BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE

During the last decades, the Government of Ethiopia has made enormous efforts to enhance the role of higher education in capacity building and development, and it has been giving great attention to expand and encourage higher education institutions to compete for the “very best minds”. Currently, with intensive expansion of higher education institutions, several young Universities are being opened to meet the needs for qualified professionals in the growing socio-economic development of the country.

University of Gondar is one among other Universities, which have arisen to university level from the previous College, College of Medicine and Health Sciences, with its current status and autonomy in 2004. Accordingly, the College of Natural and Computational Sciences, formerly called Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences, was one of the Foundation Faculties at the inception of the University of Gondar, the then University College of Gondar, in the spring of 2003.

Currently the college has eight departments that has undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
