Though being one of the youngest and one and only science department which have the PG course, faculties of this department carried the outstanding research background. This prestigious department has won the minor project from the government of Uttar Pradesh. Thus, enhancing the research infrastructure and helping to maintain its eminent position. Department of Zoology is very rich in strength of students. Department organizes different academic and extra-cocurricular activities for all round development of students. We encourage students for participation in various modules of competitions like, Speech, Debate, Model preparation (Best out of Waste), poster competition, essay writing and extempore.
