Faculty Programs

Agriculture is vital in Somaliland, where 60% of the population lives in rural areas. However, only a small portion of land is suitable for cultivation and faces challenges such as environmental degradation, declining productivity, and climate change. Amoud University is tackling these issues through agricultural development programs aligned with local needs. By increasing crop production and productivity through innovation and research, trained professionals can improve the livelihoods of locals.

Amoud University offers a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management programme to address global environmental problems by creating an ecosystem balance, monitoring changes, and minimizing degradation. Graduates will have the skills to solve environmental problems in the country and beyond. The programme trains in environmental natural resource aspects and satisfies regional research demands.

Livestock is crucial for Somaliland’s economy, but productivity remains low due to genetics, nutrition, and veterinary care. Lack of trained professionals is a major hindrance. The Bachelor of Science in Animal Science program aims to bridge these gaps through research, training, outreach, and community service.
