College of Natural and Computational Sciences


College of Natural and Computational Science was launched at the 1st establishment of Wolkite University in 2004 E.C. The college, one of the first colleges in wolkite University then, had only two departments, known as Biology and Physics.

The College of Natural and Computational Sciences in its more than 6 years of establishment has gone through various stages of development. Currently, the College encompasses seven departments offering undergraduate degrees.

The objectives of undergraduate program in science are:-

  1. Produce skilled and well-trained manpower who are capable of taking up positions in the growing demand of the various sectors of the economy such as various industries, and learning institutions, research institutions, as well as various environmental conservation endeavors of  the country;
  2. Disseminate knowledge in science and related areas through active participation in related professional activities, such as Regional Networking, Workshops, Symposia and Publications;
  3. Develop capabilities for the provision of consultancy and technical services as well as short term specialized training to both public and private sectors.

 Teaching learning Core process

Since the main objective of establishing universities throughout the country is to transfer knowledge. College of natural and computational science works for Excellency in teaching learning process. Based on the policy of Ministry of education the college begins to implement modular approaches in 2005 E. C. Students are evaluated through continuous assessment to get their weakness area and remedial action is given. To make the teaching learning process practical, the college tries to establish laboratory class and currently our laboratory satisfied more than 90% of our needs of practical Section.

 Research and Community service

One of mission of higher institutes is developing a problem solving research. In this regard the college has done more than 40 research works so far. College’s weekly seminar presentations have boundless role in promoting the research habit of the staff members and students. In the last seminar presentation, students were participated. In the near future the college plan to conduct many researches that solve the basic problem of the community.

 Regarding community service, staff members give Tutorial service for different high school students, organizing laboratory different high school in Gurage zone.
