Welcome to Department of Botany

With more than 18 years of expertise, our department has made large forays into the world of R&D and etched an indelible mark in the annals of our college

Faculty Development Programme - "Two Day Workshop on Bioinformatics" (Concluded)

Faculty

One of the pioneer departments of the college established in the year 1993. Striving to cater the needs of the life science students. To expose the students to the latest developments in the field of life sciences. Biotechnology was offered as an elective and later as one of the subject along with Botany.

The department is having adequate highly qualified & well experienced faculty. The faculty members have been updating the knowledge by attending various national & international symposia &workshops

Our Results

The faculty puts in constant effort to identify the strength and weakness of the students and guide them accordingly in their academic planning, implementation and presentation. This has resulted in consistent excellent success rate of the students with the outgoing students pass percentage always being between 95 - 99% (always higher as compared to Osmania University pass percentage) and the students always featuring the Osmania university toppers list.

To empower women and bring their holistic development, the department organizes various activities like symposia, orientation programmes, conferences, National Seminars and exhibitions. These activities helps in personality development of the student, to bring in their inner talent, improve their managerial skills and organizing capabilities and make them environmentally aware and socially committed citizen

Learning Resources

  • The department also maintains a Herbarium.
  • The department is having a web page in the college website and maintains a Blog- “biobotstpious”. The notes for latest topics are provided online to the students and are also encouraged to submit online assignment. Online tests are also conducted
  • The department is also involved in collaborative activities with NGO organizations CEE (Centre for Environment Education, A.P.), Star organization in conducting environment awareness programmes

  • 16-17 Aug 2016: With an aim to evolve an appropriate model of the practical credit system in Biotechnology, a two day FDP on Bioinformatics

Best Practices

  • Department provides certificate courses in Medical coding and Enzymology and further support the students for their placement in health industries
  • Faculty participate actively in organizing as well as attending National seminars and presenting papers to update their Knowledge.
  • Department has the credit of organizing Neighbourhood activities as a regular phenomenon to inculcate social responsibilities among the students

Eco-CLUB

Research & Projects

To inculcate scientific temper in the young minds, the department trains the students in basic research techniques in biotechnology and takes up minor research projects mainly aimed at job oriented industrial training

July 2016: The Dept. acts as a catalyst for students to begin their role as budding environmentalists. Various environmental activities like greening the campus with medicinal herbs, decomposing of kitchen waste into biofertilizers, organic terrace gardening have been carried out. The students carried out minor research projects in “Screening of Microbial Flora” from the water samples of Nacharam area and review of innovations and traditional knowledge practices to cure various ailments.
