About the Programme
B.Tech. in Stem Cell & Tissue Engineering is a four-year undergraduate programme that provides extensive training in the science and practice of tissue engineering in all aspects from theoretical, to testing and clinical application. The programme targets those students that wish to pursue a career in biomedical or life sciences.
The curriculum of this programme is designed in such a way so that students get deep insights into the theoretical as well as experimental aspects of the stem cell and tissue engineering with the help of industry experts and potential employers. Additionally, the students also learn about laboratory management programs and various ethical issues that concern stem cell and tissue engineering research.
The aim of this programme is to prepare students to build up their research acumen by doing individualised projects using different types of stem cell experimental approaches so that they can readily integrate into the scientific workforce in stem cell industry and meet the needs of highly qualified technical and managerial personnel.
After completion of the course, students can opt their careers as research scientists and corporate professionals in universities, hospitals etc.
