Postgraduate curricula development

Adama Science and Technology University currently exerts tremendous effort to become a leading Science and Technology University in the country in-line with the developmental strategy of MOST. It is one of the higher learning institutions in Ethiopia that has recognized the importance of establishing and maintaining strong PhD and Masters Programs. Since then, the postgraduate programs has been devoted to design new curricula graduate programs to satisfy the current demands of academic institutions, industries and research centers.  

Major references made during preparation of the PG curriculum are:

  • The experiences of some well-known Science and Technology Universities abroad
  • MoST’s Directives
  • ASTU’s Senate Legislation
  • ASTU’s postgraduate Guideline
