Realizing the vast importance of the field of microbiology, the University of Swat established the Department of Microbiology in 2011, later upgraded to the Centre for Biotechnology and Microbiology (CB&M). Due to the immense importance of forensic sciences, the Department of Forensic Sciences at the University of Swat was established in 2014 under the umbrella of CB&M to facilitate the teaching of the basic ideas and concepts of forensic sciences to upcoming forensic scientists and students or persons already associated with the legal field. It is the first department for the subject of forensics in the province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and the first in the country to offer a BS in Forensic Science, the first batch of which has graduated in 2021.
