Biological Sciences and Bioengineering
Biological Sciences and Bioengineering (BSBE) is a fusion of biology and other basic engineering sciences. It is the application of concepts and methods of biology and other sciences. Biological engineering uses primarily the rapidly developing body of knowledge to study and advance applications of living organisms. No prerequisite of biology at school level is insisted upon for admission to this program. Goal of this program is to prepare students for globally competitive fields of Life Science, Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, industry, academia and research. Students of this program would find unique opportunities of employment and research in the areas of biomedical engineering, drug design, bioinformatics, biotechnology, nano-biotechnology, genomics etc. At undergraduate level from second year students take foundation and elective courses in basic biology and bioengineering topics, besides developing their interest and excitement in biological experimentations and discoveries.
Core subjects – The core subjects of Biological Sciences and Bioengineering are as follows:
