M.Sc. Botany : Master of Science in Botany

Master of Science in Botany or MSc in Botany is a postgraduate programme which deals with the scientific study of plant life. It is a two-year programme, divided into four semesters which trains students to find lucrative opportunities in both the private and public sector by giving through practical and theoretical knowledge in the field of Botany. NotebooksThe botany degree at Baba Farid Institute of Technology is affiliated to HNB Gharwal Central University.

The study in the branch of botany deals with the overall scientific analysis of the plant life and various other factors involved with it. The botany degree covers a wide range of different scientific topics like algae and fungi including structure, growth, reproduction, metabolism, development, diseases, chemical properties and evolutionary relationships among various taxonomic groups. This course also includes a study of classification, distribution, structure, genetics and ecology. Apart from it, the course also focuses on the vegetation in a specific territory, topographical period or natural surroundings. A Master in Botany mostly deals with lab work and research. The selection of course in the postgraduate degree mostly depends on the field, and the institute one chooses. However few subjects which are related or are fundamental in the course structure include plant environment, plant systematics, formative plant life structures, plant physiology, plant mycology and similar morphology of vascular plants.

Through the M.Sc. botany course at BFIT, we make our students get trained to become intellectual and proficient botanists. Under this course, we enhance students abilities and skills in the application of botany theories and teach them to attain expertise in the life problems which are faced by the industry. We train our students to study plant life along with finding solutions to issues related to plants in various areas, regions or overall in general.
