About Bukura Agricultural College

Overview


Bukura Agricultural College (BAC) is situated in Lurambi Division of Kakamega District, Western Province, Kenya. 

The College is centrally positioned within Western Region of Kenya and serves the region and its environ as a satellite center to benefit other programmes through Education, Research and Extension activities; Information Communication Technology (ICT) transfer; staff development programmes; student exchange programmes among others for future development of the Western Kenya Region.

The college grew out of the former Bukura Institute of Agriculture which  was upgraded to a diploma awarding college in 1992.

The college is a fully government financed institution, run by the Ministry of Agriculture.

The first 15 B.O.G. members for the College were appointed and inaugurated on 26th of August.

The College has since been conducting Diploma and Certificate courses. The degree courses are offered purely in collaboration with other institutions of higher learning.

The increased confidence of employers in their programmes and graduates has seen their enrollment go up from about 300 students in the previous years to about 600 students this year (2009). This is projected to increase to about 1000 students by the year 2012.

Strong linkages exist between local universities, research stations and the College.  Several courses, both long and short, are in progress such as computer-training courses and School Based Degree course in Agricultural Education and Extension.

Late last year, the College entered into yet another collaboration of its kind with two different institutions namely: Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) and a Dutch N.G.O., International Child Support (I.C.S).

These collaborations are geared towards development of the training infrastructure, engaging in exchange programmes and sharing of training facilities and manpower.
