Debre Berhan University

Debre Berhan University, which is a 8 year young university, has been established in the 600 years old historical town- Debre Berhan – a town situated in Amhara Region, North Shoa zone and is 130 km away from Addis Ababa in the north. The most powerful explanation of the establishment of the University is the government`s commitment towards the expansion of quality higher education as well as ensuring a reasonable distribution of higher education in the country.

Based on these organizing explanations the foundation stone was laid down on 9th May 2005 G.C by her Excellency w/ro Genet Zewdie, the then ministry of minister of ducation of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

Thereafter, the construction of the university was started on a total land area of 102 hectares which was given by the City administration of Debre Berhan town.

The initial intake capacity of the university in Jan. 2007 G.C(1999 E.c) was not beyond 725 students who joined in to 5 departments with 68 instructors and 7 administrative staffs. But now, (after 7 years), the enrolment has significantly increased to more than  13,000 regular,  extension and summer students who joined in to 33 departments/ programs under four colleges, three schools, one institute and on 4 post graduate program.

Miraculously to its being young, the management fervently and zealously envisions to become one of the best universities in Ethiopia by 2020 G.C.

And hence it is adamantly and unrelentingly working and undertaking massive organizational activities in terms of human resource development and construction with an over view to further enhancing its institutional capacity on areas of producing competent graduates, conducting a problem solving research & offering community services.

Currently, the university is staffed with 666 (first degree to third degree) academic staffs (293 are on study leave), 30 assistant technicians and 278 administrative staffs. By 2007E.C/2015 G.C the intake capacity of the university will have grown to 12,000 regular academic trainees, and staff upgrading and employment will be achieved as planned.
