M. Sc. Microbiology
Profile of the Department:
School of Studies in Microbiology came into existence in 1994. The Two year/ four semesters M.Sc. program in Microbiology is based on the Choice Based Credit system (CBCS) with the objective to produce manpower in applied areas. Students who have completed M.Sc. from this Department have been absorbed in various laboratories, industries and other organizations like Rail Neer, Cipla, Teva Api, ARLB- Baddi, IIIM Jamu, BITS, Pilani etc. Some of the students have qualified NET/ GATE examinations as well.
Over the past 26 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.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.
Very recently the department has been identified as ” Centre of Excellence ” by MP Higher Education Quality Improvement Programme.
