The School of Agriculture and Biotechnology aims at training highly skilled manpower for the Kenyan Agricultural sector. The School currently offers several undergraduate programs that include Horticulture; Food Science and Nutrition; Agricultural Economics and Resource Management; Agricultural Extension and Rural Development.
We endeavour to equip our students with hands on experience through extensive practical sessions in our laboratory. Our students also gain more experience through practical lessons in the university farm; and by positive engagement with the farming community that neighbours the university.
Karatina University is situated in a rich agricultural area of Nyeri County with small scale farmers engaging in horticulture, tea and coffee farming, keeping of dairy cattle, goats for milk, chicken, rabbits, bees and fish farming.
We also offer Diploma and Certificate courses in Tea Technology.
