The Department of Life Science was established in the year 2019 under the headship of Prof. G R Naik, follows a strong tradition of combining high-end technology with impactful biology. The department is actively growing with recent hires having excellent research and teaching experience in interdisciplinary subjects from premier institutes. We continue to leverage this integrative approach to yield break-through discoveries. Department is establishing sophisticated research labs and advanced central instrumental facilities supported by Higher Education Funding Agency (HEFA).

       The Department of Life Science offers a highly competitive two-year master’s degree program in the basic and applied areas of animal and plant sciences, and shortly on the verge of introducing PhD program in the next academic year. The entire curriculum is designed to prepare a student for a career in teaching, research organizations and industry. The department emphases in developing scientific and innovative spirit in students, instilling professional ethics and spirit of service to the society at large. Students will not be allotted any branch of specialization in life sciences at the time of admission. The most attractive feature of the M.Sc. program is the freedom given to the students to decide about domain specialization during the 2nd year of their studies. During semester III the students will have the freedom to study subjects of his/her choice under the guidance of a faculty advisor. Another prominent feature of the M.Sc. program is the Dissertation project to be carried out in the 4th semester. The students will be allotted a project at the end of the 3rd semester, which they have to complete in the 4th semester. Additionally, student is free to select an elective subject offered by various department in 2nd and 3rd semester. The students are encouraged to come up with their individual project ideas with an aim to advance their knowledge, critical thinking and hands on training during the course of the program in addition to academic curriculum.
