Integrated M.Sc in Biotechnology & Bioinformatics

5

12th standard pass with science subjects and at least 60% marks (to be adjusted).

Biotechnology is a broad scientific discipline where biological sciences combine with engineering.  Biotechnology exploits cellular and biological processes to develop new technologies, as well as products usable in different fields like research, agriculture, industry, health care, environment, etc.

The 5-year integrated M.Sc programme in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics at The Neotia University covers a wide variety of subjects from biology, physical sciences and engineering disciplines. The carefully designed curriculum, sophisticated laboratory facilities, disciplined research based teaching, opportunity to work on independent in-house projects, and the chance of getting trained in leading biotechnological firms render the students competent to venture into career opportunities either in industry or in academia.

This integrated course is a complete programme to systematically groom a young student just after their school into an academic enthusiast or an industry professional in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics within a span of five years.
