Department of Plant Science

About the Department

This program is designed to respond to immediate needs of the country to increase crop production and productivity, and thereby contribute to improve the livelihood of its people. The program aims at producing competent professionals who are well equipped with both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in managing all aspects of plant production and management in the Ethiopian context and, thereby to conduct various plant science related research and development activities, which can contribute to the country’s development program.

The curriculum is designed in convention way where courses are set to be completed semester wise. There are a number of reasons to change the modularized curriculum into the conventional which is semester course wise. Firstly, the courses in modularized curriculum are organized to be offered in few weeks (eight weeks) which do not give enough time for the students to understand and absorb the courses in this short time. Furthermore, the time allotted for each course in modularized curriculum is not sufficient for the preparation and undertaking of practical and laboratory classes. Thus, the current curriculum is designed in conventional way where courses are designed to be completed in semester wise.
