Zoology & Micro-Biology

Profile

The Department of zoology was established in the year 1954 with BiPC Combination at Intermediate Level. In 1960 BZC was included with English and Telugu medium Combination at UG.

Later, with the advancements of Life Sciences, the Department of Microbiology was established in the year 1997.

Curriculum designed according to Osmania University syllabus.

As a part and parcel of our curriculum we make the syllabi viable to the students by following semester system.

Progression

Effective teaching methodologies are followed by regular assessment for the gainful employment in the next higher levels. Progressive support is rendered towards the welfare of students by facilitating and guiding through various placement cells.
