Learning Outcome


The entire post graduate curriculum of Microbiology is divided into four semesters with 100 credit points. The curriculum is framed in such a way that at the end of the course the students will acquire an overall knowledge on the Microbial world along with the extensive exposure with the Microbial System in the laboratory.


The objectives of the curriculum are:


  • To consolidate the knowledge and appreciation of Microbiology.

  • To introduce satisfaction and insight of original research work through the projects, paper presentation and seminars.

  • To introduce familiarity with scientific methods by analyzing the technical data and conclusions in the original research papers.

  • To develop familiarity with computer application for data analysis and searching of data bases.

  • To provide opportunities for microbiological field work for collection of samples from various environmental sources with laboratory follow up.

  • To prepare students for competitive National examinations like NET , GATE etc

  • To prepare students for employment by

 



  1. Encouraging them to organize their own programme of work.

  2. Developing their motivation and individual work ethics.

  3. Developing the ability for concise writing and verbal communication on scientific topics.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOME


  • Research aptitude development by
  1. Selection of a topic
  2. Stating a question by applying scientific method
  3. Researching the topic and determining the test
  4. Collecting, analyzing and presenting the data
  5. Proposing new question about the topic.
  • Laboratory safety skill development - Properly performs Microbiological experiments and displays a habit of good laboratory practice.

  • Appraisal of Microbiological information- Retrieve, evaluate and use of Microbiological information regarding contemporary issues in the world and relevant to their every day's life.

  • Analytical skill development - Systematically analyzing and interpreting the experimental data.

  • Information competency and technology skill- Correct assessment and evaluation of any experimental data by using software and other computer aided technology.

  • Oral and written communication skill - Exhibit oral and written communication competency through paper presentation, case work, projects and other laboratory presentation.

  • Self learning, interactive and collaborative learning - Beyond contact teaching hour, students participate in self, interactive and collaborative learning to solve a particular problem, designing a project, or presentation of poster or power point in group.

  • Team work or project management skill- To perform any experiment, students effectively work in team, managing timing and sharing the results and analysis that ultimately leads to final collaborative product.
