Presently there is a revolution in the scientific knowledge and this can be called as “Scientific Revolution”. Among the scientific disciplines of biological sciences, Microbiology is one of the most important fields, particularly in Pakistan where it is contributing in a wide spectrum of areas including Medicine, Dairy, Poultry, Agriculture and Industry.
Although, the subject of Microbiology has been introduced since long, but the demand from on-job personnel has never been fulfilled in the past. Due to rapid increase in the country’s population and based on a great demand from the in-service employees working in public and private institutions, a BS programme in the subject of Microbiology has already been introduced. Now, to cater the need of graduates in relevant disciplines, an MSc program is being proposed. This programme is designed with an aim to
• Fulfill the gap of trained manpower in the discipline of Microbiology.
• Strengthen the on-going research projects being run in the country in microbiology-related disciplines.
• Create awareness among the students regarding new research techniques and modern approaches applicable in the field of Microbiology to address the challenges in the fields of Medicine, Dairy, Poultry, Agriculture and Industry
