“AIMT (Amity Institute of Microbial Technology) offers a great program for those who are willing to work hard and wish to be challenged.  They provide an excellent alternative for those who are self-motivated and for those who are willing to work hard and put in the time to achieve success.  There is a working independence to everything.  The faculty and all of those at AIMT were extremely polite.  I found there was a unique one-to-one type of interaction in the University and the closeness of all the staff and students in the department is one of the greatest assets in AIMT.

My experience as a Master’s student in AIMT (Amity Institute of Microbial Technology) was fun but challenging, and I was always asked to be critical in my thinking and understanding of the scientific and analytical approaches. The lecturers, seminars by reputed scientists, global exposure and personal tuition I have had over the past two years in AMITY has enabled me to not only grow as a Microbiologist, but also the community feel to the department as a whole has made me feel AIMT as my second home.
Thanks for everything.”

I received my bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology from the University of Bangalore. Karnataka, India, I join AIMT for my Master degree in 2007. This was an excellent platform for me as well as others who really wanted to achieve knowledge with great potential and reach their goals towards the success. AIMT puts in great emphasis on international collaboration. AIMT also organizes weekly seminars given by renowned scientists from institutes around the world which further helps students to know the depth of knowledge and research background in their field.

The research faculty (lecturers and scientists) and Human Resource Department at AIMT were extremely helpful from the entire corner. During my study I found there was a unique one-to-one type of interaction in the class and also special meeting with teachers to solve the difficulty during my study. AIMT education core facility always tries to explore their knowledge to motivate the students towards research direction. At the center closeness of all the staff and students in the department is one of the greatest assets in AIMT.

Studying at AIMT was a lifetime experience. The best part of AIMT was exposure to the outer world which is based on practical applications and not just limited to theoretical knowledge. Be it practicals, presentations, workshops, conferences etc. I would say it has given us much exposure ranging from national to global scenarios. The most relaxed way of teaching makes it different from others. We learned how to interact with different people. The value added courses has also played an important role in our learning. This place is made for those people who want to challenge themselves.
