The department of Physics, University of Agriculture Faisalabad was established in 1960 as an integrated part of the division of Basic Sciences. Initially the department was established to teach courses to the undergraduate students of the Agri-Engineering faculty. After the establishment of Faculty of Sciences in the University, the postgraduate classes in the department of physics were started. The department of physics offered the M.Sc. Physics program for the first time in 1979. Since then there is a continuous increase in the enrollment of students and research activities in the department. The M.Phil. Physics degree was initiated in 1997. The Physics department provides a program that develops the necessary skill and competence which is required in the major research and technical organizations like the NESCOM, NDC, PAEC, KRL etc. A good number of the students who have graduated from the physics department are serving in these organizations. [1] Agriculture University Faislabad

  The foundation stone of the Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute was laid in 1906 and Sir Louis Dane, the then Lieut, and Governor of the Punjab formally opened college in 1909. Since its inception, the college has passed through many vicissitudes. It started with a three-year course of Licentiate of Agriculture covering lectures and practical classes in Agriculture, Chemistry and Agricultural Chemistry, Physics, Botany and Agricultural Botany, Zoology and Entomology, Mathematics, Land Surveying and Veterinary. A few years experience proved this system unsatisfactory. The number of students seeking admission to the College began to decline and a crisis was reached in 1913 when no new class could be formed. Under the circumstances, in pursuance of the recommendations of the Board of Agriculture at its meeting held in Coimbatore (India) in 1913, a modified four years course of Licentiate in Agriculture (L. Ag) was adopted. This course comprised of two-parts. First part consisted of simple practical instructions in Agriculture and elementary courses in scientific subjects while the second part was related to systematic courses in sciences allied to agriculture. At the end of the first part examination, successful candidates used to get a leaving certificate, and were eligible for lower rank jobs in the Agricultural Department, and for such posts as Estate Managers. The candidates completing both parts of this course were awarded with the Diploma of Licentiate in Agriculture. This course started in 1914, continued up to 1920 and met with some measure of success. In 1917, as a result of a resolution passed in a conference held at Pusa (India), the College was affiliated to the Punjab University for four year degree of B.Sc.(Agri.) and the first batch was honored with B.Sc. (Agri) degree in 1921. However, a provision, for a leaving certificate at the end of first two years, as practiced previously, was maintained for those not wishing to take a degree. The student’s interest in leaving certificate class, however, declined with time and it was decided to close this program in 1941. The college got affiliation to the Punjab University for M.Sc. (Agri.) degree in 1923 and first M.Sc. degree was awarded in 1928. Originally the M.Sc. (Agri.) was purely a research degree but realizing the importance of theoretical understanding of the subject, it was decided to include course work also in the degree program. The college also got affiliation to the Punjab University for the degree of Ph.D and first doctorate degree was awarded in 1944. Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute remained the premier seat of learning and training in tropical agriculture for a major part of the century and made great efforts to promote agrarian development in the country. After independence in 1947, the Government of Pakistan appointed National Commissions of Food and Education with the terms of reference to review, in all its ramifications, the prevailing agrarian system and to formulate measures for developing the full potential of our agricultural resources. The commissions made a strong plea for establishing an Agricultural University, which could play a more vigorous role in promoting research and education in Agriculture. Pursuant to these recommendations, the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad was established by upgrading the former Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute in the year 1961-1962 and the Faculty of Agriculture originated directly from old Punjab Agriculture College in 1961. [2] Agriculture University Faisalabad 

Department of Entomology

The foundation of teaching and research in Entomology in the Province was laid with the establishment of the Punjab Agricultural College, Lyallpur (Department of Agriculture, Punjab) in 1905. From 1905-1907 an Agricultural Assistant carried out research on crop pests. In 1908, an Assistant Professor of Entomology was appointed on the staff of Economic Botanist. The first class of Licenciate in Agriculture (LAG), a 3 years diploma, course, was admitted in 1909, in 1913, an independent Entomological Section came into existence under the Assistant Professor of Entomology. In 1914, the duration of the LAG diploma course was increased from 3 to 4 years and in 1916 it was made a degree course (B.Sc. Agriculture) and the responsibility of conducting the examination was entrusted to the Punjab University. In 1919, Mian M. Afzal Husain was appointed as Imperial Entomologist. This was a corner stone in the history of Entomology and a true beginning of entomological research and teaching was made. Mian M. Afzal Husain for his keen interest and dedicated service in this field is very correctly and deservedly called the ‘Father of Entomology’ in this region. He was instrumental in raising the status of this subject to a major field of study in 1931 and thus Entomology assumed its rightful place. The LAG diploma course was discontinued in 1920. In 1923, the Punjab University recognized the Punjab Agricultural College for M.Sc. (Agri.) and in 1929, the first student (Mr. Abdul Wahid Khan) was awarded this degree. With the passage of time the standard of teaching and research continued to rise rapidly and the college was consequently recognized by the Punjab University for Ph.D. degree. The first Ph.D. degree was conferred upon Dr. Atiq-ur-Rahman Ansari in 1945. With the appointment of Mian M. Afzal Husain as Vice-Chancellor of the Punjab University in 1938, Dr. Khan A. Rehman took over as Entomologist and continued till 1950 before he was appointed as Director Agriculture, Punjab. During this period entomological research and teaching continued to make great progress. He was succeeded by Dr. Abdul Latif who assumed the charge of Principal, Agricultural College in 1961. In 1959, Kh. Abdul Haq took over as Entomologist till 1961 when the College was raised to the status of the University of Agriculture, Lyallpur (now Faisalabad).Since then the department has produced more than 950 B.Sc (Hons.), 900 M.Sc (Hons.) and 49 Ph.D. students. [3] Agriculture University Faisalabad 

Department of Crop Physiology

he Crop Physiology department was established in the Faculty of Agriculture in July 7, 1981 by the proposal of Planning and Development Department, Government of the Punjab.s Department offers degrees of M.Sc.(Hons.) Agri. And Ph.D. at Postgraduate level. At undergraduate level, a core course for the students of agriculture is being taught to introduce about the basic knowledge of crop physiology. However, at postgraduate level, a set of different courses is being offered to a large number of students from allied disciplines of agriculture. It is of vital importance for the fulfillment of the need of knowledge and experities for incorporation of physiological aspects in various field and laboratory based research programmers. Along with regular teaching, postgraduate and independent research is the main focus of activity of the department’s faculty. For the purpose, the department has three well-established laboratories viz. one main/general laboratory, stress physiology laboratory and a seed physiology laboratory. Agricultural meteorological cell is another important feature of the department, which not only provides the meteorological data for the scientific community of the University but also acts as a solid source research on weather trends and spectral analysis. [4] Agriculture University Faisalabad
