Faculty of Science

 The Faculty of Science, in Jamia Hamdard, was established in 1989 with the objective to carry out research and teaching in the modern branches of science giving special emphasis on health and environment. It was envisaged that the Faculty will play a pivotal role in carrying out research aimed at indigenous systems of health management and the modern medical system, and provide the scientific basis for the action of indigenous system of medicines, effect of environmental pollution, medicinal plants on human beings. Following four Departments and a Center was created in the Faculty

Award of funds under FIST programme of DST to Departments in Faculty of Science

The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Min. of S&T, Govt. of India recently initiated a new scheme named as fund for improvement of S&T infrature in university (FIST Programme). The aim of the programme is to provide funds to selected science Departments of University for strengthening their infrastructural facilities and develop these Centres of Excellence. In recognition of their contribution to teaching, research and other academic activities, three Departments of Jamia Hamdard, namely the Centre for Biotechnology, Department of Botany and Department of Medical Elementology & Toxicology in the Faculty of Science have been selected by DST for the award of grant in aid. A grant of Rupees seventy five lakhs; Rupees twenty five to each of the three Departments/Centre has been provided for the purchase of specialized equipments, create a networking and computational facility and develop necessary infrastructure. This grant in aid will further the academic excellence of these Departments.


 In place of offering the traditional courses, many of which are slowly becoming irrelevant to present needs, the faculty offers courses which impart knowledge in fast changing area. For example, Jamia Hamdard is the only university offering the M.Sc. Course in Toxicology. There is a high demand for trained toxicologists in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries and environmental sector. Similarly biotechnology programme is a  specialised one which provides a balance between the animal, microbial biotechnology and the plant biotechnology. The laboratories of the Departments are well equipped to carry out research in various disciplines. To facilitate the research and teaching, there is a Central Instrumentation Facility which has a number of modern equipments. The facility caters to the needs of not only the science faculty but also of other faculties. A well equipped Central Animal House is also attached to Science faculty which breeds and maintains rats, mice and other small animals and serves the scientists in faculties of science, pharmacy and medicine (Unani).

. During a short span of only 10 years, the Faculty has gained recognition amongst academicians and researchers. In general, it is accepted as a Centre of Excellence for advanced learning by various academic bodies. The courses offered by the faculty are ranked high and its students are recognized as well-trained students. During this period 42 students have received Ph.D. degree from the faculty.

A total of 182 students have received their degrees. The M.Sc. (Biotechnology) course started in 1998 and the first batch will pass their degree in June 2000. 

Six students who passed M.Sc. Biochemistry in the session 2001-2002 have qualified National Level tests such as NET , GATE etc. for the award of research fellowships/Lecturerships . Six students who passed M.Sc. Biotechnology have qualified NET .

The Faculty of Science has started a special lecture programme for the benefit of students preparing to appear for NET.
