In Selvam College of Technology, Namakkal we thought differently to surpass the present hurdles. We have initiated a Research wing called as Selvam Computational Biology Research Center (SCBRC), where research personals will be handling this course besides the SCT regular staffs. We have lot many projects from different agencies like DST, BARC, DBT etc., and also have collaboration with CCS-USA- through our projects. We are also in the process of establishing more work in accordance with industry. We train students through our real time work by making them participating in our research projects. Our international journals will help students to know about the procedure of writing manuscripts of research and review articles, editing and publishing. The faculties are mostly fellowship winners hence will get help to apply for foreign fellowships. Our collaborations will help the students to interact with foreign scientists and also with Indian Scientists through our projects and will lead into a study abroad. Application oriented learning will assure job easily. We motivate the students by conducting various workshops and symposium and allowed them to present their ideas. We also train the students for TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) this will improve communication and language skills through our Language Lab. (This is mandatory to our students since they face foreign researchers in their curriculum period). The funding will improve the Instrumentation facilities, software’s and man present scenario in the global level. The Organization of workshops, seminars, etc through projects will help the students to expand their area of interest. We are also thinking of ‘Earn while you learn Program’ with this course. Interested students will be trained along with certificate to make them eligible to work with scientists in their projects. Brilliant Student’s project will earn patents and papers along with scientists.
