Animal Science Engineering is a collection of science and technology that is used in nutrition, health, physiology, genetics and breeding, and livestock and poultry management. It examines and studies these factors and their role in livestock and poultry breeding. This field has been created in order to provide the specialized human resources required by the country's animal sciences department in order to make optimal use of the available facilities and the latest scientific information, and to increase the quantitative and qualitative production of animal protein in the country's higher education centers. Training of human resources in different stages in order to provide the required expert force in livestock units, organizations, specialized institutions and the planning of universities to train researchers and livestock experts in the public, cooperative and private sectors are the other goals of this department. In Iran, the field of animal sciences is taught in undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. educational levels. The development of the livestock and poultry industry in Iran has made it the second largest industry in the country after the oil industry.
