Department of Bioscience



The Department of Bioscience offers degrees in B.Sc. & M.Sc. Biotechnology, B.Sc. Microbiology, and M.Sc. Bioinformatics. The Department has been upgraded to award Research Degrees (M.Phil. & Ph.D.) from 2019 onwards in the field of Biotechnology. Faculty members are well qualified with Ph.D. and having strong research profiles proven by their publications, patents, and funded projects. The department has received grants from funding agencies, notably from DBT, ICSSR, AICTE, Indian National Science Academy, and TNSCST, etc.

The Department has well-established and sophisticated laboratory infrastructure, which is strengthened with the financial support provided under the DBT STAR College Scheme by the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India. The department's focus is not only on placing students in niche companies but also on providing effective training in self-development, entrepreneurship, internship employability, and group projects in renowned laboratories. Many scientists and experts in the field of biological sciences from nationally reputed laboratories have regularly visiting and interacting with the students. The department is connected with the iSTEM portal and provides scientific services to students, researchers, and industries. Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) have been signed with both government and private organizations to promote research activities.
