B.Sc MEDICAL LABORATORY

Programme Overview

Duration: 3 Years | Programme Code: 100208

B.Sc. Medical Laboratory Technology is an undergraduate 3 yearsacademic program. It is complementary to medical science and deals with the diagnosis of diseases through the use of clinical laboratory tests. MLT students become specialized at analysis of body matter such as fluid, tissue and blood, micro-organism screening, chemical analyses, and cell count. Students also learn to handle advanced lab equipments and perform accurate laboratory tests. This course offers wide career opportunities as laboratory technologist at hospitals, Pharmaceutical laboratories, Public Health Laboratories and ResearchOrganization. Students receive a restorative and supportive academic experience along with a financially successful social life.
