UM-DAE Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (CBS)

The Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India and the University of Mumbai, Vidyanagari Campus jointly launched, in September 2007, a Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences (CBS) offering high-quality undergraduate teaching embedded in a postgraduate and research environment. Some of the best teachers from University of Mumbai departments and University of Mumbai-affiliated colleges, and from proximate partner institutions like Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, IIT-Mumbai and the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, have helped design courses and are participating in teaching activities of the Centre in the areas of physics, life sciences, mathematics, chemistry. CBS is an autonomous centre and is governed by a Council chaired by The Secretary, Department of Atomic Energy and co-chaired by the Vice Chancellor of the University of Mumbai.

CBS offers a five-year Integrated M.Sc. program in the Basic Sciences for students who have completed 10+2 schooling or its equivalent. A modern, flexible, integrated and seamless curriculum has been developed that places considerable emphasis on practical training and development of analytical and problem-solving skills in addition to formal learning. The Centre will offer courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and life sciences, and CBS students, upon graduation, will be awarded the M.Sc. degree in one of the four subjects.

Admission to the 5-year Integrated Masters programme is through the National Entrance Screening Test (NEST), held every year in May/June, at a large number of centres around the country.
More details about NEST can be obtained at the NEST Website www.nestexam.in.

Admissions to NISER, Bhubaneswar and CBS, Mumbai are done through this entrance test.
