M.Sc.in Biotechnology

M.Sc.in Biotechnology

Master in Science programme in Biotechnology helps to deliver teaching and training, and is united with demanding practical training in the field of biotechnology using state-of-the art of molecular technologies. This programme will enable the students with practical skill-set, develop capacities and shape their career prospects in Research and development and Science education.

Program Objectives (PO):

The aim of this program is to provide a broad overview of biotechnology, and thus produce graduates with sufficient knowledge and expertise to apply them in basic biosciences research and teaching.
The program has following specific objectives:

  • To provide an intensive and in-depth knowledge to the students in diverse areas of basic biotechnology
  • To impart knowledge and skills necessary to generate recombinant DNA and genetically engineered organisms
  • To provide bioinformatics skills for biological sequence data mining
  • To train the students to take up wide variety of roles like researchers, scientists, and academicians
  • To provide the students hands on training for the technical review and literature search for designing research problems

Eligibility Criteria

Candidate must have passed Graduation in Life Science (Zoology, Botany, Environmental Science, Biochemistry) or equivalent from any recognised University or AICTE recognised Institute/College with minimum aggregate marks of 45% or CGPA of 5.0 for GEN/OBC and 40% marks or CGPA of 4.5 for SC/ST Category.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLO):

The modern biotechnology solutions would not have been possible without understanding the fundamentals of cell function and metabolism. Our M Sc Biotechnology program teaches the implementation and applications of these fundamentals to develop tools and techniques required in diverse areas of biotechnology. The major outcomes of the program are:

  • Graduates will understand the biochemical and molecular nature of the cell.
  • Graduates will be able to apply the principles of cell function in developing solutions for gene manipulation and genome engineering.
  • Graduates will understand the mechanism of how body defends itself against infections and diseases.
  • Graduates will be able to use relevant bioinformatics software and applications in biological sequence data analysis.
  • Graduates will understand the importance of ethical practices in research.
  • Graduates will develop capabilities to pursue research and teaching in biotechnology.
  • Graduates will acquire the skill set to undertake jobs in basic and applied biological sciences.
