It is a three-year (six semesters) under-graduate programme, conducted in affiliation to Bengaluru North University.
In this course, chemistry, zoology and microbiology are taught as optional subjects (semesters 1 to 6), with equal emphasis on each of these three subjects. In addition, english language and an optional language are also taught during semesters 1 to 4.
In addition, other subjects like Environment and Public Health, Indian Constitution, are also taught as part of this course curriculum from semester 1 to 4. The practical papers in all three core subjects (Chemistry, Zoology, Microbiology) focuses on experiential learning through custom-designed laboratory experiments.
Chemistry is the study of composition, structure, properties and reactions of matter. Therefore, this study is central to understanding many other scientific disciplines. All human activities deal with the material world which consists of chemicals-both natural and manufactured. Contributions of chemistry to the modern society occur in diverse fields such as pharmaceuticals, polymers, agricultural chemicals, petroleum products, and biotechnology. It also plays an important role in the cleaning up of the environment, improving methods of producing, processing and packaging of food, and making automobiles more safe and fuel-efficient.
Zoology is the study of animals, from the simplest sponges to the most advanced arthropods, molluscs and vertebrates. Some of the major topics covered are: invertebrates, vertebrates, comparative anatomy, cell biology, immunology, environmental biology and ethology, developmental biology and evolution, genetics and biotechnology, animal physiology, and techniques in biology
Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms which include bacteria, algae, fungi, protozoa and viruses. This subject also covers numerous other disciplines such as immunology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology. Microbiology affects almost all aspects of medicine, and is essential for environmental cycles that sustain the planet. There has been growing recognition of the utility of microorganisms in many areas; for example, they are of commercial use in food processing industries and in fermentation, etc. Some of the major aspects covered include basic microbiology and control of microorganisms, microbial taxonomy and culture techniques, microbial physiology and microbial genetics, molecular biology, genetic engineering and biophysics, agricultural and environmental microbiology, food and dairy microbiology, immunology and medical microbiology, industrial microbiology, and microbial technology.
