The inception of the Department of Microbiology was in the year 1988. Since then the department has made remarkable progress and has grown in considerable ways. Since its inception, the department has been offering three year undergraduate programme in Microbiology with Chemistry and Zoology combination (MCZ) and Microbiology with Chemistry and Botany (MCB). In 1998, a post graduate programme was instituted. Both the programmes are well designed keeping in mind the practical, theoretical and research skills required. Under each program, we offer a broad spectrum of courses that enable students to critically think, apply, analyze, evaluate and create. The courses are taught by professors with high credentials who are academic practitioners and are engaged in research.
The Department intends to inculcate in the students an interest to explore the world of Microbiology and contribute to the rapidly expanding field. We wish to offer the society, a generation of humble yet aspiring young minds eagerly striving towards unraveling the mystery of Science. The Department of Microbiology aims at identifying one’s potential to become a centre for augmenting and contributing continuously to the vibrant field of Microbiology. We strive to create and provide an ambient learning atmosphere and prepare students for academia, industry and productive application of this knowledge in everyday life. It emphasizes the impact of microbes on environment and the human activities. The associations of the department are Microcosm – managed by the undergraduate students and Microbiological Society run by the students from the postgraduate section.
