B.Sc (Hons) Microbiology
About the Program
The B.Sc., programme of three years is designed to help all the students to get good quality education in the field of Microbiology so that they can pursue Post Graduation or find employment. The ultimate aim is to enable the students to develop an integrated approach for understanding the various life science problems at the molecular level. In addition, the present curriculum gives scope for the students entering different modules to update their knowledge depending upon the employment opportunities in each area. The course will provide solid foundation for all the students regardless of background and will gain a comprehensive understanding of the microbial tools, microorganisms and allied areas, including clinical and research aspects and with the special attention to current development in the discipline.
Chemistry, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Introduction to Microbial World, Bacteriology, Phycology and Mycology, Bioinstrumentation, Molecular Biology, Virology, Microbial Physiology and Metabolism, Food and Agricultural Microbiology, Biotechnology, Plant Pathology, Programming in C and C++, Microbial Genetics and Genomics, Basic Concepts in Immunology, Industrial Microbiology, Medical Microbiology etc.
XII with Chemistry and Biology from a recognized Board with a minimum of 50 % marks in aggregate.
After completion of the course candidate can work as Bacteriologist, Biochemist, Geneticist, and Industrial Microbiologist, Food Microbiologist, Ecologist, Environmental Microbiologist Medical Microbiologist, Weed Scientist, Science Adviser, Research Development, in Multinational Companies, Public Sectors, Quality Control Labs, Biopharmaceuticals companies, Food industries as well as in Universities and the present curriculum will cater to that needs.
Post Graduate Programs
About the Program
There is also an increasing demand for life scientists to contribute to the public understanding of science as journalists and information officers in view of the ethical and environmental issues that arise, for example, by developments in molecular biology and biotechnology. The study revolves around the biological structure of microorganisms, cellular and molecular functioning, ecology, division and as a subject of the human resource.
Graduation in science with minimum 50% marks aggregate and Chemistry and Biology as one of the subjects.
In the public sector, Microbiology graduates are in demand in research institutes, government departments, the National Health Service, forensic science and the Environment Agency. There is also an increasing demand for Microbiologists to contribute to the public understanding of science as journalists and information/liaison officers.
