Program Outcomes (B. Sc.)

Students get trained in various areas of plant sciences and enhance their skills. They understand the basics of botany and fundamental processes of plants. They learn to carry out practical work in the lab as well as in the field.  They understand the environmental issues and their impact on society. Students learn to communicate through various electronic modes and express themselves effectively.

  • Understand the basic concepts of Cell Biology, Ecology, Microbiology, Genetics and Plant Breeding along with Morphology, Anatomy, Embryology and Physiology of plants.
  • Identify the plants on the basis of taxonomic characters and learn the economic importance of plants and their uses for social welfare.
  • Learn the classification and characteristics of Algae, Fungi, Bryophyta, Pteridophyta, and Gymnosperms as well as identify plant diseases on the basis of their symptoms and learn control measures.

 

Program Outcomes (M. Sc.- Botany)

After completing Post Graduation in Botany the students get equipped with subject domain knowledge and technical skills pertaining to plants in a holistic manner. Practical application of theoretical concepts is taught with substantial coverage of practical and field works. They have exposure to the latest technologies that are currently used in the subject. The students become competent in various analytical, molecular and technical skills related to botany and learn applications of the instrumentation. It makes them capable of performing short research projects in botany and develops scientific temperament and research aptitude. The students are able to qualify competitive exams like NET, SET and GATE.

  • Learn diversity and classification of Algae, Fungi, Bryophytes, Pteridophytes and Gymnosperms as well as learn isolation and culture of Fungi and Algae.
  • Understand the ultrastructure and function of cell membranes, cell to cell communications, signal transduction and evolution.
  • Understand principles of taxonomy and are able to prepare artificial keys for easy identification of plants.
  • Gain knowledge on the concept of plant pathology and microbiology.
  • Learn the internal structure and their morphological development of plants through advanced microscopic techniques.
  • Acquire basic proficiency in common lab techniques of molecular biology.
  • Acquire advanced knowledge of plant physiology and biochemistry.
  • Get deep insight into plant tissue culture, genetic engineering and phytochemistry.
  • Understand molecular and physiological adaptations in plants in response to biotic and abiotic stress.

Career opportunities

They can be employed by various recruiting companies, agencies and organizations like: Central Council for Research in Homeopathy, Wildlife Institute of India, Forest Research Institute, Union Public Service Commission, Recruitment for Research Associate (Botany), Botanical Survey of India, Indian Agricultural Research Institute and Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFR) etc.

After completing Graduation and Post-graduation from Botany students can pursue their career as Taxonomist, Agriculturist, Researcher, Curator (Herbarium), Cell biologist, Entrepreneur, Florist, Ecologist, Forestry consultant, Laboratory Assistant, Nursery Operator, Research Assistant, Soil Scientist, University Professor.

The Department prepared a book “Plants in the campus” describing various fruit trees, ornamental, seasonal, indoor and wild plants present in the college campus.
