The demand for capacity and experts in the field of sustainable agriculture is continuously increasing. Through our academic programme offerings, we aim to develop agricultural specialists that can support sustainable agricultural practices, and in return support food security and socio-economic development. Our curricula are focused on developing professional knowledge and competences that will enable the graduates to provide leadership, strategic direction and support to local farmers and farming communities by promoting farming practices and methods that are profitable, environmentally sound and to the benefit of communities.

In addition our programme offerings address the global need for research, professional analytical and problem solving capacity, and provide solutions to sustainability in the field of agriculture. Sustainability in terms of food security, national resources and energy are key factors that inform the national and global development agenda.
