INTRODUCTION

The changing role of the Universities demands a greater connectivity and strong linkages with the local, national, regional and international communities. With the evolving role of the University, the department of External Linkages is becoming an important office to promote national and international collaborations and to develop partnerships with public, private and non-government institutions / organizations. This office also has the responsibility of attracting international students, placing University students and Faculty in high ranking Universities, facilitating interaction between Faculty and Industry, as well as exerting a pull for financing of training, research and development activities of the University by national and international donors, alumni, civil society and agro-based industries.

Our Existing Collaborations

Meanwhile, the University has also been running a long term exchange programme with Karlstad University in Sweden-this year, a total of 3 students and 3 teaching staff will visit the university for a period of 3 months.

More programmes and partnership is being sought in the areas of Dryland Agriculture.
