Academics Of Microbiology

The Department of Microbiology was established in the year 1995, with the aim to provide quality teaching and research in microbiology and its importance with reference to latest developments in global scenario. We offer B.Sc, M.Sc and M.Phil Programme in Microbiology. The Department has well established research laboratory facilities. Microbiology that will empower the students, through awareness of the significance of microorganisms in plant, animal and human health, environment, industry and general human welfare by a problem based and skill oriented curriculum. The Department seeks to produce scientific and technical manpower necessary for achieving the national goal of trained Microbiologists.

Microbes are playing important role in the bioprocess of all living things and maintain homeostasis of the universe. Without microbes, one cannot imagine such a biologically balanced and diverse universe; rather our earth would have placed as a barren planet. As the microbial activities are so diverse, the microbiology programme is a multidisciplinary subject, which will have the roots of life science, environmental science, and engineering.

Modern Microbiology has expanded its roots in genome technology, nano biotechnology, green energy (biofuel) technology, bioelectronics etc. Considering recent innovations and rapid growth of microbiological approaches and applications in human and environmental sustainability, the M.Sc. Microbiology curricula is designed to enlighten the students in basics of Microbiology to recent developments.

The overall aim of the Department of Microbiology is to produce students whose skills, scientific appreciation, and critical faculties are sufficiently developed to enable them to embark on independent research.


  • To develop high quality human resource required for both academics and industries as well as to pursue research in the frontier areas of Microbiology of international standard and to rise as center of excellence and information/ knowledge in the all fields of microbiology.


  • To train students in the field of Microbiology, provide value based education, with commitment to academic excellence and innovative research.
  • To undertake research activities relevant to present day needs such as emerging infections, drug developments, biofertilizers in agricultural fields, safety waste disposal/ management and water/ food quality control etc.
  • To develop knowledgeable, motivated and skilled entrepreneurs who can establish/ accompanies modern microbiological industries that could cater the need of the hour.
  • To create a biologically ethical, safe environment for the society.
