M. Sc. Plant Biotechnology

Course Duration: 2 years
Affiliation: Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University
Eligibility: Life Science Graduate (Biotechnology/Botany/Agriculture/Agri-Biotech/Genetics/Microbiology/Horticulture) and HSC Science with minimum 50% marks (45% for Reserved Category)

Life Science graduates seeking to further enhance their academic career may enrol in the 2-year Postgraduate programme in Plant Biotechnology. This branch of biotechnology forms the leading edge of plant sciences and biotechnology. Students are introduced to advanced techniques for the manipulation of plant sources to produce commercial applications. An interdisciplinary approach provides our students with an intimate understanding of subjects such as crop physiology, plant genetics, plant culture and plant protection. Graduates from this programme will have a working knowledge of plant manipulation techniques, finding employment in the food and agricultural industry, research laboratories, academic institutions and government organisations. Some graduates may seek to further their academic career by seeking admission to doctoral programs in allied fields of study.
