Programme Overview

Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Biotechnology is one of the most popular postgraduate programmes in India. The course is the intersection of two broad subjects- Biology and Technology. Biotechnology will result only from integration of multiplicity of scientific disciplines and technologies, including microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, chemistry, chemical and process engineering, and metabolic engineering. As a merger of science and business, biotechnology demands a multi-disciplinary workforce skilled in basic-research, product development, regulatory affairs, technology transfer and commercialization. M.Sc. in Biotechnology is a 2-year postgraduate course divided into four semesters that provides detailed knowledge of the bi-molecular and cellular activities and be informed about the different technologies to study them. The programme teaches students about the application of biology and bioprocess in engineering, medicine, and technology where bio-products are needed. Biotechnology postgraduates invite several high-paying job opportunities across the country. The sector is ever evolving and after completing the course, one can become a research scientist, Biotech analysts and specialists in their respective fields.
