Egyptian agriculture faculties

   Word of the dean

Welcome to a candid Faculty with traditions and an eye to the future.

We are proud that the great pharaohs are our ancestors, who were the first people to develop agricultural techniques. With pride, we are still the leaders in agriculture in our area. We are located on the west bank of the Nile at Assiut city, Egypt.
The Faculty of agriculture started in the academic year 1959/1960. Our programs focus on four major resources: biological, natural, environmental, and human resources. The biological resources include horticulture, vegetables, fruits, ornamentals, field crops, live stock and poultry. The natural resources include soil and water; dairy and food technology. The environmental resources include genetics, plant pathology and plant protection. Finally, the human resources include rural sociology and agricultural economics.
