The Faculty of Agriculture is focused on achieving its mandate of capacity building, conducting research, offering consultancy services, promoting innovation and technology and outreach activities. The faculty offers technical training programs anchored at the different departments; Department of Land and Resource Management (LARMAT), Department of Food Science Nutrition and Technology, Department of Plant Science and Crop Protection, and Department of Agricultural Economics. At the faculty, we offer undergraduate, and graduate training programs at MSc and PhD level. Our PhD programs are discipline based and the faculty is in the process of developing a curriculum for other taught PhD programs. The PhD in Dryland Resources Management is a taught based program that was initiated with RUFORUM’s support and remains our flagship PhD program. It was the first Science based PhD program with a taught course component in the University and its success in timely completion rate informed the revision of PhD programs to incorporate a taught course component in year one.
