Best BSc Program in Biology in India 2017. Parul University, Faculty of Applied Sciences & Research, offers advance knowledge of basic and applied Science. Faculties at Applied Sciences is constantly striving to disseminate basic and applied aspects of Sciences and creating skilled human resources for industrial needs. University is facilitating for widening students' interest in the field of Applied Science by providing range of subjects from Mathematics to Biotechnology and interdisciplinary credit based semester system. The curriculum is designed and approved by academic and industrial experts fulfill the demand for fervent knowledge of theory and practical of the subject to the students. Faculty also offers 2 weeks bridge course prior to commencement of first semester so as to make them aware about the curriculum and grading system of the university. All curriculums at faculty of applied sciences are supported by six months dissertation/industrial training programme in the final semester of their master degree programme to cater the needs of the students. Today is an era of digital information. Research in the science has opened up widening horizons in basic and applied science. Students are constantly encouraged by faculty to get in touch with the current streams of the subjects in form of seminar/presentation/video lecturers/expert sessions etc. With this aspiration in mind, Parul University has established Faculty of Applied Sciences to promote inter-disciplinary studies of science in relation to management and entrepreneurship. The institute offers 5 years integrated and dual degree B. Sc. + M. Sc. Programme in Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Mathematics after passing the 12th standard. Faculty also provides 3 years of exclusive B. Sc. and 2 years M. Sc. programme in Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Mathematics. At the institute, we aspire to produce several eminent, skill oriented human resource to serve industry and academia needs. Focus Our focus will always remain on the basic teaching of subjects, we at Parul University always believe that understanding of subject is the key to be a Master, Expert or Scientist in any field. We also believe that only the teaching will not lead the students to be Master, Expert or Scientist in the field, unless we provide them the practical knowledge. So, we also focus on the practical approach of the subject, after all the Science field relies on the practical approach. After doing this, we still feel that our students should have a Global platform where they can show their talent, exhibit and spread their knowledge. So, our focus will also be there to provide them an appropriate platform in the form of Campus Interviews as a career making opportunity. Teaching Methodology Uniqueness of the Science programme at Parul University will be its teaching methodology. Teaching will be student centric with aim at holistic development of the students. Every subject, every class, every activity and every exercise will be directed to achieve learning outcomes that will nally contribute to the graduate attributes. It is a proven fact that 20% of learning takes place by hearing, 30 % by seeing and 50% by doing things by oneself. Therefore more emphasis will be on experiential learning. Teaching will incorporate Debates, Presentations, Group Discussion, Mock Trials, Seminars, Research paper presentations so that students' critical, analytical reasoning capacities get sharpen. Public speaking and effective communicative English courses are designed in such a manner that each student will get professional help for improving their social and professional presentation skills. Research skill is soul of Science curriculum. Component of dissertation is incorporated in the programme to give impetus to research. Dissertation will not only engage students with the spending hours in laboratory but also aimed towards troubleshooting the results and presenting them to the audience.
