Biotech Internships

Despite the dominance of subjects like mathematics, physics, and computer science in the field of engineering, the biochemical and biotechnology sector has witnessed some drastic advances. However, there is no denying that a major part of the field is still unexplored and there is a lot of untapped potential, especially in a country like ours. It has been commonly observed that due to lack of exposure and awareness regarding available opportunities, most of the students take detours and end up in a completely different work environment which in the first place, they never opted for. Core Internships, thus play a crucial role as they enable students to stay well versed with the recent developments in the field. Since it is a field with large interdisciplinary relations, there is a wide range of subfields in which students can take up industrial projects or conduct research.
