Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does Biomedical Science as a subject deal with?

    Biomedical Science is combination of basic biological and medical sciences, which deals with the topics of interdisciplinary areas to understand the biological principles that govern the functioning & health status of the animal or human body, to discover the mechanisms of disease development and to find an appropriate way to prevent and/or cure a disease by developing advanced diagnostic tools or new therapeutic strategies.

  • How is Biomedical Science different from Biomedical Engineering?

    Biomedical Science is different from Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical Science is concerned mainly with the facts, theories, and in-vitro, or in-vivo models that describe biological and medical phenomena. Whereas biomedical engineering applies the skills and techniques of traditional engineering (e.g., in-silico) in order to solve biological or clinical problems.

  • Which courses can a student pursue after completing M.Sc. in Biomedical Science?

    The course is basically designed to prepare students for a career in academia and industry in order to inculcate the passion and commitments towards research and development. The most logical progression is a Ph.D. program followed by post-doctoral research, however, avenues for openings in academia, research institutes/centers and the industry can be explored by students as well.

  • What are the options available with the students of M. Sc. (Biomedical Science) for higher studies/research?

    Master degree program in Biomedical Science provides students and researchers with an excellent foundation for further higher studies/research in various biomedical fields such as Human Genetics, Biochemistry, Physiology, Molecular Biology, Molecular Diagnostics, Cell Biology, infection Biology, Immunobiology, Pharmacology, Toxicology, Microbiology, Immunonutrition, OMICS Technologies, Systems Biology, Bioinformatics etc. Students are encouraged to complete Master's program in a relevant field followed by Ph.D. program and post-doctoral research.

  • Can student get job immediately after graduation in Biomedical Science program and what are the opportunities?

    The broad analytical, scientific and personal skills gained during Master program in Biomedical Science will equip students for a variety of careers. On successful completion, graduates will be able to work as teaching faculty or researcher in the institution/university, technologists in clinical/research laboratories or in the Bio-Pharmaceutical industry, Health promotion and policy research & implementation, Research and Research infrastructure management, Food technology, etc.

  • Are students exposed to research environment/hands on training on research skill development during M.Sc. (Biomedical Science) program?

    Research is an integral/important part of Biomedical Science program. Students are encouraged to actively involved in the ongoing research projects at various departments to get hands-on training and carryout independent research project under the guidance of experienced faculty as a part of the curriculum, which is facilitated by the university/institute. Students will also get opportunity to develop enhance their skills by exposing or practicing new and/or additional practicals (apart from their regular syllabi), regular seminars/invited or guest lectures from eminent teachers and scientists from multidisciplinary areas, and educational trips to reputed academic institutes and industry, all leading to increasing exposure towards research and innovation.

  • Are students trained in soft skill development-research data analysis and presentation, writing research paper and grant proposal etc., during M.Sc. (Biomedical Science) program?

    Yes. Students will be trained in various aspects of academic and research requirements, such as experimental design, research techniques, documentation, analysis & organisation of research data, critical thinking and interpretation of the research data, presentation of research outcome as seminar/webinar at workshops/conferences, reviewing scientific literature, writing project report, research paper and research grant proposal, preparing of experimental protocols/laboratory manuals as well as laboratory instruments.

  • What are the various prerequisites for admission to M.Sc. (Biomedical Science) program?

    Candidate seeking admission to M.Sc. (Biomedical Science) program must have passed bachelor's degree of minimum 3 years duration in life sciences (Biomedical Science / Biotechnology / Molecular Biology / Biochemistry / Microbiology / Botany / Zoology / Genetics / Pharmacology/ Animal Sciences / Home Science / Chemistry with Biological subjects) or passed bachelor degree in BE / B. Tech majoring in biotechnology or Medical / Dental / B. Pharm / B.Sc. Nursing (3 or 4 years) from reputed and recognized University / Board with not less than 50% marks aggregate. Selection of eligible candidates shall be based on the eligibility qualification, marks secured in the entrance test and personal interview to be conducted by Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara University.

  • What other career options are available for the post-graduates in Biomedical Science?

    The post-graduation degree has a significant impact on what a candidate's career will look like, so one can expect to study in-depth about the subject/s that they are interested and will be chosen for further studies leading doctoral degree. Post-graduate programme in Biomedical Science will appeal to those planning a career in biomedical research or related areas as well as graduate-entry careers in industry, management and the public sectors. Generally, a large proportion of biomedical Science graduates choose further study before entering successful academic or industry-based research careers.

  • How to register for admission to M.Sc. (Biomedical Science) in Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara University, Dharwad?
