Program descriptions:

Modern agriculture is complex and only individuals with thorough preparation in agriculture can effectively participate and make a significant contribution in this sector. The logical basis of a specialized degree programme in agriculture is the need to produce a vital mass of specialized professionals in agriculture who can be producers and provide the required skills for research, innovation and management of crises in agriculture. This specialized Bachelor of Science degree programme will prepare and produce the essential manpower for sustainable agriculture, research and innovation of agribusiness for employment creation.

The interdisciplinary nature of our program enables graduates to confidently seek careers in all Agricultural sectors; processing industries; education; research institutes, businesses, NGOs, local government authorities, and government agencies. The graduates will also be sufficiently qualified to assume responsibilities in government and the private sector and also set up their own agri-businesses to reduce on the increasing rate of unemployment in their countries. Therefore, this programme is designed to address specific setbacks to sustainable agricultural productivity, through training and producing graduates with specialized skills in Biotechnology and Plant Breeding; Animal Production and Nutrition; Crop Protection and Management; Agronomy and Soil Fertility and Agribusiness Innovation and Management.
