Microbiology is a branch of biology that deliberates on the existence, role and application of microscopic organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, algae and archae. The Microbiology Programme completes students’ understanding on microbial diversity (bacteriology, mycology and virology), handling and management of microorganisms, activities at the cellular and molecular level and relationship/interaction between microorganisms. The importance of microbes in industries, environment, medicine, ecology, agriculture and food is also discussed. Microbiology involves and unites other fields of biosciences and is the core for biotechnology. The Programme endeavours to generate undergraduates with knowledge and the ability to expand microbiology for the well-being of society.
