Sokoine University of Agriculture and Technology

Organisation Acronym: 
SUA
Description: 

The university traces its roots back to 1965 in Morogoro, where it initially began as a Agriculture college offering diploma training in agricultural practices. After the dissolution of the East African Community in 1970, the University of East Africa, which was the only university in East Africa offering Agriculture degrees in the region was also dissolved. This forced the Government of Tanzania to create a domestic institution, which let to the establishment of the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of Dar es Salaam. Sokoine Agriculture college fell under this umbrella and under the mandate of the University of Dar es Salaam, started to offer Bachelors of Science in Agriculture.http://www.suanet.ac.tz/index.php/about-us/university-profile
