M. Sc. Microbiology

Microbiologists work for a variety of employers, i.e government, county health departments, and academic institutions. They may also be employed by pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology firms, food and beverage industries, and manufacturing companies.

Many microbiologists conduct research in laboratories, as well as work in offices, where they write up the results of their experiments. Academic microbiologists often teach classes, in addition to conducting their own research.

  1. I am a holder of a Bachelors Degree in Veterinary Medicine- BVM, and wish to pursue a Msc. Microbiology given an opportunity. Am currently a Lecturer in one University. Is it possible to carry on with such a course while holding my job? Or do you offer job opportunities if I enrol for a Msc course? Any work study programme for Masters students?
