Trident School of Biotech Sciences (TSBS) under the aegis of Trident Academy of Creative Technology (TACT) is one of the oldest centers of undergraduate and postgraduate Biotechnology education in Odisha, affiliated to Utkal University. However, it is still young, vibrant, and full of enthusiasm and discipline. We are proud to state that TSBS over the years have produced many successful Biotechnologists, who are excelling in various domains of research/teaching and entrepreneurship in India and abroad.
TSBS has launched plans to augment its academic standing by interaction and academic collaboration with its alumnus for the benefit of fresh entrants. The library and laboratories are excellent and being further upgraded with the involvement from researchers, students, staff, and dedicated faculties. We have already initiated academic/research and institutional collaboration with reputed National and International institutes and Universities (Institute of Life Sciences, National Institute of Science Education and Research, and Central Institute of Freshwater Aquaculture in India, Chonnam National University, Soonchunhyang University in Korea, University of Leubeck, Germany, University of Minho, Braga, Portugal, and Inserm, Paris, France) for interactive research, seminars and entrepreneurship development programs. We have constituted an Institutional Ethics Committee under ICMR guidelines and the Institutional Biosafety Committee is under DBT guidelines.
For a holistic growth of students, both intellectually and professionally, we have been proactive in initiating industrial visits and internships. Our M.Sc. students have been selected in National-level institutes such as IARI, IICB, Tata Memorial Cancer Institute, CIFA, CRRI, RGCB, IIT-Guwahati, and IIT-Kharagpur. We intend to expand the spectrum of their choices of research in future, vide our efforts and activity. Many of our students have been selected in companies such as ‘Thyrocare’, ‘Wipro’, ‘Dr. Reddy’s’, ‘CP Aquaculture’ and received paid internship opportunities with Consortium Clinical Research Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore.
We intend to establish a wide pool of TSBS alumni for sharing their experience and expertise for the benefit of our students. A database in this regard is currently being prepared. Last but not the least, we are proud to state that in addition to serious curricular activities, we strive and train in confidence building and personality development to face the challenges in professional life.
We nurture truth, quality, and responsibility through value-based education.
