Bsc Biochemistry course was started during the academic year 1998-99 as a self financing course, with Nutrition and Chemistry as complementary subjects. The first batch begins with an intake of 20 students. So far, 13 batches of students have successfully completed their UG course. The course was approved in 2013. Ever since its launch, the department has been securing top ranks in exams conducted by the University. The discipline of Biochemistry follows CBCS syllabus and holds seminars and workshops at regular intervals. The department has a well equipped lab and a rich library which offers students access to as many as 700 scholastic books. It is with immense pleasure that we acknowledge the fact that over the years, dozens of students have passed out of this prestigious department and reached enviable heights making the institution proud.
