Department of Animal Sciences was established in the early 1980’s to train students capable of properly managing livestock and poultry farms, and join science with practice in animal science. The mission of this department is to expand and transfer knowledge for continuous improvement of the animal husbandry to support human population with sufficient quantity and quality of safe food such as egg, milk, meat and other animal products.
The bachelor degree in Animal Science with either livestock or poultry majors prepares undergraduate students for professions in livestock or poultry production and breeding. At the graduate level, the department offers professional courses to support master majors in animal and poultry nutrition, genetics and breeding, physiology and management of livestock and poultry farms. At the doctoral level, admitted students can major in ruminant nutrition, poultry nutrition, reproductive, growth and digestive physiology, as well as animal breeding. Some 17 faculty and staff members supports a body of about 150 students at different graduate levels.
- Animal Breeding and Genetics
- Ruminant Nutrition
- Poultry Nutrition
- Animal Physiology
- Management of Livestock and Poultry Farms
The degree program at the baccalaureate level is designed for students preparing for professional careers in animal or poultry farms, feed factories, and for further graduate training in Animal Science.
Undergraduate students must take credit hours in general courses, 55 credit hours in basic science courses, 64 credit hours in obligatory courses, and 21 credit hours in elective courses (140 credits in total) to qualify for the Degree of B.Sc. in Animal Science.
