The Microbiology Department is dedicated to providing contemporary quality undergraduate education in several areas of the biological sciences, including pre-medical biology to science education. The structure of the programme ensures that students are exposed to courses that will prepare them for careers in all areas of microbiology. The laboratory experiences offered by the department require that students develop competencies in the use of modern microbiological techniques, and in the analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data.
The need to make available an information brochure for the Department is very vital in sharing information amongst students on the function and structure of the Department. This information is important for students to be conversant with the courses, course codes, credit units, admission requirements, examination and general registration procedures.
Currently, the Department offers a B.Sc. Microbiology programme. Details of this undergraduate degree programme are listed in this handbook. A complement of the Departmental officers is also included in this handbook presentation.
The information in this handbook is recommended for students in order to have original information about the Department.
