A Bachelor of Science degree is a more specialized degree in technical or science related fields and inspires deep analytical comprehension, and innovative thinking.

Microbiology was introduced in the UG curriculum of the University of Calcutta in the year 1997 as a job-oriented inter-disciplinary course, keeping in mind the high demand of microbiologists at that time in a wide arena like health sector, dairy industry, processed food and beverages industry, pharmaceutical industry, animal husbandry as well as in agriculture and Biotechnological industries, apart from academic sector. However, the trend started to shift as most of the students graduating from this discipline chose higher education, including research, as their career path. Accordingly, the syllabus taught under the UG course has been moulded quite a few numbers of times to serve this dual objective of a job centric education as well as to cater the needs of an aspiring academician.
