If you are interested in plant sciences and acquire hands-on learning and research opportunities the Department of Botany, University of Buner welcomes you. The Department of Botany was established in 2019. It is an ideal place for students with an interest in plant sciences to learn and acquire skills in Plants, Algal, and Fungal biology in order to function effectively in society
The Department is committed to providing a positive educational experience for each student, and an environment of personal growth and development. For prospective undergraduate students, we have a BS Botany program. Our BS curriculum is designed according to Higher Education Commission (HEC) guidelines.
A BS degree from the Department of Botany is focused on an excellent preparation for graduate programs in a variety of fields, which should enable them to pursue many rewarding career interests. Indeed there are many options including national and international opportunities in teaching, research, renewable energy, health, food and pharmaceutical industry, and bio-business in public and private sectors.
In near future, the Department of Botany with the support of the cooperative administration of the University of Buner is planning to establish a herbarium, botanical garden, well-equipped research labs. Further, the department is planning to launch MPhil/MS and Ph.D. programs in the future.
Our vision is to recognize the Department of Botany as a center of excellence nationally and internationally in plant sciences and strive for understanding the diversified facets of plant sciences motivating young talents and society to unravel the prime role of plants in development and sustainability and conservation of nature.
The Department of Botany is committed to fostering the independent learning and thinking capabilities of students, their employability skills that enrich their professions and communities. Our research mission for undergraduates and graduates is to produce researchers in all fields of plant sciences capable of providing solutions to industrial, health, agricultural, and environmental challenges.
