Department of Zoology

The Department with its experienced and committed teaching faculty believes in the all-round development of the students. The Department blends classroom teaching with co-curricular activities like lectures from eminent scientists, seminars, symposiums, excursions and intercollege festival CHIMAERA which gives the students a chance to showcase their talents and develop their personality. The department offers basic and applied information in both classical and trendy fields in zoology and has well equipped laboratories where the students get the firsthand knowledge of practical exercises related to these subjects. The department takes pride in one international project (funded by IAEA Vienna, Austria) and another project (funded by DST Govt. of India) besides two Innovation projects funded by University of Delhi awarded to its faculty members. Two faculty members have fully recognized research labs where students can enroll for Ph.D.
