Faculty of Environment and Resources Development

Thanks for visiting the Faculty of Environment and Resource Development (FERD) website. We would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors and in particular to our students.
FERD is comprised of three departments, the Department of Environmental Science, Department of Geography and Department of Natural Resources.

In the Faculty of Environment and Resource Development we are committed to being student-centered, creating learning environments that are challenging, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and skill-based. Our goal is to educate and train the next generation of professional leaders in the domains of environmental science and natural resource management.

In the face of climate change, water scarcity, energy challenges, urban sprawl, pollution, over-consumption,  waste management, diminishing natural resources,  species extinction (rapid global environmental change) -  solutions to these issues require new approaches in meeting the needs of learners. The Faculty of Environment and Resource Development (FERD) at Egerton University is the place to critically examine these and other environmental problems so as to craft solutions that are tenable  and sustainable. We are committed to preparing our students, both undergraduates and postgraduates, for new and emerging environmental challenges that are characterised by complexity, uncertainty, interactivity and rapid change across space and time.

We invite you to browse our web site to explore the many existing opportunities  that we are currently offering in the Faculty and are planning to offer in the very near future. Please also go through our Faculty members' profiles. FERD may just be the place you've been looking for. We hope you will join us in our efforts to create a more equitable, more just, and more sustainable world.
