Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology join service learning initiative

As part of the university’s commitment to engaging with and uplifting our local community, the Science Faculty has developed a “Service Learning” programme involving a number of disciplines, including Biochemistry and Microbiology, Chemistry, Zoology and Entomology, Human Kinetics and Ergonomics, Physics and Electronics and Statistics.
