Dean's Message



Welcome to the

Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry a constituent unit of SKUAST- Kashmir came into existence in 1984 with the objective of addressing the much needed requirement of producing trained graduates and post graduates in the field of veterinary and animal husbandry. The teaching, Research and extension in Veterinary and Animal Sciences thus evolved as the three strong pillars of the institution, the fourth being represented by the constant resolve of the faculty to excel despite all odds.

I’m honored to be a part of this system of rich traditions of uncompromised and dedicated efforts being religiously followed here with a view to cultivating some of the finest veterinary professionals and research minds. At FVSc & AH we prepare and fashion our students to become leaders with the moral integrity, intellectual intensity and an innate urge necessary to meet the challenges at a time of critical transition in the society.

Our approved academic programs include Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry (B.V.Sc & AH) at undergraduate level, Masters of Veterinary Sciences (MVSc) at the post-graduate level and we have Doctoral level programs (PhD) across the various disciplines.

We have a reputation of being a Centre of Research based learning where students and teachers put their heads together to answer some of the most pressing and challenging questions faced in the field today, in order to contribute to the development of the society. We have proved our mettle at national as well as international levels at several fora via demonstrating our competence and capability to do what most of others cannot. The cloning of Pashmina goat and vaccine development against Foot rot disease in sheep are some of the glowing examples of our achievements. In addition to to this our faculty has maintained its profile at around first two positions at all India level insofar as the bagging of fellowships is concerned. Our pass outs have been placed conveniently in various organisations that include Development Departments, Civil Services, Banks, Research Institutions, Pharma Industry, Livestock food industry and NGO,s etc. Their disciplined approach and consistently remarkable contribution has oftentimes helped our other pass outs being favourites among various employers.
