Department of Microbiology

Exploring invisibles

About the department-

With tremendous potential in basic research and applied sciences the discipline of ‘microbiology’ is one of the most critical components of modern day science. It includes the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, algae,fungi and protozoa etc . It studies their interaction with their environments as well as how these organisms are harnessed in human endeavour and their impact on society. The study has its extensions in various other conventional and advanced fields of biology by employing microbes as study models. Since inception of microbiology as a branch of science, it has remained an ever-expanding field of active research, broadly categorized as pure and applied science. Microorganisms were discovered over three fifty years ago and it is thought that a huge diversity yet remains to be explored.

Knowledge of different aspects of Microbiology has become crucial and indispensable to

the society. Study of microbes has become an integral part of education and human progress. There is a continuous demand for microbiologists as work force – education, industry and research.Career opportunities for the graduate students are available in industry and research equally.

  • The department of microbiology at SSR College of Arts Commerce and Science was established in the year 2006.
  • Bieng First Microbiology department in Dadra & Nagar Haveli and nearby area it aims to
  • Generate quality Microbiologist with basic theoretical knowledge and good
  • practical hand
  • Continuously enrich and update the students in various fields of Microbiology
  • The department has highly experienced and qualified staff with their experties in various branches of microbiology .
  • The department has good infrastructure with all the basic as well as modern equipments along with good learning resourses.

B.SC. Microbiology –

Bachelers /graduate level curricula is followed to impart basic knowledge of the respective subject from all possible angles. In addition, students are to be trained to apply this knowledge in day-to-day applications and to get a glimpse of research.

Objectives to be achieved:

• To enrich students’ knowledge and train them in the pure microbial sciences

• To introduce the concepts of application and research in Microbiology

• To inculcate sense of scientific responsibilities and social and environment awareness

• To help students build-up a progressive and successful career

Course Structure:

• For First year Bsc : Student has to select 4 different subjects among the subjects

offered by the College /Institute.( ex. Microbiology/botony/zoology/chemistry)

• For Second year Bsc: Student has to select 3 different subjects among 4 subjects
