Printer-friendly versionPDF version


Extension and Education is designed to train and equip skills to students who will become producers, farm managers, agro processors and marketers, agricultural teachers, extension agent s, thus producing individuals well grounded in various facets of agricultural production for youth employment and self employment.  The programme allows for study in extension and communication methods, education, training and management, research evaluation and planning.  The objective of the programme was to introduce new practices intended to improve the quality of life in rural community and to produce agricultural teachers for high school, agricultural institutions and managers of various farms/firms.


The programme was presented to the faculty in 2004 and to the senate in the same year.;  the first “two’ groups of graduards did not have the component of teaching.  The curriculum was revised in collaboration with school fee education, Kikuyu in 2008 and first group with a teaching certificate will graduate in 2013 September.  The program has since become very popular with increased enrollment are to promise of careers in the area.
