Each Faculty has its own history and achievements. Ryazan Agricultural Institute (now Ryazan Agrotechnological University) was established in 1949. On May 18 of that year the Zooengineering Faculty formed. At that time, it consisted of five departments: Feeding and Analysis of Fodders, Private Animal Husbandry, Anatomy and Physiology, Zoogygiene and Entomology, and Chemistry. The first Dean of the Faculty was Associate Professor Nikolai Zakharovich Bolhovitinov. The beginning of the journey was difficult. Nevertheless, the formation of the Faculty was successful, and it continued its progressive development. Its educational and material base was strengthened, Faculty was formed, the content of education was improved, new branches were opened, and the student population increased.

In 1998, the first set of students for the specialty "Veterinary Science" was recruited by the Zooengineering Faculty. Since February 2000, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine has existed as an independent unit. In 2007, a license was obtained to open a new specialty "Veterinary and sanitary examination." In that year, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Zooengineering merged, the combined faculty was named the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Biotechnology.

Over time, the Faculty was headed by the following Deans:
