The department of Animal Science offers both Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programmes. Its Undergraduate Programme leads to the award of Bachelor of Agriculture (B. Agric.) Degree in Animal Science whereas the Postgraduate Programme leads to the awards of Master of Science (M.Sc.) or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in different areas of specialization, including:
Animal Nutrition and Biochemistry, Animal Production and Management, Animal Physiology and Reproduction and Animal breeding and Genetics. The department also offers Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) in Animal Science.
These programmes are designed to fundamentally provide practical-scientific knowledge to deepen the students’ grasp of Animal Production. Hence, the programmes are practically planned to provide students with the necessary techniques and tools of research and thus develop in them the spirit of enquiry and generally prepare them to become solvers of the problems militating against optimal Animal Production.
