Our M.Sc. in Biotechnology program is designed to provide students a solid foundation in both theoretical and practical aspects of biotechnology. The program includes a range of core and elective courses covering topics such as molecular biology, genetic engineering, bioinformatics, cell culture, and bioprocess engineering. In addition, students will have the opportunity to undertake a research project in their area of interest, under the supervision of a faculty member.

Program Educational Objectives (peo’s)

  • PEO1
    The objective of Biotechnology is to equip the students to apply knowledge of molecular mechanisms of cellular processes in living systems including microbes, plants, and higher-order organisms to applied aspects.
  • PEO2
    The laboratory training along with theory is included to prepare them for careers in the industry, agriculture, and applied research where the biological system is increasingly employed.
  • PEO3
    Basics and current updates in the areas of Industrial Biotechnology, Fermentation Technology, Agriculture & Environmental Biotechnology are included to train the students and also sensitize them to the scope for research
  • PEO4
    The Masters in Biotechnology Programme will address the increasing need for skilled scientific manpower with an understanding of research ethics involving animals and humans to contribute to the application, advancement, and impartment of knowledge in the field of biotechnology globally.
  • PEO5
    Produce students who can assume professional leadership roles.

Program Outcomes (PO’s)

  • PO1
    Industry applications of better understanding of the key principles of biochemical functioning at an advanced level. Better awareness of the major issues at the forefront of the discipline, will possess an in-depth understanding of the area of biochemistry chosen for research emphasis.
  • PO2
    An ability to conduct experiments, as well as to analyze data, and understood the basic concepts, fundamental principles, and scientific theories related to various scientific phenomena and their relevancies in the day-to-day life
  • PO3
    An ability to acquire the skills in handling scientific instruments, planning and performing in laboratory experiments to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability in biotechnology.
  • PO4
    students will demonstrate engagement in the biotechnology discipline through involvement in research or internship activities and outreach or mentoring activities specific to biotechnology.
  • PO5
    An ability to analyze the given scientific data critically and systematically and the ability to draw the objective conclusions
  • PO6
    Students will acquire and demonstrate competency in laboratory safety and in routine and specialized biotechnological laboratory skills applicable to biotechnology research or clinical methods, including accurately reporting observations and analysis. Use modern Botanical techniques and advanced equipment.
  • PO7
    An ability to generate creative thinking (divergently and convergent) to propose novel ideas in explaining facts and figures or providing new solutions to problems.
