Dean’s statement

You are warmly welcome to the Faculty of Biological Sciences located within the calm and peaceful environment at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka campus. I am honoured to lead this great faculty during this time. The history of the Faculty of Biological Sciences dates back to 1972 with Professor Njoku-Obi as the pioneer dean. There are currently five departments and along with our devoted technical and administrative support sections, are highly engaged in the training of our students through the three and four-year undergraduate programmes.  Except the department of Genetics and Biotechnology, all the five departments in the faculty have well established programs involving various teaching and research activities that lead to the award of postgraduate degrees (PGD, M.Sc., and Ph.D.) in various specialties within each department. Overall, our faculty is committed to the production of well-motivated and trained graduates who are well prepared to be successful in the various facets of our local as well as global economy.

I enjoin our students to make maximum use of their time in our faculty by utilizing every opportunity that will present to them during their study. Our faculty is blessed with quality teaching and non-teaching staff who are more than ready to provide you with all you need to be very successful in the program. We are blessed to have academic staff who have made major impacts in their field of research locally and globally. Our graduates have access to a wide range of good paying and rewarding careers in all walks of life. I hope that you will enjoy your time while here. The Dean’s office is always open to you all. We want to make sure that your stay here is hitch-free. Good luck in your academic pursuit.
