The curriculum is designed based on Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), Program Outcomes (POs) and also adopting the guidelines of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). The curriculum and syllabi are discussed in Curriculum Development Cell (CDC) meetings along with the student representatives. The recommendations of CDC are presented in the Board of Studies (BoS) comprising of experts from premier institutes, industries and alumni for scrutiny. The recommendations of BoS are placed in Academic Council (AC) / Board of Management (BoM) for approval. Approved curriculum and syllabi are implemented and documented as Academic Hand Books.
The department ensures adherence to the guidelines received from statutory regulatory bodies like UGC, AICTE on credit distribution for PG curriculum, while developing and/or restructuring it time to time. The standard of the Course content are ensured through mapping of the syllabus with IITs, NITs and other premier institutions at National and International level during the revision to include recent technologies and developments in biotechnology. The students have exposure to recent technologies and developments like Artificial Intelligence in Biotechnology. Involvement of industrial experts in BoS, feedback from alumni, formal and informal discussions with stakeholders ensures bridging any gap between the curriculum and requirement of industries and employers.
An open elective Course, English for Research Paper Writing (18EN301) is included with the aim of improving the scientific/research paper writing skills in students. Professional elective Courses are identified in order to improve the knowledge in recent trending technologies. This helps students to focus on research projects in these fields.
The department supports students to pursue projects in international Institutions through The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) and provides opportunities for hands-on training in advanced technologies. Overall, the quality of the Program and curriculum is maintained on par with premier institutions to enable the students to meet the global demands.
