B.Sc Degree Course (Hons) in Genetics

DURATION

DURATION : Six Semesters (Three Years)

Total Credit : 140 Credits

COURSE STRUCTURE

  • 1. In view of the increasing demand for training manpower in the area of Genetics, Molecular Biology, Genetic Medicine and Biotechnology, it was consensus of the committee (Faculties & experts) that this course should be broad based and should be able to give a good insight into modern biology and important component of hands-on training to the students. Thus by nature it will be an interdisciplinary course.
  • 2. a) For admission, students from Science stream with 10+2 (HS exam) or equivalent, ISC, CBSE exam will be eligible.
  • b. Admission will be through selection test CET (Common Entrance Examination) and also on the basis of the merit.
  • c. The number of students for this course to be admitted this year will be 30.
  • 3.The fee structure should be on no grant basis as applicable to technical courses.
