Microbiology is a branch of Biology that includes the study of growth characteristics and various other aspects related to the Microorganism. Microbiologists find jobs in many places like Research Organization, Pharmaceutical, Food, Beverage and Chemical Industries, Universities, Research Institutes etc.

The Department of Microbiology has three primary responsibilities such as teaching/training, diagnostic laboratory services and research activities. The Microbiology Department is actively involved in teaching undergraduates and diploma students. Training and educational events are organized in the form of workshops and CME's. The Department of Microbiology has qualified faculty members assigned with various theory and practical. They give emphasis on learning of the students. The lectures lay emphasis on knowledge content (topics in the curriculum), Utility Value – application in real life, latest developments etc.

Microbiology typically includes the study of immune system, mycology, bacteriology, genetics, virology, parasitology and entomology.
