Bechelor Degree : 3 years (Full Time)

Aims and Objectives

Biochemistry is a major growth industry world wide. Every day new exciting developments take place in the various fields like biotechnolgy, genetic engineering microbiology, medicine, agriculture, horticulture and forensic science. We offer best educational environment and relevant skills to meet the recent opportunities of developing world.

To promote quality in Biochemistry education and training in the North Gujarat region of the state.

To create awareness about the benefits & perceived risks of Biochemistry intervention in (i) sustainable development and utilization of nature recourses (ii) Human animals, plant health and (iii) environmental protection.

To assist students to fashion their career in the field of Biochemistry.
