The course is designed to equip students with the modern technological skills especially in microbiological techniques at the sub-professional level. Areas of study include the application of micro-organisms such as virus, bacteria and fungi in relation to their importance to mankind.
The department of microbiology is well equipped with the general science laboratories plus specialized laboratories devoted to areas in microbiology such as virology, bacteriology, mycology and industrial microbiology. In addition, the biochemistry and instrumental analysis laboratories and computers are also provided for data handling and analysis of students' project and research purposes.
Alternatively, for those who choose to further their studies they can do so locally or abroad. Most U.K. and accredited U.S.A. universities accept the graduates into 2nd and 3rd year respectively, with substantial credits transfer.
