University rank #601 (QS) ,
Entomology is the study of insects and their allies. Insects are the most numerous and most diverse animals on earth, and occur in virtually every aquatic and terrestrial habitat. Insects pollinate, parasitize, predate, defoliate, scavenge, promote decomposition and provide food for vertebrates.

About

Entomology became a separate Department within the Faculty of Agriculture in 1920. The first M.Sc. student graduated in 1951, and the first Ph.D. in 1962. The Department's main focus is now undergraduate and graduate teaching, and research. Undergraduate teaching is within the framework of degrees or diplomas of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. About half of the graduate work and research activity in the Department is in applied areas. Additionally, all academic staff do active research, and supervise graduate work, on fundamental entomological topics.
