Message from the Dean
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Husbandry. We are a diverse and dynamic faculty community comprising students from all parts of Somalia.
The faculty re-established in 2014 and plans to offer two different LAUREA degrees in Veterinary Medicine and Animal Husbandry. As expected, the faculty is also building its capacity for research in related areas such veterinary public health, infectious diseases, feeding standards, husbandry practice, range and wildlife management and etc. The faculty is proud of its academic excellence and the expectations in contributing of its research mandate to find solutions to local and regional challenges.
Although the faculty’s curriculum is designed for the specific niche of the Somali community, our degrees are internationally recognized and are structured similarly to some of those world’s greatest universities. Before the collapse of the Somali institutions, we had a growing number of students who were graduating from the faculty every year, having been well prepared, go on to make an impact in livestock industry, in private and public sectors.
Our academic activities will be enriched by meaningful community engagement and collaboration with other sister institutions and perhaps all other relevant stakes.
Professor Hassan Mohamed Hassan
The Dean of the faculty
