DBT- STAR COLLEGE

DBT-STAR COLLEGE SCHEME

The STAR college scheme was initiated by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India in 2008 to support colleges and universities offering undergraduate education to improve science teaching across the country. This Scheme was launched for improving critical thinking and encouraging ‘hands on’ experimental science at undergraduate level in basic science subjects. On a larger perspective, the scheme was initiated envisioning that it shall encourage more students to take up higher education in science. Through this scheme the department identifies colleges with potential for excellence and provides support for developing infrastructure for academics and laboratory activities. This support is in turn expected to invigorate teaching and provide unique exposure of students to experimental science.

Support under the strengthening component of the star college scheme of was sanctioned to five science departments of the college; Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics ((Sanction No: BT/HRD/11/09/2020 dated 05/03/2020) during April 2020.
