B.Sc. (Honours) BIO MEDICAL SCIENCE


The B.Sc. (Honours) Biomedical Science course is introduced from the year 2017-18, under the faculty of Biological Sciences as per the curriculum prescribed by the University Grants Commission (UGC), Govt. of India. Nitte (deemed to be University) is the first in Karnataka to offer this unique course, designed to provide wider career options and increased employability to the students. In CBCS, the major change is a shift from the traditional marking system to a grading system. It provides an opportunity for the students to choose from the prescribed courses comprising core, elective (generic and discipline specific) or skill based courses according to their learning needs, interests, and aptitude. Biomedical Science is an interdisciplinary course that involves the study of human health and disease. In the first year, the core courses enable the students to have a glimpse on the introductory subjects such as chemistry relevant to biology, cell biology, basic building units of an organism, and coordinated functioning of the organ systems. In the second year, the students would build on what they have learnt in the first year and the subjects are more advanced and relevant to the field of biomedicine such as clinical biochemistry, medical microbiology, fundamentals of immunology, molecular biology, and biotechnology. In addition, the students will get hands-on training on the tools used in medical lab techniques, epidemiology, forensic science, and modern biology under the skill enhancement courses. The third year will have subjects that are highly specialized including courses like pharmacology, toxicology, cancer biology, human genetics, biophysics, as part of the discipline specific electives. The most unique feature in B.Sc. (honours) Biomedical Science is the provision of a project work/dissertation that a student can opt for in lieu of a discipline specific elective paper in the last semester. The introduction of the Research Component at UG level provides a perfect platform for a career in advanced research and development.
