Department of Zoology

Since the establishment of KUST in 2001, it has been the utmost need of the area to have quality institution in the field of Sciences particularly in Zoology. Department of Zoology in KUST was established in 2004 with the aim to promote education and research in the Animal World. Since its inception, the Department of Zoology is disseminating the knowledge to undergraduates and graduates with excellent academic preparation and research experience. This Department strives to create an environment that enables teaching and research to attain high levels of excellence in which its members can achieve their full potential.

Vision Department of Zoology

We are a friendly, independent and practice-based teaching Department that dedicates its optimum efforts for the promotion of students to higher education and extends state of the art research facilities in collaboration with national and international community.


Mission Department of Zoology

 

The mission of Department of Zoology is to promote excellence at undergraduate and graduate education cum research. Our understanding of how animals function and interaction has grown tremendously in recent years. New biological insights flood the media and influence everything from medical care to global politics. We in the Department of Zoology address major biological questions through our research. In the Department of Zoology, it believes to focus on integration of basic and applied fields of Zoological Sciences like;  Biodiversity and Wildlife, Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics, Developmental Biology, Animal Physiology, Economic Zoology, Cancer Biology, Microbiology and Techniques in Biotechnology along with specialized areas of knowledge in the fields of Parasitology, Endocrinology, Fisheries and Aqua-culture, Entomology and Virology etc.

The Department has outstanding well-equipped laboratory facilities, which are supported by the University, as well as by grants from the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan and Pakistan Science and Foundation.

The faculty members in the Department work closely with students to help and plan their programs of study, conduct research, and pursue special internship opportunities to ensure their academics cum carrier counseling. A very large percentage of our undergraduates are admitted to professional and graduate schools or they acquire rewarding jobs in the biological sciences. Likewise, our graduate students have excellent success at acquiring faculty and research positions in colleges and universities, as well as employment in research laboratories, government agencies, and private firms etc.
