This activity is being carried out since 2013.

NIUS Programme
Two students from the F.Y.B.Sc. Microbiology are sent for a week for ‘National Initiative on Undergraduate Science (NIUS) Programme in Biology’ conducted by Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education. The students are oriented to experimental and theoretical concepts in Biology and students are selected for research projects at HBCSE.

Academic Visits and Industrial Visits
The T.Y.B.Sc. students visit ACTREC, NMIMS Institute and Plant Tissue Culture laboratory (Jhunjhunwala College, Mumbai) & Animal Tissue Culture Laboratory (Bayview Research Laboratory, Mumbai) as a part of their curriculum. The students are oriented towards ongoing research in these fields and their applications. The department has taken the students on Industrial Visits to various places like Goa, Jaipur, Udaipur, Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Hyderabad etc.

Social Responsibility:

  • Analysis of the water sample from Charni Road station (Potability test)
  • ‘MICROWORLD’ A two day workshop for high school students of Mumbai

Through interactive teaching methodology involving film, music, photojournalism, poetry writing, digital media, seminar and presentations, we attempt to expose students to varied experiences and cultures, sensitizing their understanding and appreciation of society and the environment. We seek to develop, through the teaching of Language and Literature, critical thinking and an ability to communicate effectively.

career-oriented T.Y.B.A. papers of Popular Culture and Film & Literature prepare students for jobs in Film, Advertising and the New Digital Media.

The Master class series, started over 8 years ago in collaboration with K.C. College and PNP College, offers students the opportunity to interact with experts from the advertising and film industry as also from Journalism and academia in order to learn from their expertise.
