Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Neuroscience Technology (NST) is a 4 years undergraduate course in the field of health care concerned with the use of technology and equipment in the scientific use of the nervous system.

Neuroscience deals with the structure and function of the nervous system.

The scope of neuroscience technology is continuously broadening and qualified professionals of the discipline can seek both medical and non- medical career opportunities.

The candidates are trained in both theoretical and practical aspect of neuroscience technology This is also improved by hands on training in well advanced Neurodiagnostic lab of our institute during their academic period.

Graduates are eligible for employment overseas where their qualifications, training and experience are highly regarded. With further experience, graduates may be employed by medical equipment manufacturers and development specialists.

The candidate seeking admission in our college shall have studies English as one of the principal subject during the tenure of the course and must have passed Two Year Pre-University or equivalent examination with physics, chemistry and biology as main subjects. OR
Candidates who have passed Diploma in Neuroscience Technology awarded by the State Board or an equivalent, are also eligible for direct admission to II year under lateral entry scheme.
