Welcome to the Faculty of Natural Resources and Spatial Sciences at the Namibia University of Science and Technology.  The Faculty’s mission promotes personal and academic advancement of students by conveying knowledge and skills required in the sustainable utilization and management of natural resources.  If you yearn to contribute to the sustained national economic growth and competitiveness, this is the right Faculty for you! 

The Faculty is comprised of four Departments, namely:

Within a stimulating and friendly environment, we offer a wide range of qualifications ranging from diplomas to doctorate degrees. We use a diverse, yet practical, approach to understand environmental challenges. Our programmes are geared towards national development and enhancement, as we strive to build the capacity required to meet the regional transformation challenges such as poverty reduction, land reform, eco-tourism, sustainable agriculture and food security, environmental and ecological sustainability for sustainable socio-economic development.

We collaborate with national and international partners.  Our undergraduate programmes are complimented by internationally recognised research, focused on land tenure and its sustainable use.  It is an exciting and inspiring Faculty to hone your knowledge and skills for your chosen career path.

On behalf of the Faculty, I would like to invite you to engage with us.  We are an email or phone call away.
