About Department


The department of Zoology is established in 1983. The department has run the zoology course for B.Sc. (I , II and III)  and M.Sc. (I and II) classes. Through enquiry, exploration and experiential learning, the department aims to produce graduates fully conversant with biological principles and rigorously trained in skills of reasoning, hypothesis generation, reading and writing, and practical techniques, so that they are competent and versatile in dealing with future demands. 
The department aims to promote varied academic and research programs focused on contemporary issues and basic and applied concepts in Zoology, with particular emphases on the ecology, evolution, physiology, genetics, developmental biology, cell biology and molecular biology and aim to provide consultative expertise in solving problems relating to interactions among humans, plants, animals and the environment.
The department also runs the various short term courses of Vermitechnology and Apiculture. The aim to start this applied courses to provide job and self-employment among the students.
The percentage of results of university examinations of the department is always more than the university results and it approximately 100 percentage every year.
The department has two separate laboratories for B.Sc. students and they are well equipped with advance research instruments viz. PCR, GEL Doc, Electrophoresis unit, etc.
