HOD

The Department of Plant Science and Biotechnology (PSB) was carved out of the former Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Natural and Applied Sciences under the leadership of Professor Hilary Odo Edeoga. It is worthy to note that the Department of Biological Sciences which was made up of Zoology and Botany started as a programme in the College of Natural and applied Sciences (CNAS) since the inception of the University. The name change from Botany to Plant Science and Biotechnology was in response to modern trends in the field of Plant Science and to expose our student plant biotechnology trends of the 21st century.

The Department offers a wide range of aspects in Plants Science and Biotechnology relevant to Environment, Agriculture and industry from the molecular level up to whole plant bases.

Our graduates acquire a sound background that is deeply rooted in laboratory and field based experience in the broad array of disciplines within Plant Science and Biotechnology. These include Economic Botany, Medicinal Plants and Pharmacognosy, Plant Pathology, Mycology, Bioremediation, Plant Anatomy and Taxonomy, Cytogenetics, Plant Physiology, Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics.

Our graduates are sought after by many leading employers. A degree in Plant Science and Biotechnology from Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike is your gateway to a career in Agriculture, Biotechnology, Environmental Management, Pharmacy, Research and Teaching etc. So you are welcome to take advantage of these by joining us.

Thanks
