Overview


The college aims to graduate a generation of specialists with the ability to make use of desert lands to grow suitable plants and crops and increase the agricultural area. This year, the College will offer two academic programs:

The agricultural engineering and biological systems program, which focuses on studying the concepts of basic sciences in the fields of agricultural engineering, mechanization of agricultural processes, irrigation methods and systems suitable for modern desert private crops in reclamation areas, and the best way to benefit from the units of land and water under conditions of water scarcity and the abundance of new and renewable energy, as well as the establishment and operation Managing automatic service stations, processing and recycling agricultural waste, in addition to the concepts of biological diversity, methods of preserving natural resources, agricultural legislation and professional ethics related to the environment and human health.

The plant production program in desert areas, which focuses on two main tracks, namely, modern desert agriculture, as it focuses on studying the concepts of basic sciences in the fields of field and horticultural crops and applying appropriate agricultural practices in desert areas to increase agricultural production, achieve high quality and reduce losses before and after harvest, under the regulations Different productivity and environment while maintaining soil fertility and using agricultural resources and inputs with high efficiency to achieve an appropriate economic return, the second path- It is the cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants, as it focuses on growing plants that are used in herbal remedies and traditional or folkloric medicines, or that are used in the form of raw medicines or plants that are used in the extraction of essential oils. The duration of study in the college is four years, after which the student gets a Bachelor of Agriculture.
