Post-Graduate Studies (PGS) Center maintains the Post Graduate (Biotechnology) Studies. The Center keeps the individual files of PG students. The Center is responsible for checking if students have completed all the requirements for the degree. Only after that, they are recommended for degree awards. A crosscheck between The faculty Dean Office and the Center then ensures the quality of the degree award.
