Office of the Academic Affairs Vice President is responsible for managing academic issues including expansion of programs. Currently, the university has 58 undergraduate and 44 postgraduate programs including one PhD program. As the university is classified as a Comprehensive University by the Ministry of Education, we focused on academic programs’ expansion in recent years without compromising the quality in any way. The number of colleges has increased to seven namely: Agriculture, Food and Climate Sciences, Business and Economics, Education and Behavioral and Sciences, Engineering and Technology, Medicine and Health Sciences, Natural and Computational Sciences, Social Science and Humanities.

We have started to collaborate with different institutions in education sector and we are still very grateful to any other initiatives that wish to work with us.
