Description & Strategy

Microbiology is one of the fastest-growing sciences that studies bacteria, yeasts, molds, protozoa, microalgae, and viruses. Microbes are cosmopolitan, associate, and play a very important role in the cycle of elements and energy in ecosystems that can harm or benefit living things and their environment. By studying and understanding microbes, humans can solve many problems, from those affecting human health to environmental problems, climate change, food, industry, and agriculture. In addition, many significant scientific discoveries were made by microbiologists and won Nobel prizes. Therefore, a professional microbiologist can be employed and needed in many job sectors with various roles.
