Eligibility Criteria

16 Years of Education, BS (4 years)/MA/MSc (2 years) in the relevant field, (Biochemistry) Min CGPA 2.5/4.0, or minimum 50% marks in annual system. GAT(General)/TUF Entry Test with minimum 50% score

Objective

The program is designed to cater the growing demand for graduate and post graduate scholars in the field of Biochemistry. The program objectives are:

• To provide advanced scientific and technological training in Biochemistry.

• Develop creative and analytical thinking

• To integrate knowledge of the wide area of Biosciences and develop solutions by defining strategies, planning and execution of experiments independently.

• To allow professional integration of the students into the job market in different areas like Education, Forensic Science, Health (Clinical analysis/ Lab.), Industry (Food, Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology) and Environment.

Role and Scope

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Biochemistry is a research-based degree program. It will cater the need of public and private sectors.

This program will provide scientific, technical and laboratory oriented trained man power to demonstrate advanced knowledge in Biochemistry and apply them in solving specific problems in new situations in multidisciplinary contexts. The program will be unique regarding preparing Master holders in two directions: one concerned with scientific research and further studies for PhD; and the other concerned with professional integration in the job market in different areas.
