DEPARTMENT OF MICROBIOLOGY

About the Department



The Department of Microbiology officially began in the academic year 1999-2000 paying heed to the suggestions offered by Dr.S.P.Thiyagarajan, former Vice- chancellor, University of Madras and the commission member for the department of Microbiology. The College offers this course at the under graduate level.The focus of the department is to train science students on the third biotic component- the microbes. The department laboratory is bestowed with good infrastructure facility with all the required equipment. The department is provided with a separate library with the prescribed and recommended National, International books of Microbiology and related fields. As a part of social responsibility from its earliest years, the students of the department of Microbiology regularly visit school students to create awareness on infectious disease with their preventive and control measures. The Microbiology association which was started with the motto “The invisible sustaining the visible” regularly organizes various competitions, guest lectures, workshops, seminars and conferences for the enhancement of the quality of students.
