    动物科学技术学院前身为畜牧系,1950年4月,由国立西北农业专科学校畜牧科和草原科并入国立兽医学院创建畜牧专业,随后成立畜牧系。经学校批准,先后更名为动物生产工程系(1993年9月)、动物科学技术系 (1999年7月 ),2001年3月学校院系调整时成立动物科学技术学院。

    动物科学技术学院是我国高等农业院校中办学历史较长,并在国内外畜牧学界有着广泛影响的学院。学院秉承老一辈“勤奋严谨、求实创新”的优良传统,经过66年的建设与发展,已成为我国畜牧高级专业人才培养和科学研究的重要基地。学院设有动物营养与饲料科学系、动物遗传育种与繁殖系、动物生产系、水产养殖系和动物科学技术实验教学中心等教学机构,设甘肃省现代养猪工程技术研究中心、甘肃省草食动物生物技术重点实验室、甘肃省牛羊基因改良工程实验室、西北地区肉羊肉牛遗传改良国际科技合作基地、甘肃农业大学永昌肉羊农科教合作人才培养基地和畜牧系统工程研究所等研究平台。

     2001年经国家人事部批准设立畜牧学博士后科研流动站。2003 年经国务院学位委员会批准获畜牧学一级学科博士学位授予权,下设二级学科(博士点)有:动物遗传育种与繁殖、动物营养与饲料科学、特种经济动物饲养和动物生产学。学院具有农业(畜牧领域)硕士专业学位授予权。动物遗传育种与繁殖为农业部重点学科,畜牧学一级学科为甘肃省重点学科,动物科学专业为甘肃省特色专业。现开设动物科学、动物科学(畜牧兽医方向)、水产养殖学3个本科专业和自学考试应用型独立本科段(专升本)动物科学专业;学院为甘肃省饲料工业职业技能鉴定培训考评基地。

    学院具有本科教育和研究生教育多层次、多学科的培养体系。66年来,学院已为社会培养各类专业人才9117人,其中博士研究生101人,硕士研究生739人,本科生3580人,专科生1203人,成人及自考本科生3494人,毕业生遍及海内外,涌现出如英国皇家科学院院士等大批专家、官员和企业家。目前学院有各类在读学生2244人,其中,博士、硕士研究生157人,本科生967人,自考本科生1119人。(2016年2月20日)

Brief Introduction to College of Animal Science and Technology

 

    College of Animal Science and Technology (CAST) developed from Department of Animal Husbandry. In April 1950,Animal husbandry and grassland subjects of National Northwest Agricultural Academy School were merged with National Veterinary College and adopted the name of Department of Animal Husbandry. Upon the approval by Gansu Agricultural University, Department of Animal Husbandry was renamed to Department of Animal Production & Engineering (September 1993), and Department of Animal Science and Technology (July 1999). In March 2001, when the university adjusted its faculties, College of Animal Science and Technology was founded.

    CAST is longer in history of the higher agricultural universities in China, and also enjoys good reputation and well influenced in international and domestic animal husbandry fields with inheriting the older generation’s excellent tradition of DILIGENCE, PRECISENESS, HONESTY and INNOVATION. After 66 years of construction and development, CAST has become an important base for a senior professional personnel training and scientific research in animal husbandry in China.

    There are five teaching departments in the College, namely Department of Animal Nutrition and Feed Science, Department of Animal Genetics, Breeding and Reproduction, Department of Animal Production, Department of Aquaculture, and Experiment and Teaching Center of Animal Science & Technology, and four teaching and researching institutes including Gansu Research Center for Swine Production Engineering & Technology, Gansu Key Laboratory of Herbivorous Animal Biotechnology, Gansu Engineering Lab of Genetic Improvement in Ruminants, International Science and Technology Cooperation Base for Genetic Improvement of Mutton Sheep & Beef Cattle in Northwest China, Gansu Agricultural University Yongchang Sheep Farming Science & Education Cooperation Baseand Animal Husbandry Systematic Engineering Research Institute of Gansu Agricultural University. By authorization of State Ministry of Personnel, Animal Husbandry Post-doctoral station was founded in 2001. There was the 1st level discipline of PhD program in Animal Husbandry, upon the approval by the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council, PRC in 2003. CAST offers four the 2nd level doctor’s programs in agronomy disciplines, namely, Animal Genetics, Breeding and Reproduction Science, Animal Nutrition and Feed Science, Rearing of Special-type Economic Animals, and Animal Production. CAST has the right to grant master's degree of Agricultural  (Animal Husbandry areas). Animal Genetics, Breeding and Reproduction Science is the key subject of Ministry of Agricultural. In addition, Animal Husbandry (1st level) is the key subject of Gansu Province and Animal Science is the specialties subject of Gansu Province. CAST offers three undergraduate specialties including Animal Science, Animal Science (animal husbandry and veterinary direction) and Aquiculture, and also offers undergraduate specialties of Animal Science for self-taught students. In addition, CAST is the training and evaluating base for Gansu Feed Industry Professional Skills.

    CAST actively carries out academic exchanges at home and abroad, improves the educational level and quality of personnel training continuously. It also has established long-standing academic exchanges and cooperation activities with many foreign universities and institutes of many countries such as United States, France, Germany, Rumania, Australia, Italy, Hungary, Canada, New Zealand, Turkey, Thailand, South Africa, Kenya, Ukraine and so on. It has also tied extensive relationship with many well-known domestic universities, research institutions and enterprises. At present, CAST has established more than ten teaching and research bases and practical bases for students of employment outside the compus.

    In order to adapt itself to the need of some key technological research projects of social and economic development including national and provincial level, CAST has carried out extensive science research programs in the past 66 years. Based on rigorous scholarship and realistic attitude and hard-working spirit, the majority of teachers have obtained remarkable achievements in teaching and researching. College staffs have obtained 114 achievements in teaching and scientific researching, have published more than 1000 academic research papers, and more than 101 professional books and teaching materials.
