Programme Overview:

B.Sc. in Microbiology is a 3- year long, full- time course. Microbiology has emerged as a key biological science, since microorganisms provide the model used in molecular biology for research purposes. Microbiology is a broad discipline that involves the study of the biology of bacteria, viruses, protozoa and fungi. The main focus of the course is the pathogenic potential of the organisms that cause disease in man. The course also covers aspects of the biochemistry, physiology and genetics of microorganisms. There is a growing recognition of the potential of microorganisms in a range of applied areas. Microbiologists study these organisms using tools, like microscopes, genetics, and culturing. In the areas of biotechnology, agriculture and food production, microbes are continually exploited for the benefit of man. Microbiologists are needed to do the research required for the future battle against diseases worldwide and to apply microbes in the production of food.

Career Opportunities:

Microbiologists are in demand in medical research, quality control, and the biotechnology industry. Many such graduates secure jobs as researchers working in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes. Microbiologists can find job opportunities in sectors such as government and private hospitals, food industries, research and development organizations, chemical industries and pharmaceutical industries. Some of the popular professional avenues open to such graduates besides Academics are Bacteriologist, Virologist, Mycologist, Cell biologist, Biochemist etc.
