Fees: 21000

Duration: 3 years (6 semester)

  1. Course Overview:

    Microbiology is considered the mother of research in all biological sciences including biochemistry, genetics, evolution, biotechnology, herbal formulations, etc. Microorganisms are determinants of human health and the source of critical material for medical and industrial use. Genetic engineering and manipulations also rely on microbial technologies and microbial genes to make modifications that improve crops, livestock breeds, and synthetic feedstocks. In agriculture and food technology, the role of microbes is also very important. 

Program Outcomes (POs):

  1. The under graduate B.Sc. Microbiology program outcome will be to develop technical skills in the students which helps in the manipulation of living organisms and biological systems to produce products.
  2. After the completion of this course students will be contributing in the advancement of healthcare, medicine, agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals and environment control.
  3. This program outcome will be to develop historical knowledge about biotechnology, microbiology and microscopy. After completion of this B.Sc. program students will able to characterize different types of microbes and also able to culture them. The program should be designed on the basis of applications; however, this program is also having various applications for human welfare. So, after completion of this course students will be skilled in agriculture, industrial, environment, and forensic as well as medical biotechnology. This program also has some specific courses related to developmental biology, so students can understand well about the developing process of living beings.
  4. This program also has some specific courses related to developmental biology, so students can understand well about the developing process of the living beings. This program will also provide broad idea about cell and their structures, so that students can easily explain about cells as well as cellular organs.
  5. After the completion of this course students will able to understand about the diagnostic procedures such as ELISA, PCR, Immunological Assay, chromatography and microscopy. This program is a professional course so it has industrial applications also. At the end of this program students will be skilled for bioprocess technology, biosynthesis of products such as alcohol, biodiesel, pharmaceutical products, agriculture products, enzyme engineering and protein engineering etc. on the basis of above skills students will able to self-entrepreneur and able to know about business, copyrights as well as patents. The students will get the basic idea of bio-techniques to apply in their future carrier. The students will learn modern data analysis techniques which can be applied in industries for drug development.
  6. The program of undergraduate of environmental microbiology can affect many aspects of life and can be easily applied to environments. The field of environmental microbiology interfaces with a number of different subspecialties including soil, aquatic and aerodynamic microbiology, as well as bioremediation, water quality, and occupational health.
  7. This undergraduate program of B.Sc. outcome will be to understand basics of immunology, role of antibodies with the development of various types of vaccines. Students would able to learn of viruses and their diagnosis.
  8. After completion of this course students have the knowledge of lower plants their classification and economic importance. Students also gains knowledge of various plant diseases. This program also helps the students to understand the concept of root and shoot tissue system and secondary growth. This program also gives the knowledge of plant water relation, role of micro and macro nutrients and other biochemical pathways in plants.
  9. This program will give an in-depth knowledge about the origin of non-chordates and chordates with their economic importance and will also be able to recognize different species in levels of classification. This course wills insight about the relationships between different physiological mechanisms and help in explaining the different mechanisms of human body.
  10. This course will give idea about various tools and technology for DNA application and methods and also helpful to develop knowledge about prospective of environment and their issues. This course designed will helpful to develop various technologies for food preservation and industrial work out for food manufacturing.
  11. The students will learn about the general characteristics of Lower Plants. As well as students will learn about the abiotic and biotic components of the environment. The study of protein purification techniques will help the students to establish structural and function relationship of any novel protein.
  12. The students will get aware about advanced agriculture techniques to enhance the crop productivity. After the completion of this program the students will ably identify the microbes with the help of various biological techniques.
