Department of Botany

The Department of Botany at Kohat University of Science & Technology was established in 2005. Iniitially the department was started in a very small building of only three rooms but during its first decade, the department has developed a large & productive research & teaching group in the field of Botany.

Currently, the department has well furnished classrooms and laboratories to fulfill the academic requirements of the undergraduate and graduate students. The department offers a wide range of courses to cater the human resource requirement for teaching and research in the field of Biological Sciences.

Our faculty members are working in many specialized fields of Plant Science such as Plant Ecology, Plant Physiology, Plant Taxonomy, Ethnomedicinal studies, Palynology, Palaecology, Molecular Biology and Plant Genetics.

During a short period of time, the department has completed many research projects with the support of national & international funding organizations & several research projects are in progress.

The department is planning to establish a Botanical garden & Herbarium which will help to provide variety of services to local community and will build a base to our department at national & international level for research.

Vision Statement BOTANY

To be a centre of excellence in Plant Sciences

To explore and protect the Plant world

 

Mission Statement BOTANY

To attract and support the outstanding faculty and students to sustain our vision.
