Animal Science and Agriculture
Faculty of Animal Science and Agriculture consists of two departments; veterinary medicine and agriculture departments.
Department of veterinary medicine
The University of Burao established the department of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. Knowing that 75% of Somaliland people live in pastoral and rural areas and mostly keep livestock, where as their basic life depends on livestock production and their by products. As well as the people in urban areas exploit animal products ( meet and Milk) , furthermore, the live animals are considered the only export thing that exists in Somaliland, the University of Burao decided to open the department to fill the health needs of both urban and pastoral areas by equipping veterinary medicine doctors to occupy the great need of animal health. The program is full time and the students graduate within five years.
Department of Agriculture
Agriculture department was established in 2011, and first students graduated in 2014. The dream of the department of agriculture is to be a heart of excellence in teaching , research, and community service in agriculture in Togdher region and Somaliland at large by competent use of available resources. The mission of the department is to produce highly qualified agricultural professionals via rigorous theoretical and practical studies and to expand and disseminate problem solving agricultural production technologies.
The faculty of Animal Science and Agriculture is not only a site of teaching/learning but also conducts researches, and recently completed two researches; Milk quality analysis and Biogas experiment .
