As one of the four Faculties of the University, the Faculty of Science and Agriculture comprises four Schools:
The Faculty offers FOURTEEN DHET-accredited undergraduate programmes of which SEVEN are in the SAES and the other SEVEN are shared amongst the THREE other Schools. These programmes range over many disciplines such as agricultural sciences, environmental sciences, and mathematical sciences including computer science; biological sciences, microbiology, botany and zoology, which are facilitated by sufficiently qualified academics. Currently all our undergraduate lectures are conducted multimodally and remotely. Whilst our new professional Water and Sanitation programme is in its fourth year, the Three basic (natural) science programmes are being reviewed with a view to replacing them in 2023. On the other hand, the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Agricultural Economics) and Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Plant Production) are undergoing internal Quality Assurance review. These reviews are a guarantor for relevance and responsiveness.
All our undergraduate programmes articulate into postgraduate programmes which are supervised by a sizable pool of highly motivated senior academics. In fact, the Faculty is home to EIGHTEEN National Research Foundation rated scientists. There are THREE Research Chairs in the Faculty.
They are as follows:
The Faculty has few other strategic units which bolster our provision of quality academic offerings, namely:
The Faculty is also home to some of the outstanding female academics in the University in disciplines such as Chemistry, Botany, Statistics, Physics, Plant Production, Microbiology, Water Scienceand Zoology.
The Faculty is generally a beehive of scientific inquiry where science dreamers turn their dreams into reality.
That is why I welcome you to the Faculty of Science and Agriculture,” Where history is made before our eyes”
