate students are made aware of the state-of-art technological developments. To offer a wider spectrum of knowledge and develop the set of skills required to prove ones ability in the highly competitive world of technological learning.

There is a proposal for opening up B.Tech courses in Electronics and Communication and Computer Science & Engineering in addition to the present B.Tech. courses in the near future
School of Management Sciences

The School of Management& Science (SOMS) was set up by the West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT) in July 2006. The aim of the School was to function as a centre for advanced studies and research in Management and allied disciplines. The objectives of the School of Management can be broadly summarized as under:

  1. Promote cutting edge research in different areas of management, economics and finance, and other social sciences with special emphasis on interdisciplinary research; 

  2. Introduce new and relevant programmes at the postgraduate levels which would foster an effective interface between industry and academics;

  3. Support the different programmes running under WBUT in management and allied disciplines in terms of updating their course structure and syllabi, and also improve and upgrade the evaluation and examination process. 

    To fulfill these objectives, the School of Management started the M. Phil and Ph. D programmes in Management, is actively involved in executive and faculty development programmes, and regularly organizes seminars and workshops. 

    The Department of Natural Science is also currently housed under SOMS and is headed by the Director, School of Management. 

    Location and Infrastructure
    The School of Management is located on the second floor of the University. The School houses the office of the Director and that of the other faculty members. Each faculty member is provided with separate study space, locker, computer (with internet facilities) and personal phone. The School shares common class rooms with other departments of the University. The class rooms are equipped with teaching aids like LCD, OHP and white boards. Most of the classrooms have air conditioned facility. The School used the computing facilities of the IBM lab located in the ground floor of the university as well as other computing facilities spread across the university. The School has access to software like Matlab, Statistica etc. which are frequently used for computational purposes. 

    The School uses the library resources of the university which has a rich and varied collection of books and journals, including a large repository of e-journals. The library boasts of Ebsco Premiere as well as e-journals and books from Springer, which all faculty members can access from their offices. 

    Current Activities of the Management School
    The activities undertaken by the School of Management to fulfill the afore-mentioned objectives can be grouped under two broad headings:
    1. In-house activities which seek to promote research, train prospective researchers, and introduce high-quality academic programmes;
    2. Supervisory activities which try to support undergraduate and post-graduate programmes in the affiliated colleges of the University.


    In-house Activities
    (A) Programmes offered in Management
    M. Phil and Ph. D in Management - WBUT has given approval to several institutes in the state to offer a postgraduate degree programme in management. In most of these institutes there is dearth of quality management faculty in terms of both numbers and desired qualification. There is, therefore, an urgent need to initiate a programme to develop and train management faculty members. SOM is addressing this need by offering an M. Phil and Ph.D programme in Management. Armed with such a degree, students will be encouraged to take up academics as a career option. 

    Executive Development Programmes - School of Management in collaboration with South-Asian Management Technologies have started offering various certification programmes leading to Postgraduate Professional Diploma in various specialisations from June 2006. 

    A number of programmes have been held in various locations including India, Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Nepal. The courses have been very well accepted by the industry. Such programmes have also been offered in collaboration with the Department of Information Technology, Government of Sikkim. Courses have been offered in the areas of Credit Risk Management, Information System Audit, Cyber Security and Cyber Forensics, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning etc. 

    Indian Bankers Association, the apex body of the Indian Banks, have confirmed that the courses in the respective areas are useful to supply the current skill requirement in the banking industry.

An Introduction
The Government of West Bengal set up an expert committee on December 31, 1998, under the Chairmanship of Ashesh Prasad Mitra, Eminent Scientist to explore the necessity and scope for establishment of an Engineering / Technology University in the stste of West Bengal. 

The University came into operation formally with the assumption of the office of the first Vice Chancellor on January 15, 2001 as a sequel to the promulgation of THE WEST BENGAL UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY ACT, 2001, under West Bengal Act XV of 2000 passed by the West Bengal Legislature. The University started its academic programme, from July 16, 2001 following a Notification from the Department of Higher Education, Government of West Bengal dated June 15, 2001 through the affiliation of Engineering and Management Institutions / Colleges and has entered the eighth year of its functioning. The University is included in Section 2F and also in Section 12B of UGC and recipient of UGC Grant. 

We are equal opportunity, affirmative action institution and do not distinguish on the basis of gender, caste, creed and religion. The University wants to grow nurturing innovative / novel ideas that would touch all segments of the society especially the marginalized ones. We look at technology from a broad social perspective and are organizing postgraduate courses in basic and applied sciences. The University has introduced new courses in emerging areas to develop, enhance and higher education. We strive for optimum utilization of recourses and believe in unleashing individual initiative for entrepreneurial development without compromising the collective need. 

The University is steadfast in its twin objectives:
a) To serve as a Centre of Excellence in teaching and research in technology and management area.
b) To provide framework of industrialization based on knowledge economy. 

To realize its mission of emerging as a Centre of Excellence the University has created three Schools of Studies viz. School of Engineering & Technology (SET), School of Biotechnology & Biological Sciences (SBTBS) and School of Management and Sciences (SOMS) comprising presently of five departments viz. Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Department of Industrial Engineering & Management, Department of Biotechnology, Department of Bioinformatics and Department of Management and Sciences. 

The Schools formed in this University would function in the same style as the Schools in Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. The Directors of the Schools ate taking steps to open up new departments in the Schools and the Departments are motivated to encourage inter-disciplinary research and teaching. All the departments enjoy full academic autonomy, and provide overall guidance in nurturing our ideas of development and help intergrate disciplines to provide new focus. The SET offers B.Tech. in CSE and IT as well as M.Tech. in Software Engineering, M.E. in Computer Science & Engineering, M.E. in Information Technology, M.Tech. in Microelectronics and M.Tech. in Industrial Engineering & Management. The SBTBS offers M.Tech in Biotechnology (supported financially by Department of Biotechnology, Government of India), M.Tech. in Bioinformatics, Integrated Ph.D. Programme in Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Bioinformatics and Ph.D. programs in emerging areas. The University also offers an Integrated Ph.D. program in Physical Science and Chemical Science in collaboration with S. N. Bose Centre for Basic Sciences. The SOMS offers M.Phil in Management, Material Science and Glycobiology. SOMS has also initiated professional training courses in other countries for foreign students in collaboration with South Asian Management Technology (SAMT). 

SPECIAL FEATURES
Our teching staff includes, besides the core faculty, visiting faculty, adjunct faculty members and distinguished visitors from the industry and front line academic and research institutes of the country and abroad. The core faculty itself comprises 37 teaching personnel. 

The basic objective of the University shall be to organize undergraduate courses of study in Engineering and Technology, especially in emerging areas. The university now affiliates 160 institutions spread over 15 districts of the state of West Bengal. Postgraduate study is being carried out in 30 of them and research is being carried out for the grooming of scientists, engineers and technologists. We have now intake capacity of about 3000 students at post graduate level. In this venture our affiliates are our cherished partners. We continuously seel new partners in excellence be it industry or other institutions of higher learning. The University has intimate and collaborative linkages with national and International research institutes, University and the industries. 

The affiliated collges enjoy financial autonomy from beginning. They also enjoy substantial autonomy in academic matters. They can suggest establishment of elective papers, frame their syllabus and get it ratified by the University Academic Council at UG level. 

The University besides being supported by the State Government and central grant giving agencies, organizes programs to generate as much as 90% of its own resources. A number of our courses offered at the UG level are now accrediated by NBA. By the end of this academic session this number is expected to go up substantially.
