The Faculty of Environmental Sciences.
Environmental degradation has been coined the third crisis after the economic crisis and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The rationale behind establishing this faculty was a strategic decision by government to have a unique institution capable of producing high quality graduates in environmental sciences that would spearhead turning technological knowledge and experience into production, business operations and investments in the spheres of environmental sciences.
The goal of the Faculty is “to produce high quality graduates equipped with relevant scientific and technical knowledge, values and skills that would effectively contribute to sustainable management of natural resources and biodiversity conservation programmes for the improvement of human well-being”.
