History of Dept:-B.Sc. Microbiology(General)-10/09/2001
Mission & Vision:- The Department of Microbiology was started in 2001 as a general course and subsequently upgraded to the Honours Department since 2002 under University of Calcutta.
Microbiology deals with the knowledge about microbes around us and this branch of life science has vast research area. We want to provide our students with the basics to cope up with the demands of modern research and technique.
Industry visits are conducted for students for the knowledge about industry.
Some students pursuing their M.Sc from University of Calcutta, JNU and St. Xaviers College ,
Students did place themselves in industry and academic institutes.

Future Plan:- Today is perhaps the best time in history to be a microbiologist! The development of new experimental techniques and ability to sequence organisms without actually culturing them in the laboratory first has revealed diversity and complexity in the microbial world not previously known. Therefore our plan is to improve facilities, good infrastructure & better vision about the subject.
