Faculty of Agricultural Sciences

In light of the threats to both the micro and macro ecosystems of the DR Congo in general and the Great Lakes region in particular, Shalom University created the Faculty of Agricultural Science to provide students with an understanding of responsible and renewable natural resource use and production.


  1. . The Department of Agro-Forest Sciences: At the undergraduate level, the department offers a diploma in water and forests. At the graduate (Master’s) level, the department offers an engineering diploma in water and forests (Forest or Agro-Forest Engineering)
  2. The Department of Agro-Aquatic Sciences: At the undergraduate level, the department offers a diploma in Agro-Aquatic Sciences in Fish and Aquatic Life. At the graduate (Master’s) level, the department offers an agro-aquatic engineering diploma in fish and aquatic life. Graduates of the Master’s program are instilled with a deeper understanding of the responsible management of aquatic resources.

Educational Objectives

A good university education is one which integrates the theory taught in the classroom with hands-on practical experiences. This combination contributes to the formation of practitioners with not only full heads, but heads well used. Graduates may then move on to work where they are called, armed with knowledge of their trade, themselves, and the world around them. All of the students of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences complete an internship during their studies, as requested by local populations who, more and more, seek the expertise of our students.

Upon completion of their studies, Engineers of Agricultural Sciences are able to work toward the relief of the many burdens on our ecosystem, while remembering that they are, by divine love, co-manager with God in the responsible use of natural resources. Graduates are capable of being involved in high-value ecosystem research and of initiating projects by private request.
