The Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs) – whenever we hear the word IIT, the first thing that pops into our heads in general, is Engineering. But did you know that in IITs, ground-breaking research is being done in Life Sciences, ranging from low-cost medical devices to biodegradable materials? There are several courses in IITs that could be chosen to be done at undergraduate, post-graduate and even research level, for a life science student. In this post, we’ll be discussing about the exams to clear for admission into these courses, along with a list of all the Life-Science related courses offered at each IIT at UG and PG levels.

Getting admission into IITs 

For admission into any undergraduate courses, like B.Tech. and B.Tech.-MTech Dual Degrees, right after 12th class, a good qualifying score in IIT-JEE exam is a must. Postgraduate courses like MSc, (MS Research), MSc-PhD require a valid IIT-JAM score; BSc candidates with relevant subjects can apply for these courses. A valid GATE score is needed for applying for MTech, in the case of B.Tech. In case you are considering to do PhD in IITs, exam scores taken into consideration for admission include GATE, CSIR-NET, UGC-NET, DBT-BET, ICMR, ICAR and DST INSPIRE fellowships.

Out of the 23 IITs in India, 12 of them offer courses in Life Science and other allied engineering subjects.

Below is a list of all the relevant Undergraduate and Post-graduate courses offered.
