Add -on-Course in Apiculture Training
The department of zoology conducts an apiculture training programme to the students. This activity was initiated in the department from the year 2018 onwards and hands-on training was given to handle the beehives and for the scientific management of them. The course is intended to promote self-reliance and self-employment among students. A total of thirty students from various departments participated in the training programme.For more details [click here]
