Programme overview

The Ph.D. in Agricultural Entomology programme at Rabindranath Tagore University is a minimum 3-year doctorate programme that gives students advanced subject knowledge of entomology. A Ph.D. in agricultural entomology is also an excellent option for those who want to break out of academia. Even those who want to work for themselves may find it difficult to find a job. However, a PhD will give them the skills and expertise to enter a non-academic field. A Ph.D. will help you stand out from the crowd. Your skills will make you more employable, which means your salary will increase and your status will increase. In addition, you will have more opportunities in the fields of research, teaching, and extension.

How will you benefit

There are many benefits to studying this course in terms of knowledge, and it benefits students to know about the various branches of entomology.
It makes students talented to provide innovations for various issues that are coming up in insect pest management.
Students gain knowledge and skills in IPM practises, pest identification, insect behaviour, toxicology, and applying agricultural practises based on entomology.
The advent of contemporary agricultural techniques has opened doors for the appointment of recent scholars, giving the course a broad scope in terms of employment and career options. Another choice is to take research-level courses.

What will you study

Teach advanced entomology concepts to students.

Foster top-quality scholars for societal impact.

Advance Nation: research in agriculture, environment, and insects

Pest management boosts postgraduate opportunities.

  • PO1: Farmers: Insects devour or damage crops and food products. Entomologists maintain the world's best agricultural production.
  • PO2: Veterinary entomologists protect livestock from insect-spread diseases.
  • PO3: Teachers: Entomology is used in the classroom to teach fundamental concepts and principles of entomology.
  • PO4: Scientists: Entomologists have contributed much to our current understanding of inheritance, physiology, life cycle, behaviour, and ecology through their study of insects.
  • PO5: Environmentalists: Entomologists research environmental indicators to learn more about how people and nature interact. Entomologists seek to preserve the environment and restore damaged habitats by detecting endangered species and researching their ecosystems.
  • PO6: Pesticide Industries: Entomologists are highly required in the field of pesticide industries.
  • PO7: Pest control, eventually leading to better agricultural output.
  • PO8: Extension officer

  • PSO1: Specific knowledge of various branches of advanced entomology and pest management
  • PSO2: Detailed knowledge on the subject will improve the farmer’s condition through their contributions.
  • PSO3: Detailed knowledge of pest identification, insecticides, molecular entomology and their modes of action, biocontrol, beneficial insects, advanced insect physiology, ecology, and applied entomology of all sciences is available to farmers.
  • PSO4: Find out the novel technique for farmers welfare.
  • PSO5: Use appropriate scientific and statistical methods and evaluations for decision-making in various sectors of agriculture.

  • PEO1: The students will receive modern ideas and practical skills in the field of advanced entomology.
  • PEO2: Students learn entomology, and this produces qualified and effective human resources for conducting relevant research on agricultural, ecological pest management, and natural resource management.
  • PEO3: To innovate a different idea of pest management for farmers
  • PEO4: To identify the most recent pest issues and find novel solutions.
