Home :: Academic :: School of Studies :: SCHOOL OF STUDIES IN MICROBIOLOGY
Programmes Offered :
  • M. Sc. Microbiology (Two years / Four semesters), Choice Based Credit System
  • Ph.D.

Profile of the Course :
School of Studies in Microbiology came into existence in 1995 under the self supporting programs. The Two year/ four semesters M.Sc. program in Microbiology is based on the semester system with the objective to produce manpower in applied areas. Students who have completed M.Sc. from our Department have been absorbed in various laboratories, industries and other organizations. Some of the students have qualified NET/ GATE examinations as well.

Over the past fifteen years, School of Studies in Microbiology has built up a worthwhile teaching/ research base. In addition to routine laboratories, the Department has a well equipped instrumentation facility, a rich library and computer facility accessible to the students under the guidance of worthy teachers. The major instruments include: Thermal cycler, Gel-Electrophoresis systems, UV-visible spectrophotometer, Cooling centrifuge, Deep freezer and Laminar air flow etc. The Department has successfully completed a few research projects sponsored by Department of Biotechnology, University Grant Commission and MOEF, New Delhi. The post graduate Course in Microbiology offers excellent opportunities for carrier advancement and students can look forward for being absorbed in private/public sectors/autonomous organizations. It is needless to emphasize the scope of microbiology; both the private and public sectors have profuse interest in the industrial applications of microbial technology like synthesizing new drugs, proteins, enzymes, antigens and diagnostic materials.
