To promote PG MSC (2 years) Programmes. VIT has long since been devoted to providing quality education in various disciplines of Engineering, Science and Technology and has proliferated into frontiers of Research as well.
School of Bio Sciences and Technology (SBST) offer programs in various disciplines of Modern Biology such as M.Sc in Applied Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biomedical Genetics (Genetic Counseling specialization). The School houses excellent infrastructure and well trained faculty members (115 nos). Most of them have pursued Post-Doctoral Fellowship from laboratories in developed countries. The competencies of the faculty in research are endorsed by the quality of research papers and obtaining research projects. There has been a constant inclination in the research publication in the recent years. From 2012 – 2017 faculty have published 1549 research papers in peer reviewed journals with the cumulative impact factor of 2377.
School of Advanced Sciences (SAS) comprises of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics departments. The school offers M.Sc. programmes in Physics, Data Science and Chemistry with an option with specialization in Analytical or Inorganic or Organic or General Chemistry or Pharmaceutical Chemistry. The curriculum keeps abreast of the latest advancements in the respective domains and endeavor’s to develop scientists of high quality. The primary goal is to prepare a new generation of young scientists for the technical and social needs of the 21st century. Syllabi are on par with IITs. The Departments are DST-FIST recognized. The Curriculum for Applied Learning (CAL) adopted presently is benchmarked with top ranking universities
