Botany

Department of Botany Welcomes You

          Vjaya Mahantesh Vidya Vardhak Sangha, Hungund is one of the pioneer and reputed educational organizations in this area. The Sangha started the college in the year 1967 with noble cause of providing higher education to economically and educationally backward rural population of this area. The management was kind enough to include science faculty right from the inception of the college that is 1967. Knowing the importance of life science Botany  subject was introduced in the establishment year itself (1967) and taught in this college under the integrated course of Biology in PUC & B.Sc I classes.

        Botany  was introduced as minor subject in the year 1969, to have a better combination in the science faculty. The Botany subject was taught as minor for 21 years. At that time ours was the only college in the Taluka that had a facility for students to offer Botany  subjects in the higher education. The students studied in this Department had good opportunity of joining services in Sericulture department. Students offered Botany subject as minor bagged ranks in the University examinations as here under.

VISION

  • In this modern world, the old system of teaching classical Botany is gradually losing its charm. We would like to make the subject more attractive by way of adopting new methodology in teaching using OHP and computer CDs etc.
  • The department contemplates to start some environment related and applied Botany courses in coming years. Further the department would like to keep pace with rapid development in the field of Botany such as biotechnology, horticulture , harvest technology well as flowery culture .
  • The department intends to undertake project for the study of biodiversity of this region.
  • The department would like to convince the agriculturists to undertake practices of Vermiculture, and Apiculture.

GOALS & OBJECTIVES OF THE DEPARTMENT

        The prime of the department is to train the students to make their career in Biology and create public awareness about management of natural resources and human population control.

  • To make the students aware of the local fauna
  • To motivate the student to learn the life science to make their career in Medical science, Agriculture, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Pharmacy.
  • Inviting the teachers and students of primary and secondary education to visit the department.
  • Supply of the preserved and dissected Zoology specimen to near by schools/ colleges.
  • In association with college science forum, local KRVP unit, Health department, Forest department etc, arranging lectures on different aspects.
  • To train the students in the field of zoology for competitive examinations.
  • To persuade the people of this area to undertake practice of agro based sericulture.
  • To popularize Vermicomposting and organic forming.
  • To train the students to participate in the competitions of science exhibitions.
