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.
