Bachelor of Science in Genetic engineering


Genes and DNA are some of the most important constituents of a human body. It is said that no matter how similar two human beings are, genetically they have a huge difference. The genetic make up of every human is unique and has some specific characteristics. In order to study these makes ups and specification of genes and other chromosomes, various courses are being offered regarding the study of genetics and DNA. In the same way Bachelor of Science in genetic engineering is offered to those interested in this field.

Under this course one is taught about the various kinds of available characteristic and specifications of the genetic material. Under this course one is taught about the various functions and responses of the genetic material towards various kinds of stimulations made over it. The course also allows the students to make necessary experiments over these genetic materials so as to observe its characteristics in more details.

In order to be eligible for the course, one requires being at least 10 + 2 passed with Biology as one of the main subjects. The passing certificate should be of a well recognized institute and educational board of India.

Course Outlook:

The course duration of this course is 3 years. The 3 years of this course is generally divided in to 3 parts of 1 year each. After every 1 year an examination is held which decides the candidate’s promotion to the next part.

Job Prospects:

The genetic engineering field has got plenty of options in the present era. One can get in to various research institute owned by government and private firms. One can also get in to various institute and research centre. One can also get in to teaching profession after successfully completing this degree.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    My son wants to pursue a career in genetic engineering. He is presently in FYJC Science and wants to know the procedure for it.
    Is MAH-CET required alongwith XII(HSc)? or he can directly get admission only with his XII(HSc) marks?
