The course content assumes that faculty members/students have an exposure to CBSE 10th grade Biology and exposure to Physics and Mathematics at 10+2 level. The short term course aims to highlight a wide variety of aspects of modern biology without going into great depth.
This short-term course is divided into three parts. The first part of course will be molecular biology which will bring forth the components building a cell and cellular processes. The second part of the course will be Physical Biology/Biophysics which shall illustrate how one can use Physics and Mathematics to understand various biological systems/processes. The last part shall use a few notable examples to illustrate the engineering perspective with an emphasis on applications.
Faculty members of degree level engineering colleges recognized by AICTE, are eligible to attend the course.
