Training the future Scientific Entrepreneurs
Welcome to our new PG-Diploma program in "Scientific Entrepreneurship"
Overview: There will be two parts in this program listed below that are distributed over a period of 2-2.5 years in a semester-wise pattern. The duration depends on your eligibility.
1. Scientist training: This part contains an intensive laboratory-based scientific training such that the trainees can be independent researchers upon completion of this training.
2. Entrepreneurship training: This part contains a management boot camp along with all the details needed to start a company.
Details: The student must come up with an idea by the end of the first part based on which, a start-up company will be setup. At the end of the second part of the program, the student will be in a position to manage this company independently with help from TCABS-E. If a student fails in this program, he/she can still complete the program with a placement guarantee upon the completion of the PG-Diploma.
Curriculum: The trainees must choose one field of their interest as a core interdisciplinary subject from the following list:
In addition to the core, trainees can choose up to 3 electives of their choice (Click here for electives list!)
If you completed any bachelors degree in scientific disciplines then you can finish this program in 2-2.5 years depending on if you choose to do this program as a full time or part time student.
If you are a final year bachelors degree student, you are eligible for part time program only. Once you complete your bachelors degree then you can continue as a full time student and still finish this program in 2 years.
If you are a first year or second year degree student, you are eligible for part time program only. Once you complete your bachelors degree then you can continue as a full time student and finish this program in 6 months.
Admission: Trainees who complete internship programs from TCABS-E can get direct admission into this program. New applicants without prior internship experience from TCABS-E must go through an entrance exam. (Click here for TCABS-E internship programs). However, applicants who are willing to pay the full fee without any discounts can directly join the program in the "sponsored quota" with full fee payment during the admission.
Fee: Trainees pay 50% of the fee at the time of admission into the first year (NOTE: applicants through the sponsored quota are not eligible for any discounts in the fee). Each year costs Rs. 1 Lakh. However, trainees who complete TCABS-E internship program can get up to 50% discount in the first year depending on their scores and new applicants are eligible for up to 20% discount based on their score in the entrance exam.
Placement assistance: We really love to see our students as the CEOs of their start-up companies! However, upon the student's request, we have a back up plan for them. Students who successfully complete the two-part training in the PG-Diploma program will automatically qualify for placements. These students may be placed in a variety of Biotech./Pharma/Research laboratories in India or abroad depending on the availability of jobs.
