Welcome to School of Biology at MIT-WPU! We offer masters program in Biotechnology and Ph.D. program in core and interdisciplinary areas of Life sciences. Our courses are intended to develop an insight into molecular and cellular basis of life and its applications in health, medicine, sustainable biotechnologies, preparing a student for a career in research or industry. World Economic Forum has identified healthcare as one of the top 10 Global Challenges for 2030 and there is a growing demand for specialists in this field. At School of Biology, students advance professionally by gaining knowledge and practical skills through interdisciplinary approach with increasing responsibilities in Biotechnology industry, Research and Academia.
In recent years, translation of biotechnology into socio economic development has been realized due to the development of products, processes and services in healthcare, medicine, agriculture, veterinary, environment, energy and other sectors. Considering this, we offer a truly interdisciplinary program and courses in biotechnology encompassing fundamental to futuristic subjects. Besides this school also provides courses on entrepreneurship and innovation in biosciences and biotechnology.
Faculty at the School of Biology are actively involved in the translational research in the healthcare domain. One of the major focus has been on developing bioimaging and diagnostic tools for cancer and infectious diseases.
After completing the comprehensive learning at the school, students and research scholars are well poised to pursue careers in industry, research and academia and in the areas of biotechnology, interdisciplinary areas of bioscience, bioengineering.
