The mission of the Faculty of Agriculture and Environmental Studies (FAES) is to improve food security and livelihoods in the community through increased and sustainable food production and resources utilization. The faculty aims to achieve this mission by producing graduates with skills and competence and through collaborative research and outreach activities with various stakeholders.

The Faculty recognises the fact that farming and resources utilisation are based on science and technology that rely heavily on the environment. FAES therefore offers courses relevant to the changing environmental needs. In addition to providing knowledge and skills to the students to be competent, they are also equipped with entrepreneurial skills for self employment.

FAES hosts the Departments of Plant Sciences, Animal Sciences and the Department of Environment Studies and Resources Development (ESRED).

Teaching in the Faculty

The faculty is committed to offering high quality training that is practical oriented. The students have hands on training using modern equipment in the relevant fields The Faculty is setting up modern animal and farm demonstration units, at the main campus and on a 500 acre farm at Kairini, to equip the students with appropriate practical skills in order to be competitive in the market. Apart from teaching purposes these farms generate income to the University. Students also get more exposure through field trips and field attachment.

Research and outreach programmes

Research in the Faculty targets the areas of livestock production, crop production, hospitality and environmental resources management. The goal is to improve the livelihoods of the community through sustainable, efficient and increased food production from animals and plants in a clean environment.
