Master of Science in Biochemistry

MS in Biochemistry is an advanced degree program which aims to prepare students for research and strategic jobs in this field. Owing to the enormous advances made during recent decades, biochemistry has become the milestone of all biological sciences. MS Biochemistry has been designed to meet the needs of well-trained manpower to serve the sectors of health, agriculture, industry and education in the country. The program (MS in Biochemistry) has a minimum of two-year duration (4 Semesters) and includes both course work (24 credit hours) and a research Thesis (6 credit hours). Highly qualified faculty members are actively engaged in research in multiple disciplines like Cancer cell Biology, Molecular Immunology, Animal and Plant cell culture, Drug designing, Genetic engineering, and Molecular Genetics.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The graduates of BECE program are expected to:

  1. Demonstrate competence in civil engineering profession by applying in-depth knowledge and technical skills with global, societal and sustainable perspectives.
