The study of all living organisms that are too small to see with the naked eye is known as microbiology. This comprises bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungus, prions, protozoa and algae, generally known as 'microbes'. These bacteria are essential in nutrient cycle, biodegradation/biodeterioration, climate change, food spoilage, disease causation and control, and biotechnology.

We aim to place all of our students in desired government professions. The classes are handled expertly by qualified faculty. One of the stepping stones on our path to success is high-quality teaching.

Why is microbiology important?

Microbes are essential to all life on Earth. They play an important role in a variety of biochemical processes, including biodegradation, biodeterioration, climate change, food spoilage, epidemiology, and biotechnology.
