This Department started in the year 1982 for the students those love nature and animal world. The department has run basic and applied undergraduate courses. As the Head of the Department of Zoology & staff, we share as much, if not more, the enthusiasm and optimism of our students. It is imperative to instil in our students a culture that promotes performance-oriented endeavours. Our teaching is linked to our research expertise in field of modern zoological techniques, and taught by experts on a wide range of animals from crustaceans and insects, through to fish, birds and mammals.
The department has modern facilities for studying terrestrial insects, birds, fish and aquatic invertebrates and has state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for analysis of biological materials and molecular genetics. Our students have a wide array of employment opportunities. These include positions in local, national and international industries, addressing issues that range from conservation and management of natural resources through to medical, veterinary or agricultural research. Opportunities also exist in research and education at universities and research institutes. We also provide training in transferable skills, such as data analysis, project planning, critical thinking and written and spoken communication, consultancy which are useful in whatever career direction you choose.
