News Hour, an interactive portal, is providing a full course catalog of Biotechnics, an undergraduate biotechnology course in the United States, and a Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology course for undergraduate students in India.
Students who have taken the Biotechenic courses for two or more years can also take an online course, which is the same for both courses.
This course has been launched to help students who are considering the Biotechnology Bachelors degree.
The course is taught by Dr Sushil Gupta, a professor in the Department of Biotechnology and Biotechnology Research at the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai.
He is also a lecturer in the Bio-Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Pennsylvania.
The courses have been developed by a partnership between the Centre for Advanced Manufacturing (CAMP) and the Indian Academy of Science (IAS), a joint venture of the US and India, as well as the Department for Science Education, Science and Technology (DESET), a division of the National Institute of Science Education (NISER).
Students have been asked to take an introductory biotechnology class that is designed to prepare them for the course, in which they will learn about basic concepts of biotechnology.
It will cover topics such as the biological functions of genes, proteins and viruses, as they relate to the environment and to human health and the environment, Gupta said.
“It is intended to help people to gain the knowledge required for an appropriate career path,” Gupta added.
The courses are aimed at students who have been taking the biotechnology Baccalaureate course, where students take classes for a semester or longer, and are interested in taking a Baccalaurate course.
The Biotechanics course is a three-year program.
The students who take the biotechanic Baccaly course, the biotech Baccalian course and the Biosechnics course will be able to take the Baccalam courses, Gupta added, adding that the courses will also be offered for those who want to become scientists or engineers.
