PRINCIPALS MESSAGE ON THE SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE
Hello and welcome to the School of Agriculture at King Ceasor University! Our goal is to offer demand driven agricultural programmes that re-tool and empower learners with knowledge and skills to be self-employed as well as be ethically innovative for sustainable development. The school boasts of well skilled, articulate staff in the various agricultural disciplines (crop production, animal science, economics, sustainable agriculture) to mention but a few.
The school staff are committed to developing proactive, innovative scientists who can solve emerging problems in the agricultural industry at national, regional and international levels. At the end of the day our students are morally upright and wealth multipliers.
I would like to cordially invite all of you who are interested in pursuing a paying career in agriculture to explore what our school offers either online or pay a cordial visit to our campus. Remember “`Agriculture feeds the world”
