26th June 2018, New Delhi: Established with a vision to bring about innovation in higher education and learning in emerging areas of the knowledge society, the not-for-profit NIIT University (NU), offers Integrated M.Sc Programme In Computer Science for biology students with specializations in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Big Data/Data Sciences, Cyber Security, Mobile Technologies & Applications and Cloud Computing.

The four-year Integrated M.Sc. program in Computer Science at NU for the biology students provides an overview of computing, an understanding of the concepts, principles, and skills in their application, extension and a practical experience in computing, as applied to biology. The program is designed for students who have opted for Physics, Chemistry, and Biology without Mathematics in Class XI and XII, and who wish to pursue a career in computer science.

To enable students to cope with the rigor of the computer science discipline which rests heavily on mathematics, NU has uniquely designed this course with a bridge program in mathematics. Students who choose biology-related concentration areas such as Bioinformatics and Computational Biology can work in both IT and Biotechnology, Pharma, Healthcare and allied companies in cross-functional roles such as Bioinformatics Analyst and Computational Biologist.

The program has industry linked curriculum which can be customized up to 31% by students through specializations, electives, and projects. NU also offers students an opportunity to transfer learnings from the classroom to the industry workplace for 6 months through Industry Practice in the final semester of the program. It also enables students to sit along with B. Tech CSE students during the placements. 

According to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), over 13.36 lakh candidates applied for NEET 2018. The total number of seats in MBBS and BDS institutes across the country stands at 60,000. Securing a seat in a medical or dental college is becoming tougher every year. To this end, NU has designed this integrated master’s programme for biology students that has been clubbed with computer science for the students looking for careers in the related field.

Speaking on the occasion, Prof V S Rao, President, NU said, “There are a host of opportunities available to biology students today apart from medical and dental courses. Students who opted for biology can today aspire for challenging careers even in the IT & ITES industry along with new and exciting opportunities in pharma and healthcare sectors. Towards this, NU offers Integrated M.Sc. program in Computer Science that is in sync with the current industry requirements and provides a practical experience in computing, as applied to biology.”

M.Sc students have the opportunity to participate in R&D projects in the sixth semester as per the curriculum. Those interested can also undertake projects under faculty guidance during the summer breaks. Also, the Industry Practice in the last semester can be done in an R&D organization for those with a research bent of mind. Students are also encouraged to publish and present research papers at international conferences and journals. Conceptualized as an institution of excellence, NU provides exceptional education based on the Four Core Principles that make learning Industry-linked, Technology-based, Research-driven and Seamless. NU is well poised for meeting the emerging needs of the knowledge economy through its focus on building strong industry linkages and a research-oriented approach.
