Welcome to the School of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (SAES) in the Faculty of Science and Agriculture. Our school has three core business functions, namely Teaching and Learning, Research, Innovation and Development, and Community Engagement.

Transforming the lives of society, especially the poor rural communities, is at the center of the school’s concerted efforts. We have embarked on strengthening academics’ skills in facilitating experiential learning and action-research as well as promoting the above core business areas.
