Introduction to Bachelor of Science in Microbiology
Bachelor of Science in Microbiology is a three year, full time Graduation course which deals with the study of microorganisms, which are microscopic, unicellular, and cell-cluster organisms. Microbiology typically includes the study of the immune system, or Immunology, the interaction of the immune system with pathogenic microbes Microbiology is a broad term which includes virology, mycology, parasitology, bacteriology and other branches. A microbiologist gains expertise in the above mentioned fields.
Eligibility: Passed Class12(Science) or Equivalent from a recognised University Compulsory Subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Biology Some Universities conduct an entrance test
Microbiologists can work across industries such as Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Pathology, Food and Beverages, Enviromental Organizations, Chemical Industries, Biotechnology Etc.Some of the Careers typically taken up by Microbiology graduates are:
Bacteriologists : Work on the study of bacteriaMycologists : Work on the study of fungiMedical Microbiologists : diagnosis and treatment of microbial diseases in patientsBiochemist : Research the evolution, growth and propogation of organisms Immunologists : Research and Study on the Immune SystemParasitologists : Study of ParasitesProtozoologists : Work on the study of protistsCell Biologists : Explore the actions of molecules on and in the cell. Their investigations determine how microorganisms and cell function.Geneticists : The language of life is written with four letters, A, C, G, and T. Each letter taken by itself is meaningless. But together the letter create a code of life. Geneticists study the process by which organisms inherit and transmit genetic information.
Food Microbiologists : Study microorganisms that cause foodborne illness and spoilage of foodVirologists : Study viruses and bacteriophages. Virologists are interested in how viruses change and are always on the alert for new types.
Biotechnologist : Manipulate genes in order to modify microorganisms. Their work produced novel organisms that make new products for human use. (i.e. insulin, medicine, grocery store items).
Environmental Microbiologists : Work on the study of microbial processes in the environment
Other Careers:Industrial Microbiologists : Involves working in the field of biotechnology to study microorganisms that produce useful products.Science Writer : Subject Matter Expert for Technical WritingTeachers : Teaching in the field of related fields
Study Further An Individual can choose to study Masters of Science(MSc) / Masters of Philosophy / PDoctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Microbiology in India or Abroad
