What We Do

Mwalimu Julius K. Nyerere University of Agriculture and Technology is geared to spearhead community and national development through generation of technically and business skilled graduates. 

MJNUAT seeks to produce job creators; who would employ themselves as well as others as opposed to job sekers. The university product is expected to provide the “state of the art” advisory/extension services to the public, aside from being able to venture into farming, agro-processing, trade and other forms of industrial business.

MJNUAT seeks to offer technical training and alternative training that empowers youths, women, farmers and Small and Micro Enterprises (SME) operators with skills needed in improving employability and productivity.  The University also aspires to optimize its societal- and industry-responsive research competency and to be proactive in delivering technologies and innovation to stakeholders and in achieving this, MJNUAT seeks to work through and with communities and industrial sector, including civil societies. 

The University is committed to strengthening its participation in production ventures that are intertwined within the frameworks of training, research and outreach mandates.  The other focus area is generation of graduates with adequate business skills and competencies to enable them venture into commercial farming, agro-processing and other forms of science-based ventures including agri-entrepreneurship.

This will be achieved through mounting various forms of business incubation and cluster linkage initiatives.  The university will also foster this mandate by forming an Entrepreneurial Service Support Unit that will help graduates to be navigated through their business ventures by offering requisite business mentor-ship support.
