The Faculty of Agriculture has for years trained students in the fields of agriculture, horticulture, food science and technology, biotechnology, forestry, aquaculture and related fields. The Faculty develops its curriculum based on national and regional goals, policies and needs and offers programmes of studies at certificate, diploma, degree and postgraduate levels.
The Faculty reacts to changes in the different fields and redesigns its curriculum based on needs. However, to be able to assess what such needs are, it is necessary to make surveys, to reach out to stakeholders to find out what they would want and to try to match such needs as close as possible at the level of the faculty. The aim is also to ensure the employability of graduates, optimisation of resources, greater relevance of programmes and conformity with international standards.
In this context, The Faculty of Agriculture is holding a meeting with various stakeholders on Friday 8 Oct 2010 to assess their training needs and receive feedback on our curriculum in the agriculture and food sectors.
