The Department of Microbiology was started in the year 2019. Microbiology is the study of a diverse group of microscopic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa. The courses focus on the general principles of microbiology and their effect on the living forms and environment. The goals of our UG and PG programs are to provide basic and comprehensive interactive education in microbiology and to enhance the research activities along with state of the art laboratory and industrial interaction and internships. The graduation project provides an opportunity for the students for in-depth learning related to academic or a self-selected topic. The students are encouraged to communicate their research outcomes and views among the scientific society. The department has qualified and competent faculty members with broad teaching and research experience with research publications in both national and international peer-reviewed journals.
From 2020, the department also offers certificate course in Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT). From the MLT course, the students will be able to apply their knowledge and technical skills associated with medical lab technology and perform routine clinical laboratory associated analysis.
The Department of Microbiology aims to be a leading hub of innovation and excellence in Microbiology education, research, and application, fostering a deeper understanding of microbial sciences to address global challenges.
