The history of the Department of Animal Science folded with university establishment in 1958. Our department started to accept B.Sc. students in 1968, M.Sc. students in 1993 and Ph.D. students in 2007. The mission of the Department of Animal Science is to discover and disseminate new knowledge about the biology and management of domestic animals; apply this knowledge to benefit society through the efficient, humane, and environmentally responsible use of animals for food, companionship, and recreation; and educate students for careers in animal biology and management. The department is devoted to undergraduate and graduate teaching, research and extension that focus mostly on the biology and management of domestic animals. Our department advises and offers a large and diverse curriculum to more than 1000 undergraduate majors (B.Sc.) and about 70 graduate students (M.Sc. and Ph.D.). The Animal Science major offers an opportunity to apply animal biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and other life sciences to the study of Animal breeding and genetics, Animal nutrition, Animal physiology, and Animal farms management in M.Sc. and Poultry and Ruminant nutrition in Ph.D.
