It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you all to the Department of Microbiology at the University of Dhaka. Established in 1979 under the visionary leadership of the late Professor Dr. Anwarul Azim Chowdhury, our department has been steadfast in its mission to provide top-tier education and pioneering research in the field of Microbiology.

Our journey began with a modest MS program, catering to a small group of dedicated students. A decade later, in 1989, we proudly launched our Bachelor program, marking a significant milestone in our growth. Today, we offer a comprehensive suite of programs, including a four-year Bachelor of Science (BS), a one-year Master of Science (MS), as well as M. Phil and Ph.D. degrees.

The Department of Microbiology is renowned for its commitment to excellence in education and research. Our graduates are highly sought after, finding esteemed positions in academic and research institutions, government agencies, and various industries. We take pride in the robust collaborations we have fostered with national and international universities, industries, and research organizations.
