BARC director Sekhar Basu said the centre assists universities in designing courses, installing laboratory facilities and providing faculty, and at IIEST-Shibpur, a similar procedure is being thought of.

"IIEST has a good enough faculty and lab facility, so we are discussing it. We have many standard procedures and whichever they find attractive, they could select," Basu told IANS on Friday.

"Many universities have started courses (designed by us). A course in nuclear physics can be started and fellowships can be initiated at the Masters (post-graduate) level."

This apart, Basu said, research collaborations in food preservation, waste management, radio-isotopes as well as nuclear medicine have been proposed.
