B.Sc. (Hons) Microbiology


Duration:   4 years course.
Affiliation:   MGM University, Aurangabad.
Eligibility:   H.S.C. Science with minimum 45% marks ( 40% for Reserved categories).

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms. Microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae and viruses play a very important role in ecology, health and industry. Complete understanding of structure, function and contained use of microorganisms is important for productive application of microorganisms to derive economic benefit. This requires various skills necessary for isolation, culture, identification and improvement of microorganisms. Study of microbiology course will equip student with requisite skills to become competent for services in agriculture, pharmaceutical, and food industries where these skills are required and are in demand.
