Community Development Programme

The students of M.Sc. biochemistry initiated a community development programme that aimed to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the knowledge to improve their life. Here free health checkup, BMI calculation, blood pressure and blood glucose evaluation along with health counseling is provided for the MCC auxiliary staff.


For hands on experience of various biochemical techniques, the students have completed internship projects at Azymes biosciences, Bangalore Baptist Hospital, Elbit Diagnostic Labs, Biocon, GKVK, HCG hospital, Sky diagnostic center, Anglo French Drugs and Industries etc.


Mount Carmel College, Bangalore, envisions a life-oriented education that empowers the students through a humanizing and liberative process, to be agents of transformation and development at different levels of life. Enabled and empowered, they respond pro – actively to concerns and conflicts inherent in today’s reality, especially those of women and persons who are unable to exercise their freedom to be human and work for the integrity of creation. The thrust is in the light of a “Civilisation of love”, the Kingdom of God, as envisaged and promoted by the Foundress, Mother Teresa of St. Rose of Lima. Read More>>>
