World Diabetes Day Lecture
The department of Zoology is organizing a lecture on the occasion of World Diabetes Day. It will be held at Marian Hall at 3:30 pm on 14.11.2019. It will be delivered by Dr. Joseph K Joseph, Lakeshore Hospital, Kochi. All are cordially invited.
Department of Zoology was established in 1952 with a B.Sc. degree programme under the Madras University. The M. Sc. programme was launched in 1959. The first batch itself achieved a remarkable record securing the 1st and 2nd ranks in the University. Since then, the department has maintained this good academic tradition. The courses offered are B.Sc in Zoology and M.Sc in Zoology with Environmental Science as specialization. As part of the Golden jubilee celebration of the College, the Department introduced a one-year P.G. diploma course in Aquaculture and it was one of the pioneering attempts of this kind in the State. Now it has grown into an autonomous division. Another important event in the history of the Department was its recognition as a Research Centre by the Mahatma Gandhi University in 1994.
