Scope of the Course

The medical microbiology has a wider scope in the diagnosis of diseases in hospitals and in laboratories. Due to vast and fast development, many new industries (Pharmaceutical, food and dairy) have been developed for need of everyday life. Microbiologists have a vivid opportunity to work in quality control department to check the quality of the new product produced without contamination.

The waste water coming out from the industries should be treated and discarded. So the microbiologist also has a scope in the sewage treatment plan. Due to the importance of the subject the Microbiology has been started in school levels also, the PG microbiology graduates with B.Ed qualification can also work in schools as PG Teacher. Finally there are so many researches undergoing in numerous fields so there is scope of becoming a research scholar also.
