Sanctioning Agency: Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India
Period of Support: April 2020- March 2023
Sanction order No: BT/HRD/11/06/2020 dated 29/02/2020

The Department of Life Sciences was sanctioned support under the strengthening component of the DBT star college scheme by the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India (Sanction No: BT/HRD/11/06/2020) during April 2020.

Star College Scheme has been initiated by DBT to support colleges and universities offering undergraduate education to improve science teaching across the country. Through the scheme DBT focuses on improving critical thinking and 'hands on' experimental work at undergraduate (college) level in sciences by partnering with colleges with ambition and potential for excellence. The scheme is expected to encourage, more students to take up higher education in science. The scheme provides support for academic and physical infrastructure for achieving excellence in teaching and unique exposure of students to experimental science.

The scheme was implemented during the Academic year 2020-21. All students of BSc Biotechnology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Botany were a part of the skill training. Qualitative improvements due to the scheme includes an increase in the number of hands-on experiments in the practical curricula and the number of student research projects, fortification of laboratory infrastructure, introduction of a methodological training module dubbed ITI, and participation in Science Setu lecture series organised by DBT-Institute for Stem Cell Science and Regenerative Medicine (In stem)

  • To strengthen the academic and physical infrastructure for achieving excellence in teaching and training.
  • To enhance the quality of the learning and teaching process to stimulate original thinking through ‘hands-on’ exposure to experimental work and participation in summer schools.
