Scope of Microbiology
Microbiologists today are in huge demand in a number of industries and sectors across the world. Not being limited to just one, here are the most in-demand fields and areas where the scope of microbiology is visibly high:

  • Food Microbiology

  • Environmental Science

  • Healthcare and Medicine

  • Genetic Engineering

  • Agro-chemistry biotechnology

  • Pollution control boards

  • Biorefineries

  • Hospitals 

  • Universities

  • Research Centres

  • Forensic Labs

Eligibility Criteria
a) Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) with Pre-Medical or equivalent with Biology with 50% marks.
b) DAE in relevant field are eligible

Healthcare Sector

Bacteria and other microbes are used to manufacture various Antibiotics and synthesize vitamins which is essential for the body. They are also used for gene therapy for treating genetic diseases. This is why the scope of microbiology in this field is increasing. 


As discussed, the scope of microbiology is not only restricted to certain specific fields but has applications in other sectors too. A pharmacologist is one such profession where microbiologists are in demand. Identifying and analyzing the link between living components and substances so as to formulate new medicinal products is the main task of such professionals. 


With applications in almost every sector, nanotechnology courses encompass the elements of chemistry, biology, physics, pharmacology, microbiology, etc. From identifying and finding solutions to infectious diseases to water and sewage treatment, the scope of Microbiology by working as a Nanotechnologist is immense.

Biomedical Scientist

Normally working in the laboratories, a biomedical scientist collaborates with healthcare professionals such as doctors or pharmacists to diagnose and manage various diseases, through a collection of various fluids, biopsies, and other samples.

Forensic Scientist

The scope of microbiology is also visible in Forensic Sciences. These professionals apply analytical and scientific knowledge and techniques to inspect the evidence from the crime scenes and prepare a legal statement for the court cases. They are mostly involved in either laboratory analysis or crime scene investigations.
