The laboratories of the discipline are equipped enough to support different tests like proximate composition, PCR tests etc to support all stakeholders in addition to the students. The discipline has a very strong alumni association which is closely associated with academic and non-academic activities for ensuring the quality of the graduates. The graduates of this discipline have already acquired fame in governmental and non-governmental job markets.
