Message from Coordinator FVAS:
Pleasure and honor are the deep root feeling to my soul while presenting my message as founder of Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Mirpur University of Science and Technology (MUST), Bhimber Campus AJ&K.
Livestock plays a vital role in the economy of Pakistan. The country has a large population of livestock, making it one of the largest livestock-producing countries in the world. The importance of livestock in Pakistan can be seen in several key areas, including agriculture, food security, rural development, and foreign exchange earnings. Livestock provides a source of food, fiber, and fuel for rural communities, and is also an important source of livelihood for many farmers and rural families. By investing in the development of the livestock sector, Pakistan can ensure sustainable economic growth and improve the standard of living for its people. The importance of livestock-based economy has resulted in the inevitable need of new academic institutes in the country in order to cater the relevant demands.
Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences was established in 2020 with the objective of attaining a substantial skillful manpower in the field of Veterinary and Animal Sciences. At present, two undergraduate degree programs, i.e., Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), BS Animal Sciences and one diploma program, i.e., Livestock Assistant Diploma (LAD) are being offered by the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences at Bhimber Campus, MUST. The curricula and syllabi of all programs are kept continuously updated in accordance with national and international standards.
I invite students and parents to come and explore Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences. Our staff would be happy to provide you with more information about the degree programs and answer any questions you may have. You can also visit our campus and meet with current students and faculty members to learn more about what it is like to be part of our faculty.
