  • PO1 - The programme also works across related majors within the M.Sc. Zoology programme.
  • PO2 - Aware students about knowledge and skill in the fundamentals and systematics of the animal kingdom
  • PO3 - Distinguish between the structure, function, behaviour, and evolution of different animals.
  • PO4 - For instance, if you major in zoology, you can still take courses from other complementary fields.
  • PO5 -  Apply the wide range of subject-based skills to various fields that provide a base for future careers in disciplines such as Health Sciences, Agriculture, Environmental Management, Biotechnology, Publishing, teaching, and research.
  • PO6 - Perform, assess, and implement practical techniques and procedures to solve biological problems and analyse and quantify the data collected during any project.
  • PO7 - Understand the applications of biological techniques to various fields of biology.
  • PO8 - When you graduate with a Master of Science (Zoology), you will have learned how to work at a high level of academic achievement. Work to deadlines under pressure and communicate effectively.

  • PSO1 - Acquire knowledge on the various aspects of life sciences, including cell biology, genetics, taxonomy, physiology, applied zoology, general embryology, and public health.
  • PSO2 - Understand good laboratory practises and safety; carry out experimental techniques and methods in Physiology, Cell biology, pathology, Genetics, Applied Zoology, Biological techniques, Toxicology, Entomology, Sericulture, Biochemistry, and microtomy. 
  • PSO3 - Understand the applications of biological sciences in Biotechnology, Apiculture, Fisheries, Aquaculture, agriculture, and vermiculture.
  • PSO4 - The students gained the knowledge to use modern, sophisticated equipment and tools.
  • PSO5 - Recognise the scientific facts behind natural phenomena.
  • PSO6 -  Apply the wide range of subject-based skills to various fields that provide a base for future careers in disciplines such as Health Sciences, Agriculture, Environmental Management, Biotechnology, Publishing, teaching, and Research.

  • PEO1 - Students will have in-depth knowledge of animal structure, function, evolution, classification, behavior, ecology, and physiology. 
  • PEO2 - Graduates will possess critical thinking abilities to evaluate and address complex zoological problems and challenges. 
  • PEO3 - Students will demonstrate a commitment to the ethical treatment of animals, conservation of biodiversity, and the sustainable use of natural resources. 
  • PEO4 - Students will also demonstrate proficiency in scientific writing, presenting research results, and engaging in scientific discussions.
  • PEO5 - They will be prepared for roles such as zoologists, wildlife biologists, researchers, educators, conservationists, and policymakers, contributing to the understanding and conservation of animal life and habitats.
