Department of Agriculture
  • Bridging the principles of food production, resources management, and livelihoods sustainability to promote a “Healthy Earth, Healthy Food, Healthy People”.

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Department of Agriculture offers two undergraduate programs—in agriculture and agribusiness—as well as a graduate program with a number of specializations. The Agribusiness Program trains its students to devise optimal strategies of agro and food marketing while at the same time focusing on the fair-trade aspect of the production. Students are concurrently sensitized to minding the most crucial cost: resources! Which are the land, water, and energy poles of the renewable resources nexus. The Agriculture Program trains future agricultural engineers to optimize crop production only after securing the requirements of sound policy in terms of water, energy, and renewable resources. This means that environmental and ethical considerations along with the structure of the social fabric, are the drivers behind the research agenda and the program learning outcomes of the Department of Agriculture.
