College of Animal Science and Technology  >>

The College of Animal Science and Technology of Zhejiang A&F University grew out of the animal discipline from the College of Forestry and Biotechnology at Zhejiang Forestry College (founded in 2006). The president’s office meeting adopted a document "about actively preparing to build the College of Animal Science and Technology" in July of 2011. In September, the school hired professor Fang Weihuan of Zhejiang University as the head of the preparatory group to build the College of Animal Science and Technology, and shortly after, the preparatory work started.

Under the leadership of the school’s Development Strategy Office, the school invited 7 experts, such as the professor Liu Xiufan, the Academician of China Engineering Academy, to make an argument about the construction scheme of the College of Animal Science and Technology in June 2012. Experts agreed that veterinary medicine and animal husbandry are important pillar disciplines of a modern agricultural (forestry) university, so having the College of Animal Science and Technology take the two first-level disciplines of veterinary medicine and animal husbandry as its main body met the development trend of the current domestic agricultural (forestry) university, and has been of great significance in improving the quality of personnel training, improving the social service level and promoting the regional economic development.

The President's office and the Party Committee meeting all accepted the preparation scheme of the College of Animal Science and Technology in December 2012. The College of Animal Science and Technology has been affiliated with the College of Agriculture and Food Science since January 1, 2013, and the "direct planning by the state, overall management, resource sharing and reliance development" are implemented by personnel, finances and assets.

The school issued the Implementation Plan for the Adjustment of the Institutions and Functions of Zhejiang A&F University in June 2016, and established the College of Animal Science and Technology, and relevant disciplines, majors, and special teachers were included in the College of Animal Science and Technology. The College of Animal Science and Technology shall operate independently according to the experimental construction of the Entrepreneurial College.
