The primary focus of the FBAS is teaching and research. We offer a very broad range of courses and programs of study. All the courses that are offered to students at different levels are designed to prepare not only skilled professionals but also good human beings. Learning and growth at IIUI is not confined to the class rooms but other kinds of opportunities are around in abundance. Each student has the advantage of having interaction with people from many different backgrounds, culture and interests. There are many people around who are ready and willing to provide assistance and advices; students need only to ask.
Our permanent faculty is a dynamic and growing community of scholars active in most of the principal areas of research in Science and Technology. We have also succeeded in receiving cooperation and assistance from the highly qualified and learned academicians in the twin cities in the form of Adjunct Faculty for our research programme in different departments.
If you are a prospective undergraduate or graduate student in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Bio Informatics/Biotechnology, Environment Sciences, Mathematics, Physics or Statistics, please come to visit us at IIUI– we always have time to welcome and entertain new and talented students.
