M.Sc. in Life Sciences has been started since June 1982, looking to job prospects in interdisciplinary approach of biological sciences. Post-Graduated students were absorbed at R & D and Q & C of research institutes and Pharmaceutical industries.
Post Graduated students are going absorbed for further career in research and academics. Every year at least one student out of 15-20 students cleared CSIR-UGC-NET.
Industry & research institute placement are positive responses of this course. Course covers applied and basic aspects of Biochemistry, Botany, Microbiology, Zoology and Molecular Biology.
Infrastructure & Facilities
Department consists three functional class rooms, three M.Sc. Laboratories, One research laboratory and proposed one computer, reading cum Library room. For basic practical in biological sciences the procurement of good number of minor equipments and few sophisticated equipment is in process. Besides above facilities, Laboratory facilities and faculty of various department of biological Sciences (Biochemistry, Botany, Chemistry, Microbiology, Statistics & Zoology are conducting theory & practical. Their infrastructures are available for this course.
Presently two full
fledged faculties at Reader level are looking the course. Few eminent faculties
