College of Agricultural Engineering Sciences

The College of Agricultural Engineering Sciences was one of the two colleges instated when the University of Duhok was initiated in 1992, over an area of 100 acres (160 donums), 15 km west of Duhok designated for agricultural research purposes. This allocated land is irrigated by local springs for growing rice, tomatoes, sesame, and other crops. Now, there is about a hundred acres of agricultural land with two artesian wells for growing grains, legumes, and other summer and winter crops. 

In addition, there is an orchard of olive and almond trees that is irrigated by a spray system. The College also possesses two air conditioned greenhouses, several plastic houses; a well equipped plant tissue culture laboratory, two lath houses, an apiary field, and fields where poultry, sheep, fish and cows are raised.
