The NMIMS (Deemed-to-be University) has introduced the M.Sc. program in Biological Sciences from August 2012. The salient feature of these programmes is the emphasis being laid on the overall development of laboratory skills of a student coupled with an expansion of his/her knowledge base through an interdisciplinary course work comprising lectures and practicals in the first year of the course and subsequently fine tuning these skills in a particular area of specialization. While the student will have ample opportunity to acquire hands-on training on modern, sophisticated instruments/equipment, he/she will also be able to benefit from the expertise of one or more faculty, wherever needed.
The M.Sc. is a two years course which includes four trimesters and a six month project work.
A total of 10 seats are available for the M.Sc. program in Biological Sciences.
