Post Graduate Programs
M.Sc. in Bio-Chemistry
About Program: The aim of the two-year postgraduate course in Biochemistry is to develop a scientific aptitude in the students and to motivate them for research in Biochemistry. The course will provide solid foundation for all the students regardless of background and will gain a comprehensive understanding of the principles of Biochemistry to an advanced level, including clinical and research aspects and with the special attention to current development in the discipline. By the end of the course, students gain expertise in the latest biochemical techniques and learn to appreciate the applications of the basic science to the field of modern research.
Graduation in Botany/ Zoology/ Biochemistry/ Biotechnology/ Microbiology/ Biomedical Sciences/ Genetics/ Medicine/ Agriculture/ Life Sciences/ Chemistry/ Pharmacy from any recognized university or equivalent examination with a minimum of 50 % marks in aggregate.
The M.Sc., programme of two years is designed to help all the students to get good quality education in the field of Biochemistry so that they can find employment after their Post Graduation. The ultimate aim is to enable the students to develop an integrated approach for understanding the various life science problems at the molecular level. There are several areas where students of biochemistry can work. For example, pharmaceutical companies, molecular biology research labs, various teaching institutes, medical colleges, etc.
After completion of M.Sc. Biochemistry degree course, the students can attempt to qualify reputed national eligibility examinations, such as CSIR-NET/JRF, DBT-NET/JRF, ICAR-NET/JRF to name a few. Qualifying these examinations can help them enroll for Ph.D. programs in prestigious institutes.
