M Sc Programmes 2023-24

(i) Life Sciences and (ii) Chemical Sciences

(Launched from the Acad. Year 2022-23)

The Institute offers new and exciting opportunities to Bachelor’s degree holders with a keen sense of scientific enquiry for pursuing advanced research in frontier areas of Life and Chemical Sciences leading to an M Sc degree. These 2 years Master’s degree programs consist of foundational and flexible coursework and hands-on laboratory training. The design is aimed to develop experimental skills in advanced techniques for research, leading to an independent thesis research project. Students enrolled in the M Sc programs can personalize their coursework and research projects. Details of the eligibility criteria and admission processes are described below.
