Five-Year Integrated M. Sc. Programme in Biotechnology
The Biotechnology landscape today is marked by complexity and change, thinning new drug discovery, patents, generics and competitiveness. In today’s fast developing technology growing industrialization and modernization, Biotechnology holds a prominent place as few professions do. Biotechnology will continue to remain one of the prospective professions. Biotechnology student require special kind of interest and aptitude to be successful. Commercial potential of Biotechnology is immense, since the scope of its activities covers the entire spectrum of human life and it draws on the capabilities and resources of the entire biological world and even beyond. Biotechnology is an important thrust area in Science and Technology. Five-year integrated program in Biotechnology at CUTN is an Interdisciplinary Science that relies on Biology. Students will successfully learn fundamentals of Biology, and other subjects such as Mathematics, and Chemistry during the first year. From second year onwards, frontier areas such as Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Cell Biology, Microbiology, Immunology, Genetic Engineering, Bioinformatics, etc. will be introduced. At their final semester, students will be given a project by that they can have collaboration with both industry and reputed institutes across India. Manned by a pool of skilled professors, students will be trained on how to design experiments, data analysis and writing a manuscript. Their project work will be published in reputed journals in the field, by that they can avail international research opportunities at ease. Students will be motivated and guided for higher studies. They will also be informed about the competitive exams in their field of study. At the end when a Biotechnology student winds up the degree, the student’s capabilities and experience will span across in all verticals. The main objective of the course is to train the students in theory as well as hands on experience in state-of-art techniques in Biotechnology so at the end they will be invincible in this fast developing competitive global scenario.
