Postgraduate Programme

  • The syllabus is divided into four semesters. First three semesters have two theory papers and one practical each. A project work is required to be completed in the fourth semester. Each theory paper is divided into five units and all the units carry equal weightage. All papers and practicals are compulsory. Each theory paper carries 75 marks. Each practical carries 100 marks. 200 marks are allotted to a project work to be carried out during the fourth semester. The project is compulsory. A weighted seminar has also to be given in the fourth semester and it carries 50 marks.

  • Number of theory and practical periods : The syllabus is based on 18 theory periods and 16 practical periods per week. Candidates are required to pass separately in theory and practical examination.

  • Study tour: Students of M. Sc. Biotechnology are encouraged to visit some research institutes of national and international repute during the two-year course.

  • Seminars: Every student has to give at least one seminar every year and submit a written summary of the same.

  • Project work : In the fourth semester, 200 marks are allotted to a dissertation/project work. The project is compulsory.

  • Distribution of theory/practical/project marks:
