History

Founded 1997. Academic programmes started 1998, in line with the early 1990s shift in the government's policy towards meeting the local, national and international needs for higher education and scientific research, in addition to achieving social and economic development in Sudan in general and El-nuhud district in particular. This district was chosen due to availability and productivity of land and to its worldwide reputation in the field of Gum Arabic cultivation and provision. Animal production farms were built to train students and provide veterinary advice to other animal producers in the nearby localities.
