Founded in 2019, the School of Agriculture and Natural Resource at Mattu University has built a strong foundation in its five years of service. The school aims to excel in four key areas: academics, research, community service, and governance. These efforts align with the priorities of Mattu University, Ethiopia, and even the wider world.
Starting with just three undergraduate programs and five faculty members, the school has grown steadily. Today, it offers five Bachelor of Science (BSc) programs and one Master of Science (MSc) program.
The current programs include:
- - BSc in Animal Science
- - MSc in Animal Nutrition and Feed Science
- - BSc in Plant Science
- - BSc in Forestry
- - BSc in Land Administration and Surveying
- - BSc in Rural Development and Agricultural Extension
The school boasts a skilled team of faculty members, including two PhD candidates, two PhD holders, sixteen MSc holders (lecturers), four MSc candidates (graduate assistants), and two B.Sc. graduate assistants.
Currently, 134 students are enrolled in the BSc programs. The school strives to educate future agricultural experts who are not only knowledgeable but also possess critical thinking skills, problem-solving abilities, and a commitment to contributing to their communities.
