About US

The department of Agricultural and Extension is one of the first established seventeen academic departments in the Institution. It had its first set of undergraduate students in October, 1990 and has one of the largest student populations in the institution.

We believe students are the heart of the learning process. Students are tomorrow's leaders, and we value the privilege of working for them today. Just for starters, we offer students a nationally-recognized faculty; award-winning programmes; and a student-focused learning community. We are excited to share with you the many ways we invest in students, so you can invest a career.

The department of Agricultural Economics and Extension has a rich tradition of services to agriculture and related fields, dating back more than 15 years. The current administration is making good use of the legacies of the founding fathers and preceding administrators of the department by embarking on projects that will highlight their achievements. We wish to use human resources available, all over the world, in the fields of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development to advance intellectual activities and contribute significantly to scholarship in these disciplines.

This website project is a modest attempt to bring this ambition to fruition; through the online journal component of the project, the rare intellectual resources will be used to develop young scholars and even improve others. We are very hopeful that this lofty ambition will be achieved.
