The philosophy for our degree programme is to produce graduates with in-depth knowledge in both theory and practical.  The degree programme of Plant Science and Biotechnology at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike is to develop properly, highly trained professionals, who are well grounded on theoretical and practical academic works which will enable them to cope with a broad spectrum of challenges of self-reliance in industrialization, national development and be of immense value to a wide range of global public and private enterprises.
