IV. CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE BETTERMENT OF THE FACULTY OF FORESTRY

1.  Promotion of the Dept. of Forestry into a Faculty of Forestry

As soon as my appointment as a Head, Dept. of Forestry in 1991, I initiated, guided and led a project leading to the promotion of the ex Dept. of Forestry into a full Faculty of Forestry. I presented and defended the promotion at all the University of Khartoum Boards and Committees. Eventually, and due to the excellent presentation and defense of the submission, it was approved unanimously at all University Boards and Committees. I was then appointed as the first Dean of the Faculty. I supervised the establishment of four departments namely; Silviculture, Conservation and Protection, Products and Industries and Dept. of Forest Management including placement of the senior and junior staff. Due to the success I achieved I was reappointed as a Dean of the Faculty of for three more years.

 

2. Faculty New Buildings

            Due to successful efforts I was able to allocate a spacious building which is composed of three blocks each comprised of four floors, for the future development of the Faculty. Now the Faculty of Forestry is occupying this building in Shambat Campus.

 

3. Establishment of a Seed Pathology Laboratory

            I established the only well equipped laboratory in the Faculty of Forestry for Seed Pathology. That was due personal efforts and contacts with DANIDA (Danish International Development Agency) which donated all the necessary equipment and materials as a reward for the excellent research I did in Denmark at the Institute of Seed Pathology during my sabbatical leave in Jan – Nov. 1989.

 

4. Introduction of new university degrees:

  Diploma in Forestry.

  B. Sc. Forestry (Honours) by Distant Learning.

  M. Sc. in Forest Management and Extension

5. Establishment of the Forest Entomology laboratory

6. Establishment of a small laboratory for wood technology.

7. Rehabilitation and furnishing of three lecture rooms.

8. Rehabilitation of offices for the staff and administration.

 

V. MEMBERSHP OF PROFESSIONAL SOCIETIES

  1. New York Academy of Science (elected 1994).

  2. Sudanese Foresters Society.

  3. Sudanese Society for Environment Conservation.
