College of Natural Resources & Environmental Studies


The best way to develop Southern Sudan was believed to be through the rational exploitation of its vast natural resources. Thus, it became one of the main motives for the opening of the College of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies, in 1977, as the prime college in the newly established University of Juba. Since its inception, the College has represented a radical approach to academic development. It provided great opportunities for innovation in which new ideas and concepts, untried elsewhere, were introduced. A graduate of the College of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies, therefore, enjoys broadly-based multi-disciplinary education and training which makes him/her capable of approaching development and the management of natural resources in an integrated manner.
