About the Subject
Microbiology is the study of microorganisms i.e. the living organisms that we cannot perceived by our naked eyes. Microbiology has had a long, rich history, initially centered in the causes of infectious diseases but now a day’s practical applications of science. Historians are not sure who made the first observation of microorganisms, but the microscope was available during the mid 1600s, and an English scientist named Robert Hooke made key observation. In the 1670s and the decades thereafter, a Dutch merchant named Anton van Leeuwenhoek made careful observations of microscopic organisms, which he called Animalcules.
Modern Microbiology reaches into many fields of human endeavor, including the development of pharmaceutical products, the use of quality control methods in food and dairy product production, the control of disease causing microorganisms in consumable waters, and the industrial applications of microorganisms. Microorganisms are used to produce vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and growth supplements. They manufacture many foods, including fermented dairy products like sour cream, yogurt, and buttermilk as well as other fermented foods such as pickles, sauerkraut, breads, and alcoholic beverages.
Microbiology has tremendous scope and a very bright future. Students who are pursuing their career in microbiology have golden opportunities waiting for them. The scope of microbiology is immense due to its ability to control all critical points of many fields like medical, Dairy, Pharmaceutical, Industrial, Clinical, research, water industry, agriculture, nanotechnology,
- Collaboration among faculty and students.
- Healthy teacher – student relation
- Well educated, well experienced faculty.
Students with good academic rank or percentage prefer technical subjects such as computer science. So the students admitted to this department are either slow learner or low meritorious.
Students are encouraged to take up higher studies along with necessary help is provided for taking admission. Proper counseling is made for them.
Most of the Students belong to villages and from farmer’s families; therefore regularity of students is satisfactory, not the best. It affects their studies. To overcome on this problem is a challenge. To develop punctuality in them is also a challenge.
- To get recognition as Research Laboratory through university. Thus increase research activity in department.
- To organize National level conference on recent trends in research in Microbiology.
- To run the minor and major research project in the department.
- To Start PG in microbiology
