How we do it ?
The School of Biosciences provides an outstanding environment for students to learn and explore new frontiers in science and technology. We focus on high quality education and enhancement of personal talent and skills. The student community is encouraged to conduct independent research with guidance from highly qualified and dedicated team of faculty members and publish their work in peer reviewed indexed journals. The college in itself publishes the peer reviewed Journal of Science, Technology and Management to encourage student and faculty publications. The students are made industry-ready with strong practical training and research experience instilling confidence to face global requirements. The spirit of self-reliance and self-employment through entrepreneurship encouragement is also instigated in the students. The students are also provided with soft-skill training, placement support and aptitude training to facilitate this process. The best training is through experiential sessions provided with the help of established experts and scientists through International and National conferences and seminars.
