Aims & Objectives
Biological Science Programme
The programme is designed to offer the opportunity for a general intellectual knowledge and skills required for graduates to function effectively in society after their university education.
The syllabus seeks to achieve this objective through a diversification of the course structure which enables students to explore main interest subjects whilst allowing them the opportunity to develop new interest and specialisation as they progress.
The major and the allied courses have been tailored to provide basic scientific knowledge, which at the same time meets the needs of society.
A strong linkage between classroom work and methods and technologies for solving specific problems is envisaged. Courses in communicative skills and general education are intended to broaden students’ outlook for a satisfactory application of their scientific knowledge and to promote the development of all areas of national life.
Train students to have enhanced capacity to fit into careers such as involved in Molecular Biology, food and fermentation biology, pathology, parasitology, entomology, conservation biology, pollution, prevention and abatement, ecosystems protection, restoration and management of aquatic and terrestrial environments etc.
Environmental Science Programme
The Environmental Science degree programme aims at offering an inter-disciplinary approach to the deepening of knowledge in the natural sciences including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geology, Physical Geography etc in relation to issues of the environment. It is designed to:
Develop students’ knowledge and understanding of the systems, changes that characterize and govern the structure, function and interaction of the atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere.
Upgrade and develop students’ skills in the use of scientific methods and process for which knowledge is advancing in Environmental Science for improvement of quality of life.
To have enhanced knowledge to be able to identify major environmental problems; their causes and consequences.
Identify and evaluate human influences on natural processes of earth systems and assess the extent of environmental problems and ways to address them in the future.
Allow students to develop skills and the interdisciplinary understanding needed to deal with environmental issues.
Train students to have enhanced capacity to fit into careers such as involved in conservation biology, pollution, prevention and abatement, ecosystems protection, restoration and management of aquatic and terrestrial environments.
