M.Sc. Biotechnology (CBCS)






    2 Years

B.Sc Nursing College in Mangalore


M.Sc. Biotechnology (CBCS) is introduced under the faculty of Biological Sciences. The course is designed to provide wider career options and increased employability of 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.

Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary course that involves use of biological systems in product development. The principal aim of this program is to introduce the students to classical and modern concepts in biology and its applications in research. This program provides a hands on basic and comprehensive grounding in multidisciplinary science of modern and classical biomedical science. The most unique feature in M.Sc. Biotechnology is the year long project work/dissertation that a student can undertake from the third semester along with course-work. The final semester is dedicated to the project work. The project work provides a strong foundation for a career in innovation and advanced research competency.
