Far-western University and Future Agriculture Program

Far-western University (FWU) was established in 2010 through an Act of Parliament as a government funded national university of Nepal. The central office of this university is located at Bhimdatta Municipality in Kanchanpur district. Since its  inception,  FWU has been striving to fulfill  its  responsibility of making  higher  education  accessible  to  the  people  of  the nation in general, and to the  Far-western Province in specific. The FWU envisages six faculties; three in technical subjects; mainly Agriculture, Engineering, and Science and Technology and three in non-technical subjects, namely Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Management. The university offers its academic program from fourteen constituent campuses scattered in nine districts of Far-Western Province of Nepal.

The FWU has started four years of Bachelor program in Agriculture inside the premise of Tikapur Multiple Campus (TMC), about 125 km to the east from university headquarter near to the Karnali river. TMC is the single one quality assured and accredited (QAA) constituent college of the FWU scattered in about 220 hectares of land. Agriculture is one of the younger faculties of the university with the capacity of 100 students per batch starting from the academic year 2017/18. Overlooking to the huge scope of academic development in allied branches of agriculture at Far-western Province, the Agriculture faculty of FWU is planning to affiliate three different colleges by the name of College of Animal Sciences with bachelor program in Animal Science, which gradually will be developed in Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry. The Fisheries and Forestry colleges will be the next milestone of the agriculture faculty at FWU. Moreover, the planning for opening master programs in Agricultural Statistics and Agro-meteorology are favoured by its attached geographical location with the renowned and primer Indian Universities like Pantangar and Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI).  As per the national level multi-university concept in the country, the Agriculture faculty of FWU makes academic and educational atmosphere more fair, discipline and result-oriented.
