This course enables the students to take up advanced studies in Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology.

The programme consists of six core papers and two non-credit papers. Students develop professional laboratory skills required to work in the sector through practical exposure in the labs. The teaching also focuses on developing the skills of problem-solving, team working, presentation and communication skills.

In the third semester students are taken on a compulsory educational tour and in the fourth semester they are assigned project work that is undertaken in the industry or research institutes.
