    The science of Microbiology is one of the most fascinating sciences in shaping the entire humanity at large. The department of Microbiology since its inception in 2004 has been very active and continues the same tradition.

    The strength of the department is their young, dynamic and qualified faculties, who are active in academics and research at the same time. The department has 3 well equipped laboratories with modern instrumentation and ample glassware’s and chemicals. The department is also planning for two new laboratories  in the near future. The major asset of the department is the alumni from 2004 who are active in academics, industries, research and many other social areas. The department has always been fortunate to have active students who have shown their capability and potential in their exams, and various competitions at state, national and international level, like at Avishkar, Microbiolympiad etc. The icing on the cake was that the department became a part of  DST- FIST and DBT star college scheme which  is now further enhancing and boosting the research  skills among the undergadature students too. The post graduate students along with their teachers are active in research and get their most of the project work published in reputed journals and present the same at various events and conferences.

     We have departmental library established from the donation of the students contribution which contain at least 75 books and educational CDs also.
