Course programme

The Department of Microbiology and Biotechnology Centre offers a two years Post Graduate program leading to the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Microbiology. M.Sc in this programme begin with fundamental courses in Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology and Molecular Biology and then proceed to a thorough study of their selected area of specialization.

Course work is spread over a period of two years encompassing three rounds of tests for five papers all round the year culminating in a final examination at the end of the year.

Research Projects

Students undertake a Research project, for the duration of their course work as a part of the practical training. The aim is to provide them sufficient experience and proficiency in the methodology of biological research, to enable them to carry out independent research. Projects are assigned as far as possible, according to the individual interests of students and are carried out in our own labs of the Department/University/Industry. After submission of their dissertation, they undergo a viva voce, in which they have to defend their work. Students are also required to give a Major Seminar during their course work.
