Microbiology for Engineers Lab
Principles of microbiology, including physiology, metabolism, genetics and ecology. Exploresfundamental microbial processes and their environmental significance and application in environmental engineering. Lab is associated with lecture course to provide laboratory skills in basic and applied microbiology. Graduate-level requirements include a mandatory assignment in which course participants isolate and characterize microorganisms with specific metabolic activity. Students establish materials and methods required for the assignment individually. The assignments result in written report and oral presentation.
