FST Postgraduate


Marine science programme encompasses studies of the ocean’s physical characteristics and its resources, both living and non-living. The programme covers almost the entire sub-fields of the marine domain such as biology, physiology, ecology, diversity, and taxonomy of marine organisms (fishes, invertebrates, bacterioplankton, phytoplankton) and plants (seagrass, seaweed, macroalgae), marine biotechnology, marine chemistry, marine geology, marine remote sensing and GIS. Physical disciplines such as oceanography, marine meteorology, ocean climate are also covered in the programme.
