Ogongo together with Neudamm Campus are under the management of the Dean, Faculty of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The Faculty of Agriculture and Natural Resources has eight departments spread over four campuses and offering a total of eight BSc and three diploma programmes. Specialized postgraduate programs are also on offer. At Ogongo two degree (BSc Crop Science and BSc Integrated Environmental Science) and two diploma programmes (Higher Diploma in Agriculture and Higher Diploma in Natural Resources Management) are offered. The Deputy Dean, Ogongo oversees the day to day running of the Campus.
Efficient agricultural production and proper management of natural resources are essential for economic development and especially so for economies that do not have a strong manufacturing sector. Agriculture offers a job sanctuary and indeed a lifeline to the populace as industries and other sectors develop. Even after industrialization the need for food security and clean environment do not diminish. It is in this reality that Ogongo finds its mandate, to develop innovative ways of crop and animal production as well as environmental management and pass on the knowledge to the student clientele as well as other stakeholders. To this end Ogongo does not disappoint, the vibrant crop and animal production research and training activities and ventures into management of forests, woodlands, wildlife and water resources ensure that our graduates are specifically skilled in management of agriculture and natural resources of dry-land ecosystems and can perform equally well in management of these resources in other ecosystems.
I hope you will find your niche at Ogongo and enjoy the outer physical beauty of the Campus that is also evident in all other facets of Ogongo life.
