About the Department

Microbiology department has started on 4th August 1981 under leadership of Smt B S Kudva. Mrs Bhatiya, Mrs Mohrikar, Mrs Limaye were other pillars of the department. Department provides undergraduate degree course in Microbiology. In the academic year 2015-16 , a fresh new team of teachers were appointed ,enriching the department with immense hardwork and sincerity under the able guidance of Mrs Bharati Kudva. The current team compromises of Dr. Shilpa Jadhav, Mrs Tejashree Kadu, Ms Snehal Dabhade and Mrs  Sukhada Mulik. Microbiology scholars are trained through subject related environmental projects , summer training programmes, industrial visit etc apart from academics. Department recently started with event named 'Microfiesta' in 2014 to encourage student's creative ability through scientific model making competition.

About the Subject

Microbiology is study of micro organisms. Bacteria, yeast, fungi , viruses are studied under this subject. Microbiology is versatile subject whose applications ranges from Industrial, Pharmaceutical Medical, Genetics, food and dairy etc. Research, teaching , medical testing, food testing , quality control, quality this subject. Thus students pursuing the subject get absorbed in areas of Fermentation industries, Vaccine production , Clinical data management, Medical institutes, Agriculture and Research institues Biotechnology  and pharama industries.

It's an intricate question that often ponders my mind as Why I chose to be a Teacher. Is it the passion and love for my subject Microbiology makes me more inclined towards teaching or fulfilment and content that I see on my students face ; after a lecture makes me be in this profession forever.

A Teacher affects eternity he can never tell where his influence stops. It's a truly noble cause. 

I aspire to do research, as process of learning is continuous. My field of interest is Applied Microbiology. My ambition is to start small research project at undergraduate level which can spark research awareness and inclination amongst young minds of Sathaye college.
