Adama Science and Technology University (formerly known as Nazareth Technical College, Nazareth College of Technical Teachers Education, and Adama University) is a university with branches in Adama city and a branch in Asella, and Debre Zeyit cities, Oromia Region, Ethiopia and also in Addis Ababa (Winget campus). he university was established in 1993 as Nazareth Technical College (NTC), and was later renamed as Nazareth College of Technical Teacher Education (NCTTE), specializing in training technical teachers until 2003. The same college became a university, namely Adama University (AU), in 2006. Five years later, the university once again changed its name to Adama Science and Technology University (ASTU). Currently, the university is located in two different towns-in Adama, the main campus, and Asella, home to the two different campuses hosting the School of Agriculture and School of Health Sciences, respectively. Starting from 2011, the university is moving towards a new phase of transformation that is befitting to the country context. It has restructured its Schools and is already underway to set up new institutions, in addition to the existing ones, so as to foster quality of education. Currently, the number of academic entities has reached seven Schools, and a separate School has also been established to coordinate all the postgraduate studies. The university has ratified a Five-Years Strategic Plan and Senate Legislation that will allow for the achievement of its vision- ASTU aspires to become a first choice in Ethiopia and one of the distinguished universities dedicated to excellence in applied sciences and technology in Africa. For this vision to materialize, the university community is working towards joining the real world with the academia. And an instance of this could be the initial steps towards creating a Research Park in our university, the first of its kind in the Ethiopian context. This Research Park would be an Industrial area with all its facilities devoted to research and development issues, thereby allowing the university community, students and staff alike, as well as industries, to join forces. .Ref. The university is also extending its collaboration with other parties, both local and international. For this to be realized, the university has signed Memorandum of Understanding and received letter of intents from various institutions.
