|>> Message from the Dean
We had celebrated 56th
“IAAS Day” in the month of August, 2012. In the past
55 years, IAAS has proved its academic excellence and
professional competence in agriculture education. In fact,
IAAS is the only leading institution for agricultural
education in Nepal. I am very much delighted to see the
leadership role of our graduates in various avenues of
agriculture education, research and rural development within
the country. Also, the record of success our graduates
achieved abroad must be appreciated.
Presently, we offer academic programs
leading to Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (B. Sc. Ag.),
Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry (B.V.
Sc. & A.H.), Master of Science in Agriculture (M. Sc. Ag.),
Master of Science in Animal Science (M. Sc. Anim. Sci.),
Master of Veterinary Science (M. V. Sc.), Master of Science
in Aquaculture (M. Sc. Aqua.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.
D.). The postgraduate programs are offered at the central
campus, Rampur. The two branch campuses located at Lamjung
and Paklihawa offer four years of B. Sc. Agriculture courses
The concept of agriculture education has
changed remarkably in recent years. The growing needs of the
farm communities and challenges posed by the global climate
change combined with depleting natural resources demand
non-traditional multi-disciplinary education system to
prepare graduates for the future. Hence, our agriculture
education system requires massive restructuring to integrate
research and development components for more relevant
technology generation and efficient delivery of specialized
services to our clients.
Lastly, let’s join our hands to achieve
our goal of developing IAAS as a model agriculture and
veterinary academic institution of the nation. Lastly, I
thank IAAS web-team for their marvelous work of updating and
improving the IAAS website. I believe that the website will
be useful to our broader visitors and well-wishers.
