DBT has therefore, launched a scheme for improving critical thinking and ‘hands on’ experimental work at undergraduate (college) level in sciences. It is expected to encourage more students to take up higher education in science. DBT identifies colleges with ambition and potential for excellence and provide academic and physical infrastructure for achieving excellence in teaching and unique exposure of students to experimental science. Department has supported around 200 undergraduate colleges across the country in the past 9 years. Apart from financial support, colleges have benefited tremendously from guidance received in Advisory Committee Meetings, mentoring, Task Force Meetings and learning from peers in other colleges.
