This course of Integrated Basic Sciences was initiated in the year 2013 under Innovative and Contemporary Programme. The syllabus of the course is designed on the patterns of IISER and it’s a five year Integrated programme with the option to exit after three years with a graduation degree. This course encompasses different disciplines from biological sciences to mathematical sciences as the foundation with diversification from the third year in their field of specialization. This basis in also there in the New Education Policy.
Objectives of B.Sc./ M.Sc. Basic Science programme: The courses offered in the Integrated UG, PG programme at Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar Central University, Lucknow form part of a comprehensive programme that will enable the students to understand the basic laws of nature and develop necessary skills to apply them to any desired area or discipline. The program is planned as a student centric collaborative learning. Students get trained for a career in basic sciences or any related applied science or technology.
General Pattern The courses offered during the first two years (Semesters I to IV) are meant as basic and introductory courses in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. These are common and mandatory for all students. They include four theory courses and three lab courses from each stream. These courses are meant to give a flavor of the various approaches and analyses and to prepare the students for advanced courses in later years of study. In addition, there will be Interdisciplinary Courses for computational skills and mathematical methods as well as Trans-disciplinary Courses on Scientific Inquiry and Conceptual Inquiry. In the third and fourth years (Semesters V-VIII), students have the freedom to choose advanced courses based on their interest and inclination. The courses offered in the first two years would help them to make an informed judgment to determine their real interest and their aptitude for a given subject. The fifth year will be devoted to a thesis by research, which completes the requirements of the program. Credits and Coursework Every student has to register for approximately 24 credits in a semester. During Semesters I-IV, she/he has to register for all the courses offered. During Semester V-VIII, she/he can register for up to 30 credits per semester, the minimum being 24. Each credit earned requires 4 hours of study per week.
Semester IX-X During the final two semesters of the program, students do an extended project for six credits that result in the M.Sc. thesis.
