The Path of Applied Sciences

The Path of Applied Sciences

There does not exist a category of science to which one can give the name applied science. There are science and the applications of science, bound together as the fruit of the tree which bears it - Louis Pasteur

Scientific Information or knowledge gained in basic science when amalgamated with practical endeavours gives rise to applied sciences. Applied sciences is the practical application of basic or natural science with the help of technology. 
At REVA School of Applied Sciences, we offer programmes in Biological Sciences, Physical and Chemical Science domains. We provide knowledge and skillsets required to equip students to cater to industry sectors, research laboratories and educational institutions. Our well-qualified faculties, digital classrooms, well-equipped academic laboratories, and Center of Excellence centres facilitates an interactive and collaborative environment to enrich their academic and professional careers. 

To keep pace with industry demand and requirement, the Department of Biotechnology at the school is proud to introduce two new PG programmes and one UG programme for the academic year 2021-22. We are offering B.Sc. (Chemistry, Microbiology and Genetics), M.Sc. Microbial Technology and M.Sc Bioinformatics.

The PG curriculum is designed in collaboration with reputed industries and research organization to make it industry-oriented in the true sense. 
1.     M.Sc. Microbial Technology Program:
