A high premium is placed on research and innovation. Our faculty ensures a strong foundation of concepts among students and guides them through a variety of innovations. Here are a few of the steps we take out of our way for our students:
Tie-ins with industry giants such as Hyderabad Central University, A.P Forensic Sciences, Dr. Reddy’s Research Laboratory, ICRISAT etc. allow our students to work with these institutions for the entirety of their final semesters.
Our world-class infrastructure is of a high enough quality for our faculty to conduct research in. Apart from a plethora of laboratories, we also have an entire ecosystem of flora for our students to utilize.
An elective titled “Medical Lab Technology” allows students to specialize in the medical aspects of bio-technology while bolstering their credits.
With our constantly updated syllabus and our highly interactive course, students are constantly challenged to do one better. A lot of our alumni are big names in the field of research and academia.
