M.Sc. Agricultural Biotechnology or Master of Science in Agricultural Biotechnology is a postgraduate Agriculture Science and Technology course. Agricultural Biotechnology is a broad multidisciplinary field that encompasses the parts of exact, natural, economic and social sciences that are used in the practice and understanding of agriculture. The duration of Master of Science in Agricultural Biotechnology is mostly of two academic years but it may vary from institute to institute and also may be on part time basis by certain institutes. The syllabus for the course is divided into four semesters and it is an important one that opens many career opportunities for them after its completion.
