History of the School

The School of Geosciences, is one of the original schools established by the founding framework of the University. It was decoupled from the School of Agriculture in August 2020.

The School of Geosciences is the country’s maiden geoscience school with the mandate broadly encompassing research and academic programmes. The School of Geoscience is dedicated to teaching, research, and service in the fields that promote observational skills, an understanding of data and maps, and an awareness of the interconnected systems that make up the planet. Geoscientists play an important role in protecting the planet by studying it, learning from it, and predicting what the future will bring.

The School of Geoscience plays a critical role in advancing our understanding of the Earth and its complex systems, as well as preparing the next generation of geoscientists to address the many challenges facing our planet, society's most challenging problems, such as natural resources exploration and exploitation, identifying hotspots of disease-causing-elements and natural disasters, climate change, and resource management.
