Zoology is a combination of various disciplines such as Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, toxicology, Genetics, Physiology, Ecology, Developmental Biology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Entomology, Freshwater Biology, Fisheries, and Wildlife etc. This subject has significant role in human resources development, food security, environmental conservation, sustainable development and ultimately in alleviation of poverty. The Department of Zoology, a discipline of Sciences was established in 2015 and holds a critical position in the Faculty of Sciences. The Department right from its beginning has been teaching at BS, M. Sc and M. Phil level.
To raise the Department as School of Animal Sciences including all important components like Entomology, Parasitology, Molecular Genetics, Molecular Biology, Endocrinology, Genetic engineering, Fisheries and aquaculture, Vertebrate pest control, Ecological Museum & Animal House.
· To create an environment that enables teaching and research to attain high levels of excellence.
· To provide experimental management of animals for the betterment of humanity, biological control of insects and vertebrate pests.
· To produce innovative graduates and postgraduates in areas of Zoology including Entomology, Molecular Genetics, Molecular Biology and Parasitology that contributes to the development for national and international scenarios.
· To initiate more research projects.
· To work in collaboration with national and international organizations in the field of life sciences.
