The Department of Microbiology, Mount Carmel College has always strived towards utilizing scientific knowledge to alleviate various problems faced by our community. Numerous initiatives such as the Germ Control Cell, Blood Grouping and the Dengue Awareness Program intend to do just that.
The Dengue Awareness Program aims at enriching our developing community with the knowledge of the disease, its control and prevention. Starting at the lowest educational level, the students of the Microbiology Association, Microzone seek to tackle the growing problem that India is facing with respect to the inestimable spread of dengue and the inefficiency in its management, through various creative forms of expression.
The Microbiology Department of Mount Carmel College has always believed in academic proficiency through practical exposure. In the year 2016, the Department of Microbiology introduced their new laboratory extension. This was to aid the learning process in the lab by providing the students with a larger and more comfortable work space.
A workshop titled “Little Things, Big Ideas” was instituted in the same year. This brought the students together as an entity to learn basic skills in this field of Biology preparing them for the bacterial world and beyond. The program was conducted in the Microbiology laboratory, providing all the participants access to our state of the art equipment.
The annual Microbiology Newsletter, Microzone, contains a collection of articles pertaining to the field of biology, written by the students of Microbiology. This magazine helps the students understand the latest developments in the scientific world. The Department of Microbiology thus creates various opportunities for students to broader their horizons and realizes their fullest potentials.
About 95 % of the students opt for higher education every year either in National or International Universities.
