MIC 201 Microbial Chemistry
MIC 202 Microbial Metabolism (Eq.-BTE 202)
MIC 203 Environmental Microbiology (Eq.-BTE 304)
MIC 204 Medical Microbiology
BTE 207 Introduction to Molecular Biology (Eq.-BTE 203)
BCH 301 Basic Immunology (Eq.-BTE 303)
MIC 301 Virology (Eq.- BTE 411)
MIC 302 Food Microbiology (Eq.-BTE 309)
BTE 401 Bioinformatics*
MIC 401 Microbial Genetic Engineering (Eq.-BTE 204)
Elective Courses (12 Credits):

MIC 304 Microbial Biotechnology*
MIC 307 Microbiology of Frozen Food and Fish
BTE 312 Computer Application in Biotechnology*
BTE 315 Bioremediation and Biodeterioration*
BTE 403 DNA Fingerprinting and Molecular Diagnostics*
MIC 408 Extremophiles
* refers to courses common for undergraduate microbiology and biotechnology programmes.
‘Eq.’ refers to equivalent courses for undergraduate microbiology and biotechnology programmes.
Internship (3 credits):
The internship should be in line with one of the majors or on some interactive topic involving the two majors.
Thesis/ Project (4 Credits):
The thesis/project work should be in line with one of the majors or on some interactive topics involving the two majors.
Lab (6 credits):
As students who are doing major in biotechnology will be doing 4 different lab courses that include most of the major practical oriented problems of microbiology so they are exempted from doing any extra lab course in microbiology.
