M. Sc Animal Biotechnology: The curriculum of the course is a perfect mix of basic and modern aspects of Animal Biotechnology. The course syllabus is tailor-made to train the next generation scientists to pursue research in various aspects of the discipline. The four-semester program contains core courses in first two semesters and applied subjects in the third and fourth semesters. The elective courses, offered in the third and fourth semesters include Infection Biology, Cancer Biology, Aquaculture: Nutraceuticals & Pharmaceutical Applications, Cellular & Molecular Neurosciences, Blood cell development & disease, Vaccinology, Epigenetics & Nuclear Dynamics, Oxidative Stress and Antioxidants in Health & Disease etc. The students are required to take a total of 4 electives, with the freedom to opt for electives offered by other departments of the School. Modular practical courses conducted in the DBT-CREBB funded state-of-art laboratories make the Department of Animal Sciences an academic hub for pursuing teaching and research in various aspects of Animal Biotechnology. The project work, done in the third and fourth semesters for a total period of one year expose students to problem-oriented research work in a well-equipped lab under the supervision of a faculty.
Doctoral Program in Animal Sciences: The program requires the registration of the student under a faculty and is for a minimum of two years upon admission to the program. The program consists of compulsory course work in the first two semesters and a final submission of a thesis based on the experimental work done under an approved topic. Yearly presentation of the work completed is monitored by a Doctoral Committee consisting of three members, including the PhD supervisor. The total duration of the entire program is approximately 4 - 5 years.
