About Us



About us:

The Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology, North South University comprises of three disciplines of Applied Life Science: Biochemistry, Microbiology and Biotechnology. The department also offer two General Education courses (GED), Biology and Chemistry for students of other discipline. The research-oriented fields of biology give the knowledge of living systems, ranging from whole organisms up to molecular and atomic levels, that we eventually apply to improve the quality of life. Living in the era of modern biology, the demand for the basic and up-to-date knowledge of life sciences is of the greatest. With this view, the Department of Biochemistry & Microbiology provides students with an excellent opportunity to obtain quality education in biochemistry, microbiology, biotechnology, molecular genetics, bioinformatics and immunology. Students get both a breadth of knowledge as well as in-depth training in a specific area of research to prepare them completely for a promising career in biological science.

Career in Biochemistry and Biotechnology

The solutions to some of the most urgent problems in the present world, such as those in food production, medicine and the environment and the clues to some of life’s most fundamental questions depend on the application of biochemical knowledge. The emerging biotechnology sector both nationally and regionally will increase the demand for personals with significant training in biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics. The department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology provides a broad education to meet that challenge. It also provides practical experience and technical training in a rapidly expanding area where skills are in short supply. A degree in Biochemistry and Biotechnology provides students with the training they need to become part of the broad biotechnology and life sciences industries at home and abroad. They can also pursue a research career at the emerging National Institute of Biotechnology in Bangladesh or at Universities and Research Institutes of the advanced West. 

Career in Microbiology

As a microbiologist, you will work with many other scientists and have a vast range of opportunities. Microbiologists work in almost every industry and have many different responsibilities. After being specialized in an area you can be bacteriologists, biochemists, biotechnologists, cell biologists, geneticist, parasitologist, mycologists, virologists, a teacher or an industrialist.  This subject is related to almost all life science subjects as all researches are done with microorganisms.  Microbiologists have a high demand on Hospitals, Research laboratories, Food industries, Biotech companies, drug companies/pharmaceuticals.

* Credits for courses with this grade do not apply towards graduation.

** Credits for courses with this grade do not apply towards graduation and they are not accepted in the calculation of the grade point average.

 

The exact cut off points for assigning letter grades is at the discretion of individual instructor. The same applies to the assignment of + or – after a letter grade. It is meant to give more flexibility so that shades of performance can be distinguished and rewarded. The + and – has a value of 0.3 grade point.

 

Grade point average

Students' grade point averages are numerical values obtained by dividing the total grade points earned by the credit attempted. Only courses graded A, A-, B, B-, C+, C-, D-, D and F are used to determine credits attempted. Only the grades earned in the courses that are required for a degree are included in the GPA calculation. Grades earned in the other courses are reported on the transcript but are not counted in calculated GPA.

GPA- class equivalent

NSU students are graded on GPA. Comparison of the GPA earned by NSU student to the Classes earned by students in other universities in the country is as follows:

                        GPA 3.00 and above  = First class

                        GPA 2.50 to 2.99       = Second class

                        GPA 2.00 to 2.49       = Third class

 

Grade change

Grade change is strongly discouraged. Letter grades may be changed only for posting error or errors in calculation. If a grade change is inevitable, it must be completed within one semester following the submission of the grade. The program directors and department chairs will ask for necessary papers and records to substantiate the grade change.

 

Incomplete (I)

The grade of incomplete (I) may be used in special circumstances. The incomplete may be given only at the end of a semester to a student whose work is progressing, but who has left unfinished a small amount of work for completion without further class attendance. The instructor must file with register an incomplete Grade from describing the work to be completed, indicating a tentative final grade to be assigned if the work is not completed and the time period in which the work must be completed (no longer than the following semester). The student has the responsibility to take initiative in completing the work and is expected to make up the incomplete as specified by the instructor. If action is not taken the "I" grade will revert to the tentative final grade. The final grade becomes an "F" if no tentative grade is assigned. In the event the instructor from whom a student received an incomplete is not available, the disposition of a case involving an incomplete grade resides with the Head of the Department. The grade "I" must be replaced within one semester after the grade is assigned.

 

Withdrawal (W)

The grade Withdrawal (W) is assigned when a student officially drops a course during the period between end of third and sixth weeks. Prior to that time if a student drops a course no entry is made on the academic record. A "W" does not affect the student's GPA.

 

Retaking courses

Students may choose to repeat a course, but such repetition will be allowed for only once in each course. The current policy regarding retaking courses is as follows:

(a)  A student may retake a course/s if the grade is B (plain) or lower.
(b)  The chance will be given only once for a course.
(c)  The best grade will be counted for CGPA calculation.
(d)  The above policy will be applicable to all students (graduate / undergraduate) studying at
      NSU.


When a student retakes a course in which s/he must apply not to include the "F" grade(s) in her CGPA calculation. An "F" grade earned in any credit course will be used to calculate CGPA until the course is retaken and an application is submitted. The retake policy in case of courses with "F" grades will apply immediately to all students at NSU irrespective of their date of enrolment. Students who wish to retake a course again will be assessed tuition and applicable fees. A prescribed retake form is available in the registers office. Students must fill it out and submit it to the Registers office.

 

Abandoning course

Grade F will be recorded for students who have not fulfilled academic obligations and have not obtained a grade, and for students who abandon their course without officially withdrawing from a course.

 

Required GPA for Degree

Undergraduate: The student requires 2.5 CGPA for getting BSc degree.

Graduate: The student requires 3.0 CGPA for getting MSc degree.

 

** For Graduate student having CGPA lower than 3.2 might not be included in thesis group by the department.

 

Probation

Probation will be given to the student having CGPA lower than 2.0 for both Undergraduate and Graduate programs. Probation is count as a warning to the student to increase his/her CGPA. Student will be given three consecutive semesters to increase his/her CGPA to 2.0.  After third probation student will be dismissed from the program.
