Why SoLB is your destination for career development in biological sciences

SoLB with its infrastructure of several state of the art labs offers a very interactive and innovative way of teaching. Practical understanding of theories always pave the way for a firm base of our students. Currently we have Molecular Biology lab, Recombinant Technology lab, Bioprocess lab and Plant Biotechnology lab. Additionally this year we have developed three more research labs to perform cutting-edge science in our campus. The new labs are Microbial Genetics lab, Cancer Biology lab and Stem Cell Biology labs addressing the current needs of scientific research. These labs are going to provide a golden opportunity for our graduate and postgraduate students to learn important techniques and building a challenging career. Several professors of SoLB with their strong background in scientific research provide their guidance to our students in shaping their mind to conduct a fruitful research.  

Skill development for industry-ready students

The course structure for several disciplines in SoLB has designed to cater the needs of skilled workers in the bioscience industry. To serve this purpose we have several eminent professors from industry and academia as a member in our Board of studies. Some notable members are Dr. Salavadi Easwaran – Dean, Biocon Academy, Prof. Ramakrishna Sen – HoD, Dept. of Biotechnology, IIT Kharagpur. We also have several courses on innovation, ideation, design & thinking to shape our new minds for innovative creations. These courses will help our students to develop ideas and design their steps to achieve them as a successful commercial product. Further, Adamas University Biotechnology club is offering a platform for our students to materialize their new ideas in the form of products required for betterment of society. The industry internships for students are arranged by our University’s Career Development Cell (CDC) and faculty members. The industry internships are mandatory for course completion.

Achievements of SoLB

The session of 2020-21 proves to be a very successful year for SoLB. Several students of B. Tech Biotechnology qualified GATE exams required to pursue M. Tech degrees in prestigious institutions of India. Among them Anwesha Bose scored GATE All India Rank- 48 becomes a momentary achievement for our school. There are few students from B.Sc. Biotechnology qualify JAM exams conducted by IITs and required to pursue M.Sc. in prestigious institutions of India. The year also marked with very good number of placement of our B. Tech and M.Sc. level students in several reputed companies with attractive salaries. Two professors from Department of Biotechnology and Department of Microbiology receives prestigious research grants from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India.
