Microbiology is integral to the development of strategies for developing ways to combat diseases by understanding the biology of microbial pathogens. B Sc (Hons) Microbiology is a three-year undergraduate degree program imparting comprehensive knowledge to the student in various areas of microbiology to meet the demand of industry and academia. The student will be introduced to the fundamentals of physiology, biochemistry, cell biology, evolution, ecology, and clinical aspects related to microorganisms including the host response to these agents. The program is combined with essential multiple laboratory courses and a research project leading to the dissertation. The program prepares the student to develop approaches to address diseases caused by microbial pathogens. In addition, the program will enlighten the student with the evolutionary relationships between microbes and their habitats.

Scope of Microbiology:

A student completing this program will be sought by the industry and academia to work as bacteriologist, virologist, medical microbiologist, etc. The student will find plenty of placement opportunities in pharmaceutical, food or biopharmaceutical industries after completing the program. There is scope for higher studies as well. The student may opt for the postgraduate program in microbiology, biotechnology, or other relevant streams/disciplines. The student pursuing B Sc (Hons) in Microbiology is also eligible for overseas education and jobs opportunities. Government sectors also hire microbiology graduates for various posts on the basis of exams. Various colleges and labs organize microbiology projects and B Sc (Hons) graduates are eligible to apply for these jobs

Candidate must have passed 10+2 or equivalent system from any recognized Central/ State Board with Physics and Mathematics/Biology as compulsory subject alongwith Chemistry/Biotechnology/ Computer Science with minimum aggregate marks of 45% or equivalent grade for GEN/OBC and 40% marks or equivalent grade for SC/ST Category.
