M.Sc. Microbiology/Virology

Institute of Biosciences & Technology

Program Outline

The program involves the study of medical and molecular aspects of bacteriology, virology, mycology, epidemiology and management of infectious diseases. It preparesthe students for a career in biomedical/ clinical sciences, academics and industrial research.In simple terms, it is study of small living things that cannot be seen without the use of a microscope, such as microorganisms or microbes.
The program aims to provide advance education and research inMicrobiology/Virologythat can offer sustainable solutions for agriculture, environment and energy sectors
