Specializations Offered

At undergraduate level, technically and professionally oriented, specialization courses are offered to deepen your knowledge in your area of study to make you more focused and competent for scientific world. Each of these specialization shall be spread over second and third year of Microbiology courses at graduation level. Students may choose one specialization stream out of offered two modules at the onset of second year.

Food & Dairy Microbiology

The module provides emphasis on food and dairy concepts along with hands on practical which will be helpful for developing independent technical skills required for students. The program will deals with food quality & safety by covering various challenging issues like fermentation, probiotics, food adulteration, food spoilage etc. This Food & Dairy Microbiology certification course will be helpful for the career development.

Medical Microbiology

This course provides learning opportunities in basic principles of medical microbiology and infectious disease. It also offers the conceptual basis for understanding pathogenic microorganisms and the mechanisms by which they cause disease in the human body which will be helpful to develop informatics and diagnostic skills, including the use and interpretation of laboratory tests in the diagnosis of infectious diseases. The practical sessions of the course focuses on the isolation and identification procedures of pathogenic microorganisms in clinical samples and their antibiotic susceptibility.

Professional and Scientific Communication

Scientists are deliberately evaluated by their art of transmitting their ideas and findings. The course looks into science communication as a whole process and gives students the opportunity to train oral and written techniques to meet the demand of research and communication world. The course will start with the conventional approach to scientific writing. The program will focuses on training students in conceiving, reporting, writing, and editing scientific content. This is the compulsory module for the graduate students. Certificate will be provided after successful completion.
