This programme provides a thorough general training in the physiology, ecology and biotechnological applications of microorganisms. We focus particularly on microbes as producers, as spoilage agents of food, as components of the environment, and as agents of disease, with emphasis on new and emerging diseases.
The programme aims to provide knowledge and understanding of the microbiological sciences, and sufficient training in scientific methods and procedures to advance to a career in relevant industries, postgraduate training or other spheres of research.
We are still accepting applications for September 2018.
