PO13 : Problem analysis

PO14 : Conduct investigations of complex problems

PO15 : Design/Development of Solutions

PO16 : Individual and Teamwork

PSO1 : Significance towards Molecular level: The Physiology, Biochemistry, and Genetics of microorganisms, including such topics as structure, function, diversity, metabolism, and the genetics of metabolic regulation can approach to molecular microbial level.

PSO2 : Significance towards Microbial Pathogenesis: the immune response and disease-causing microorganisms, including aspects of the humoral, cell-mediated and non-specific immune responses, as well as the molecular basis for pathogenesis

PSO3 : Significance towards Environment: the taxonomic, ecological, and genetic relationships among microorganisms, including such topics as nutrient cycling, microbial diversity, and the biotechnological application of microorganisms can solve environmental problems.

PSO4 : Significance towards Industry: This topic helps to learn manipulating organisms in order to yield a specific product such as antibiotics, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, solvents, alcohol and daily products. They can also be used in an agricultural application and use them as a bio-pesticide instead of using harmful chemicals or as inoculants and help plant proliferation.

PSO5 : Relation of Microbiology to other aspects of Science: The curriculum also includes several interdisciplinary topics such as biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, biohydrometallurgy, bioremediation, biodegradation Biostatistics etc. to ensure a wide range of options that allow students to choose modules from various departments that are best suited to their personal interests and career ambitions.

PSO6 : Instruments/Techniques usage: The use of various instruments/ techniques and their optimal usage can elucidate students to gain formal knowledge about the practicals as well as creates an opportunity to explore the further extent.

PSO7 : Scientific Method: hypothesis generation and testing, including the development of theoretical and practical skills in the design and execution of experiments

PSO8 : Scientific Communication: the development and execution of oral and writing skills necessary for effective communication of experimental results, the ability to think critically regarding a discipline topic, and the conveyance of scientific principles to audiences of both scientists and non-scientists.

PSO9 : The study of Microbiology will impart in-depth understanding of basic aspects of microbiological science pertaining to industrial applications. The courses of Industrial Microbiology & Fermentation Technology, Genetic Engineering, Microbial Genetics, Bio-analytical Techniques, Molecular Microbial Physiology, Agriculture & Environmental Microbiology, Animal Biotechnology, and Vaccinology will make the students ready to contribute to Molecular, Biochemical, Industrial, medical and other basic and applied applications of better understanding of the key principles of microbial functioning at an advanced level better awareness of the major issues at the forefront of the discipline will possess an in-depth understanding of the area of Biotechnology chosen for research emphasis ability to design and carry out experiments (safely) and to interpret experimental data production of substantial original research of significance and quality sufficient for publication ability to present their work through written, oral, and visual presentations, including an original research proposal awareness of ethical issues in Biotechnology research and careers options

PEO1 : The objective of the Master’s programme in Biotechnology is to equip the students to apply the knowledge of Industrial and Technical awareness. The laboratory training and Research analysis of Macro and Micro molecules, Industrial training and Hands on work included to prepare the students for their careers to become entrepreneur.

PEO2 : The student have a knowledge of different culture Skill viz Tissue Culture, Blood –Culture, Cell culture. Production of genetically modified new species for research and development.

PEO3 : The goal is to impart student the knowledge and skills which are contemporary and useful to them as well as for society. The student will write the standard operating protocols (SOPs) and identify requirement for experimental organ, ethics and welfare.
