The department offers B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees on basic and applied animal science. Major fields include nutrition, physiology, feed technology, food technology, feeding and management, animal production, behavior, breeding, genetics, endocrinology, and decision support systems. The department building, animal housings and various accessory facilities provide an excellent environment for extensive research in poultry, waterfowl, swine, dairy cattle, and goat, as well as in the processing of milk, meat, and egg products. Undergraduate enrollment is 180 and graduate enrollment is 70.
The B.S. degree has a course requirement no less than 128 credits, of which more than 50 credits must be taken in animal science. The graduate program is offered in five major areas of study, namely: animal breeding, animal nutrition and feed technology (in ruminant and monogastric animals), animal products processing, reproductive physiology, and management of animal production.
In cooperation with both on-campus institutes (Computer and Information Center, Experimental Animal Farm, etc.) and off-campus institutes (Animal Technology Institute Taiwan, Taiwan Livestock Research Institute, etc.), consultation and facilities are easily accessible for research and teaching
