The M.Sc. course in Microbiology and Immunology was set up to enhance the training of scientists studying the interactions between microbes and the immune system, and for those students wishing to enter a research career and gain high level skills in Microbiology and Immunology.
Program Outcomes (POs)
PO1: Apply the knowledge of principles and concepts of Microbiology to practical problems in industry and academia.
PO2: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze biological problems to arrive at substantiated conclusions using principles of life sciences.
PO3: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern analytic tools including prediction and modeling of biology with an understanding of the limitations.
PO4: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional industrial practice.
PO5: Understand the impact of the biotechnology, and demonstrate the knowledge with sustainable manner and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the industrial and scientific community, function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in multidisciplinary settings.
PO6: Communicate effectively by writing reports and presentation with the scientific community and society at large. Be able to comprehend and documentation by giving and receive clear instructions.
PO7: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of scientific and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team. Manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
PO8: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological and scientific change.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
PEO1: The objective of the Microbiology is to equip the students to apply knowledge of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cellular processes, classification, interaction of microorganisms among themselves, with physical and chemical agents and higher order organisms.
PEO2: The laboratory training in addition to theory is included to prepare them for careers in the industry, agriculture, and applied research where biological system is increasingly employed. Basics and current molecular updates in the areas of Industrial Microbiology, Fermentation Technology, Agriculture and Environmental Microbiology are included to train the students and also sensitize them to scope for research.
PEO3: The Masters in Microbiology Programme will address the increasing need for skilled scientific manpower with an understanding of research ethics involving microorganisms to contribute to application, advancement and implementation of knowledge in the field of microbiology and molecular biology globally.
PEO4: To produce students who pursue careers as practicing microbiologist in the field of microbiology and allied industries.
PEO5: To produce students who demonstrate a commitment to life-long learning.
Program Specific Outcomes (PSOs)
PSO1: An expert to work on microbiological concepts and allied fields (medical, microbial, agricultural, environmental, plant and animal) with modern tools and techniques towards product and process development for academic, industrial and research applications.
