Board of Studies
As per the University Policy, Board of Studies (BoS) recommends the Curriculum for each and every program. The BoS members are appointed for a period of 3 years. 50% of the members are well known industrialists, consultants or experts in the field and the other 50% are senior academicians. Students from each Program are also part of BoS as special invitees. BoS Members formulate and review syllabus and internship programs every six months which addresses employability quotient. The idea is to create the curriculum in such a way that it reduces the gap in supply-demand-employability equation. The curriculum includes activities that promotes social responsibility and civic engagement, and is delivered in a unique pedagogy.
Highest qualification of most of the Faculty Members is Ph.D. and many have completed their Post-Doctoral Research from reputed Institutes of India and abroad. Faculty members are well experienced and active in research activities and publishing their research finding in national and international journals. Faculty Members are engaged in Research and Industry Projects funded by Government and Industries like Gujarat State Biotechnology Mission, Govt. of Gujarat (GSBTM) and Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited (GSFC Ltd.). Recently School of Science, succeeded to fetch a major research grant of rupees 43 lakhs under the research support scheme of the GSBTM to work on pathogenesis of Breast Cancer progression and possible therapeutic options. The study is likely to enhance the knowledge of potential role of cancer stem cell and miRs role in the etiopathogenesis of Breast cancer progression and metastasis which is most common disorder of women of all age after puberty and especially in India.
