The purpose of introducing project work is to enable the students to apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes, acquired during the entire course, to the solution of specific problems related to practical world of work. It is expected that students will be sent to various organisations at a stretch for 8 weeks and be asked to take up any live problem of the organisation as project work. Students may also be given option to take up entrepreneurial projects and projects related to environment/ ecology and waste management/utilisation. The project identification should be done by the students in consultation with teachers and personnel from the organisations where the student is going to undertake the project activity on the basis of basic principle; “problem needing to immediate solution”. Each teacher should guide 3 – 4 students for project work throughout this activity. The students will have to go through all the steps of problem solving such as defining the problem, analysis of the problem, collection of required information and resources, formulating alternatives, selecting best solution and reduction in practice.

The project work aims at, besides developing problem solving abilities in the students, development of confidence and expertise in a particular field. The student may get training to analyse the problem, use of instruments, use of techniques and orientation of learning experiences towards their applications in the world of work. Some of the suggested projects are given below:


Initiation of a culture and finally production of plant in tissue culture system

These are only some of the suggestive projects, infact, students can totally ignore this list and identify projects with the help of their teachers/personnel from industry/organisation.

Students will be assessed on the basis of the project report and viva voce examination by internal and external examiners on the pattern suggested below:

1. Panctuality and regularity

 15 percent
2. Level/Proficiency of Practical Skills Demonstrated 25 percent
3. Sense of initiative and responsibility 10 percent
4. Interpersonnel skills/Human Relations/ Behaviour during the project work 10 percent
5. Report Writing 25 percent
6. Viva Voce 15 percent

 100 percent

  • Legislations to control environment
  • Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Elements for preparing EIA statement.



Besides finding employment in any organization there is a great scope for the students of post diploma in Biotechnology (Tissue Culture) to get self employed and establish their own units. For this purpose knowledge about feasibility report based on the market research, financial and other institutions which can provide different types of support/assistance to the entrepreneurs and management is very essential. It is proposed to organise an entrepreneurship awareness camp for one week at a stretch for the students toward the end of academic session.


  1. Concept of entrepreneurship, need and development of entrepreneurial attitudes and qualities
  2. Market research and feasibility report – methods for market research and preparation of feasibility report
  3. Basic resources finance, infrastructure, manpower and training, technology and information resources – their sources, prominent procedure and budgeting etc *
  4. Assistance available from District Industries Centres, Commercial Banks, State Financial Corporation, Small Industries Service Institute, Research and Development Laboratories/Organisations and other Financial and Developmental Organisations
  5. Book keeping and material inventory control 6. Quality management, sales and marketing techniques

NOTE: The students should be given at least one exercise for preparation of feasibility report for any product.

* Experts from various organisations/Institutions may be invited to explain the type of facilities available and procedures for availing these facilities from their prospective organisations/institutions
