The department offers a number of courses ranging from ‘discipline specific’ courses to ‘common to all’ courses .The specialized course packages offered to B.E. Biotechnology students enables them to diversify to other areas of biotechnology. The students get hands on training to various techniques form the specially designed lab based courses. Electives drawn from different areas of biology, engineering and technology are tailored to the individual student’s interest. This allows students to explore the interdisciplinary areas of biotechnology to compete better in the demanding world.[/vc_column_text]
College of Biotechnology in the UMS presents its master program of Science in Forensic Biotechnology, this unique specialty in the field of criminal investigation that aims to serve the community and protect the public. This field of study is also characterized by its relation to the forensic crime scenes and law enforcement.
Examination of different types of physical evidences such as body fluids, fingerprints and tire marks are practiced in the course along with the most recently advanced technology in DNA analysis which has been dramatically evolved to be the first assistant to decipher the complexities of crimes and detect the true doer of the action.
Master of Science in forensic biotechnology has been designed to meet the requirements of students who would like to develop their criminal investigative capabilities in its different sections; forensic investigations, law enforcement, collection of different types of evidences and reporting them to the court. This program also prepares the student to gain Forensic Science skills within a holistic crime scene frameworkRead More
