Are you exploring the invisible world of microorganisms? Do you have a passion for uncovering the hidden secrets of life on a microscopic scale? M.Sc. in Microbiology course from Institutes under Sha-Shib Group is your path to a learning experience in the realm of the invisible and the extraordinary.

Overview of M.Sc in microbiology

The post-graduation course compiles the world of microorganisms in which students immerse themselves in a fascinating study. In microbiology, life forms are not visible by the naked eye and the course is a study of organisms visible only through a microscope. Microbiology is important in various fields such as medicine, biotechnology and environmental science. Microbiology explores the world of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protists. There is ample laboratory experience for culturing, isolating, and identifying microorganisms, thus facilitating research and learning.


To be eligible for application, candidates must have secured 50% marks in their bachelor's degree and preferably graduated in microbiology itself.

Course Syllabus

The core subjects covered are microbial biology, immunology, virology, mycology, and medical microbiology. The common electives are industry microbiology, environment microbiology, parasitology, food microbiology, clinical microbiology and more..,

Future & Career Prospects

Pursuing a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Microbiology increases the career opportunities and here are few of them:-

Research Scientist:

Microbiologists are at the centre of research. They can find work in academic institutions, international laboratories and private research organisations. They regularly conduct experiments towards gaining knowledge of microorganisms. Discoveries in microbiology lead to breakthroughs in medicine, agriculture, and biotechnology.

Clinical Microbiologist:

The position of clinical microbiology is to diagnose infectious diseases and they can find work in hospitals, clinics and diagnostic laboratories. They also have tasks such as analysing patient samples and advising on treatment plans, supporting public health and patient care.

Pharmaceutical Industry:

This industry has to hire microbiologists to develop new drugs and vaccines for common welfare. Microbiologists have tasks such as research and development, quality control, and regulatory affairs and serving the purpose of safety of pharmaceutical products.

Food Microbiologist:

Food safety has a purpose to ensure products consumed are free from disease causing microorganisms. Food microbiologists judge the food quality and improve food preservation techniques.

Environmental Microbiologist:

Microbiologists study microbial ecosystems that directly impact the environment. Some tasks such as bioremediation, wastewater treatment, and environmental monitoring are administered by environmental microbiology.

Academic and Education:

If you are passionate about sharing acquired knowledge in microbiology to future generations, you can become a professor, lecturer, or science educator with an M.Sc. in Microbiology.
