Following the establishment of Wollo University in 2004, the faculty of agriculture has been launched in 2007 with four departments (plant science, animal science, soil and water resources management and veterinary medicine) in order to create trained manpower in the agricultural sector. With the implementation of the business process reengineering (BPR) in 2010, the department of veterinary medicine organized at school level whereas, the other three departments organized at college level (college of agriculture). Three new departments, namely, rural development and agricultural extension, forestry, and agricultural economics opened under the college of agriculture in 2011. The department of rural development and agricultural extension also began a mid-career program in 2012 to train in-service agricultural development workers in agricultural extension at BSc level based on the request of the Bureau of Agriculture of the Amhara National Regional State (ANRS) to fill the gap of agricultural extension professionals in the field. In 2017, the department of soil and water resources management renamed as natural resources management. Currently, the college of agriculture runs seven programs under the six departments at the undergraduate level.
