AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES DEPARTMENT
There are immense opportunities for students taking agriculture to rise up the TVET ladder and develop by growing starting from artisan to certificate, diploma, bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and even to doctorate level. The mission of the department of Agricultural Sciences is to contribute towards improved food security and livelihoods in the country through training, research and extension. The department aims to achieve this mission by producing graduates with adequate knowledge, skills and competence, to match national, regional and global challenges. Our students are admitted from all over the country and regions; they therefore, bring diversity that enriches agricultural knowledge and practices.
In 2018 the department launched certificate and diploma courses in agriculture which attracted many students and is soon becoming the most popular course in the College.
In response to the Kenya Vision 2030, the department aims at developing cutting edge technologies and transferring skills and knowledge to the wider public and private sector. Therefore, its programmes are unique, market driven such that, they are tailored to suit specific needs of the client and the region. To oversee the programmes the department is blessed with a team of energetic, qualified, experienced and highly motivated staff, who are hosted in the Departments of Applied Sciences. Also the department is known for hand-on practicuums, academic tours and plans are under way to enhance students and staff exchange programmes.
