Registration: Terms & Conditions

This is not a training course. This program envisages to create an awareness among graduates/postgraduates and research students on use of sophisticated analytical instruments. Persons from industries, teachers under FIP/TIP and other schemes will not be entertained. Hands own training is not feasible. But elaborate laboratory demonstration by expert technical persons will be made available. Each analytical facilities covered under the programme is a massive subject hence detailing in every aspects may not be possible in a short span.

Programme fee: Rs. 500 per student per day GST extra @18%

  • Number of students permitted per module- minimum 20 maximum 40 Students are permitted to carry lunch with them.
  • Please note that it is often difficult for us to find someone to fill your seat. You will not incur a refund but can find a substitute to take your place.
  • We have done our best to create a favorable environment for teaching and learning.
  • There is plenty of time for questions and discussions during each course.
