In
the second year, the student is mostly required to work in a research laboratory under the supervision of a research guide in an area of mutual scientific interest, and submits a Master’s dissertation at the end of the 4th semester. Based on the performance review of the student, he/she may be permitted to continue in the programme for pursuing the PhD thesis research in the same laboratory. At this stage, the student can also exercise his/her choice to exit the programme with a Master’s degree on satisfactory completion of the course and dissertation requirements.
The overall course curriculum provides an inter-disciplinary perspective of modern biotechnology with significant emphasis on laboratory training. On completion of the coursework, the student is required to work on his/her Master’s dissertation followed by PhD thesis.
