The undergraduate studies of this department have started since 1999-2000. The graduate students have granted B.sc, Msc. and PhD certificates since 1994. The department aims to provide scientific staff to contribute in presenting information and technical ,scientific consultant, and carries out research and applied them in many medical, agricultural, and industrial establishments besides, the private and mixed sectors for the important of this modern vital specialization in the country and all over the world.
The staffs continue in presenting their services for the country although, the hard conditions which our country passes and contribute by science and knowledge to serve humanity that started from the historical Iraqi role in this field.
