1. Taught Programmes
The School offers two taught programmes
1. Bachelorís Degree in Biotechnology
2. Masterís Degree in Biotechnology.
Both these programmes are full time and normally extend for 12
months. The Bachelorís degree course is a three year course and each
year is followed by an annual exam.
The masterís degree follows a semester pattern. There are four
semesters. The first three semesters consist of two theory papers
and practicals. The fourth semester is free for experimental
The School is now recognized by the RTM Nagpur University for
Doctoral Research in Biochemistry. Additionally, the staff of the
School is recognized by the University as supervisor for Ph. D. in
Biotechnology. As a result, for the first time in the history of the
School, we are offering research programme leading to Ph. D. in
B. Sc. with Biotechnology
: 40 seats
M. Sc. Biotechnology

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.
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
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.
