Course programme

The North Gujarat University offers various courses, Master of Bio-Technology being one of them.


Bio technology is an age old applied technology where micro organisms have been exploited to produce product to enhance human health and human environment.

Bio technology requires fusion of different modern sciences including biological and technological sciences. it encompasses basic understanding fundamental concepts and their application in the area of molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, microbiology, biochemistry, biophysics, bio-processing and computer science etc.

M.Sc. biotechnology is demanding and challenging, course which requires intellectual and dedicated inputs from students as well as teachers. for imparting a useful and rigorous theory and practical training in this subject, it is recommended that biotechnology course shall follow semester System.

The infrastructure faculty must be fulfilled and should be monitored regularly as needed time to time. the proposed course contents have been designed to improve the learning process of the student and to induce interactive teaching programme between student and the teachers.

This is also meant to cater up to date education in theoretical aspects and most relevant and latest training in practical skills.

Further enough scope has been provided in syllabus to modulate teaching programme to accommodate the recent developments in biotechnology and to suit the requirements of the student and the department.(

)The course carriculum is as follows:

Semester Pattern

1.There shall be four theory papers in each semester.
2.Practical in each exercise depends on theory paper. Practical exercise depends on theory syllabus and local available facilities.
3.In each semester candidate will be examined in theory and practical to make total 450 marks per semester.

1.75 marks of each theory paper i.e. total 300 marks per semester.
2.50 marks for each practical. However the total weightage shall be 150 for all four papers per semester.

4.Each theory paper examination will be of two hours duration.
5.Each Practical examination will be of more than four hours duration
6.There shall be one industrial excursion four within first two semester and students are required to submit an excursion report

Details of the Course :

-M.Sc. bio technology will be a full time TWO YEAR course divided in to four semesters.
-Number of students will be restricted to 15 (fifteen) and will be selected for admission through selection criteria i.e. entrance test, group discussion and personal interview.
-Curricula will have inbuilt training facilities at highly specialized laboratories of industries
-Modern state of the art laboratories will be established to provide online practical studies also.
-There will he blend of highly qualified core as well as visiting faculty from various related disciplines.
-This university have established the allied post graduate departments such as life science chemistry, mathematics physics and computer science which would be very helpful to this course
