About the College

History

The College of Natural and Computational Sciences came to being through an evolutionary development process from the then Division of Natural and Social Sciences (DNSS) when Haramaya University was still known as Alemaya University of Agriculture. Then, in 1996 DNSS evolved to Faculty of Education (FOE) with a mission of training teachers for secondary schools. It was offering bachelors degree in various programs of natural and social science fields. In 2008 once again the College of Natural and Computational Sciences evolved from FOE and since then focusing training students in areas of natural sciences.
