It is indeed a pleasure to welcome new and continuing students who have enrolled or will enroll in the Integrated MSc-PhD program, in Life Sciences and Physical Sciences at Bose Institute. The curriculum and the teaching methodology that we offer have been designed such that a typical student not only learns science but also learns “How to learn science”. This is where Bose Institute is unique. Hands-on-training at the laboratory, active participation in Seminars, learning the basics of communication skills and scientific ethics comprise a subset of many parts that make up the curriculum. Our approach is holistic and we seek to produce independent scientists. So, let me welcome you again — the most valuable asset of Bose Institute, our students!
