· Single PG department of Biotechnology in Nashik district.

Ø Weaknesses

· Funding for major projects has not yet been availed

Ø Opportunities

· To get recognition as Research Centre.

· To develop more linkages & collaborations with industries and research institutes

Ø Challenges

  • 100% placement of post graduate students is not yet being done.
  • Possible decrease in student strength due to difficulty in placement.

· To get major research projects providing opportunities for PG students to work as research student.

Ø Future Plans

· To publish PG research projects in the form of departmental research bulletin to sensitize UG students towards research.

· To generate research grants through contract research in collaboration with industry.

· To conduct certificate courses for students of life sciences related with basic Biotechnology aspects
