B.Sc. Honours (with Research) in Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a field of applied biology that involves the use of living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering, technology, medicine, and other fields requiring bio-products. Biotechnology also utilizes these products for manufacturing purposes.

The Integrated M.Sc. program in Biotechnology offers an one time solution to students seeking specialization in the field of Biotechnology. This program also offer an option to only earn BSc Degree in Biotechnology if a student wants to exit from the program after 3 years of successfully qualifying the required credits of the 3 year course. Those students who will continue after 3 years of successful completion to additional 2 years will get specialization in Industrial Biotechnology/ Marine Biotechnology/ Medical Biotechnology.
