M.Sc. in Biotechnology is a two-year postgraduate degree programme in the field of science that has recently become one of the most popular science subjects among students. A Master of Biotechnology degree principally trains the candidates for research and laboratory work. Additionally, it is an interdisciplinary program that allows the candidates to explore new frontiers in science and technology. The main focus of M.Sc. Biotechnology program of Rayat-Bahra University is to provide exceptional courses or curriculum serving students with strong vocational and professional skills development. The program includes the advanced and innovative applications of scientific technology in biological systems and human science. Besides, the program is as an interdisciplinary program that involves a combined study of techniques and theories of Animal Biotechnology, Plant Biotechnology, Medicinal Biotechnology, Industrial Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Biomedicine, Genetic Engineering, Agricultural Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Applied Microbiology, and Bioprocess Technology and other associated branches of science. As biotechnology is about the usage of biological and biochemical processes for producing new compounds, the post graduate program in the field endeavours to impart expertise related to synthetic biology and molecular cell biology, so that the students are able to understand the cores of biotechnology. Along with strengthening the theoretical aspects, candidates will also be required to dedicate sufficient period of progression in research practices. Further, M.Sc. Biotechnology is a research-oriented subject that amalgamates the disciplines of Biology and Technology. It is one of the fastest-growing divisions in India and is predictable to perceive development in the coming years.
