Microbiology is the most important medical discipline of biology that helps to detect disease-causing organism like microbes, pathogens, or various kind of viruses that are responsible for causing disease in human and animal. The programme equips students with the knowledge of diagnosing and treating diseases caused by bacteria, fungi and parasites. The offered programme combines lectures, seminars and practical laboratory classes, culminating in a laboratory-based research project. The field aims to research such microbes for use in industrial, agriculture, genital engineering, modern medicine, food, and beverage, and the fermentation industry.


Program Objectives:


• Develop advanced knowledge and understanding of the principles of medical microbiology.
• Acquire specialized knowledge in various branches of medical microbiology, including bacteriology, virology, mycology, and Parasitology,immunology,Serology, Mycobacteriology, Molecular lab and Hospital infections control Fully automated microbiology laboratory.
• Master advanced laboratory techniques and methodologies for the isolation, identification, and characterization of microorganisms.
• Analyze and interpret complex microbial data, including genomic and molecular information, for diagnostic and research purposes.
• Understand the pathogenesis of microbial infections and their impact on human health, including host-pathogen interactions.
• Investigate antimicrobial resistance mechanisms and develop strategies for their control and management.
• Evaluate and implement advanced diagnostic methods and technologies in medical microbiology.
• Comprehend the principles of immunology and immunotherapeutic approaches to combat infectious diseases.
• Engage in research activities, including thesis projects, to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in medical microbiology.
• Participate in practical training, internships, or clinical attachments to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world settings and gain hands-on experience.

Career Prospectives

An MSc in Medical Microbiology opens up several career opportunities in various fields. Graduates can work in research and development in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry, diagnostic laboratory work, public health administration, and academic research and teaching. Here are some of the career prospects for graduates with an MSc in Medical Microbiology:


Microbiologist: Microbiologists work in laboratories to study microorganisms and their effects on humans, animals, plants, and the environment. They develop new techniques and technologies to identify and treat microbial infections.


Medical Laboratory Technologist: Medical laboratory technologists work in diagnostic laboratories and perform tests on biological specimens to identify infectious agents and help diagnose diseases.


Epidemiologist: Epidemiologists study the incidence, prevalence, and distribution of diseases in populations. They investigate outbreaks of infectious diseases and develop strategies to prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases.


Pharmaceutical Researcher: Pharmaceutical researchers work in the development and testing of new drugs and therapies to treat infectious diseases.


Public Health Officer: Public health officers work in government agencies to develop and implement policies to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and promote public health.


Academic Researcher: Academic researchers work in universities and research institutions to conduct research on infectious diseases and develop new treatments and prevention strategies.


Overall, the demand for medical microbiologists is increasing due to the increasing incidence of infectious diseases and the need for new diagnostic and treatment methods. Graduates with an MSc in Medical Microbiology are well-positioned to pursue rewarding careers in this field.
