About programme

Why externships?

School and college education focuses on making the learners understand the fundamentals of science and the way of applying the fundamental knowledge in a process or product making. While learning the fundamentals in their respective educational institutions, the learners should also enter into other modes of productive, practical oriented learning from applied institutions and industries. Industrial visits, In-plant training, Internships, apprenticeships, externships etc are some of the scope additionally available for the active learners to expand their applied knowledge.

Among these different channels, externships are special, short, career oriented programmes that are offered to the learners by industries to make the learners understand about different job roles and operation model of industrial setups, which will ultimately trigger their applied knowledge and urge them to further develop skills needed for industries.

Externships are usually encouraged for high school students and graduation learners since it is highly needed for these learners to understand the industrial platform for which they are currently learning and building skills. However, it is quite impossible for every student to get externships in different industries of different sectors. We, BioLim, understood the need of externships for young students and carefully designed this very short term industry based virtual/online externship with the help of internal and advisory experts.

About this externship

Biopharmaceuticals are pharmaceutical drugs that were produced from or using living organisms (both from natural and genetically modified ones). The field is empowered through a range of scientific disciplines such as biochemistry, plant science, microbial science, animal sciences, pharmacology, biotechnology, engineering etc. Biopharmaceuticals are one of the important sources of medicine for a variety of diseases including diabetes, cancer and so on. Biopharmaceutical industry exists in a stand alone way or as a part of a general pharmaceutical company in researching, producing, packing and supplying biopharma products on a large scale around the world. This short term externship programme provides you a complete overview on the biopharmaceutical industry, its mission, operation parameters, organisation structure, different departments, production, supply, quality control, career scope and so on.
