B.Sc. Microbiology Overview
What is B.Sc. Microbiology?
Bachelor of Science in Microbiology (B.Sc. Microbiology) is a fulltime three years (6 semesters) research & applied life-science program that aims to develop knowledge to prevent or treat disease and develops new industrial & healthcare technologies. Microbiologists play essential roles to improve our lives by providing their services in many areas like medicine, food & dairy science, sustainable environment management etc.
Microbiology is one of the highly advanced fields which directly impacts various essential areas of human life & livelihood. Microbiology is a broad discipline and microbiologists study microbes at the level of proteins and genes (molecular biology & genetics), at the cellular level (cell biology and physiology) and at the community level (public health, ecology and epidemiology). Branches of microbiology includes applied microbiology (soil, agriculture, food, dairy & environment), mycology, virology, parasitology, metabolism & nutritional values, microbial genetics & genomics, food & pharmaceutical industries, fermentation industries and recombinant DNA technology.
Why to select Microbiology as area of specialization?
Subject in trend
Microbiology is an applied branch of Biology, along with Botany, Zoology, Environment, Marine science & Biotechnology. In the current scenario, Microbiology is in trend, makes a real difference to society, as well as plenty of opportunities to continue professional development and travel abroad for the purpose of studies, research, business & service (Indian and international agencies provide travel-fellowships).
Stepping stone for further studies
B.Sc. Microbiology graduates can easily be optimized for M.Sc. Microbiology course as well as in other M.Sc. specialization like Biotechnology, Virology, Agri-microbiology, Bioinformatics, Forensics and many more. Microbiologists possess adequate eligibility for pathological studies and jobs by opting for a specialized degree of DMLT or M.Sc MLT.
