Message from the Dean
Faculty of Life Sciences and Natural Resources (FLIN) was established in 2019 to strengthen the niche area of the University focusing on dryland farming and mining. The faculty endeavours to play a key role in the national development agenda enshrined in vision 2030 and “The Big Four” by producing graduates with skills and competences in sustainable food production and prudent use of natural resources for food security and poverty alleviation. The faculty appreciates that farming and natural recourses utilization are the backbone for industrialization that must be based on
science and technology whose sustainability requires sound environmental management practices. The Faculty has setup animal and crop demonstration units, that offer practical skills to ensure our graduates are competitive in the market. Our students also get more practical exposure through field trips and field attachment. Within the faculty there is a conducive learning environment.
