About the Department


A bit of science distances one from God, but much science nears one to him.... The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of creator?.      - Louis Pasture


 The Department of Microbiology was started in 1990 at the undergraduate level with the aim to inculcate scientific temper amongst students from rural and hilly regions. The department strives on total grooming of the students through basic skills of microbiology. The postgraduate program was started in the year 2007 as there was no such course available to students in this region. The department believes in inculcating the skills among the rural students to cope up with the global challenges. The participative learning of the students is a priority to aware them about the cross cutting issues from their theory and practical courses. We focus on enriching competence of the students to achieve their desirable goals.
