What to Expect Once you Join A Programme
While you will find that you have utter freedom to do things in the mode that suits you best, the coursework will be intensive and you will be put through an intensive practical learning. Once you join the School, you will find that the way we do practicals is entirely different from the way most institutions do it.

ē Training
The M. Sc. Students are encouraged to undergo exhaustive training courses lasting one to two months in reputed research laboratories all over India. The School has signed MOUs for this purpose with several laboratories.
The B. Sc. students too are encouraged to undergo short training sessions at different institutes. In fact, some of our best B. Sc. students have been successful at obtaining training at the very best of the Indian Science Institutes such as the IISc., Bangalore, NCBS, Bangalore, NCCS, Pune etc.

ē Experimental Projects
We view the experimental projects conducted by M. Sc. students as independent research problems. Indeed, several of these projects have resulted in developing technologies for the industry and one such technology has actually been transferred to the industry. This is enough to show the utmost seriousness with which we make the students do the project.

B. Sc. students are not required by the University to carry out project work. However, it is our practice that they too engage themselves in project work before they pass out of the institution.
