Institute of Agriculture and Animal Science (IAAS) was established in 1972 in Rampur, Chitwan as a constituent institute of Tribhuvan University (TU), Nepal. The mission of the institute is to promote agricultural science and to train manpower for agricultural development focusing on teaching, research and dissemination of agricultural technologies. As government of Nepal made a policy in 2010 to establish Agriculture and Forestry University (AFU) at Rampur, Chitwan, AFU had taken the physical properties and other assets of IAAS before minute preparation and agreement on handover process between TU and AFU. Consequently, IAAS dean office was shifted to Kathmandu in 2011 and is continuing its programs and activities in the dean's contact office Sanepa, Lalitpur and Kirtipur, Kathmandu. It is working hard to strengthen its academic as well as administrative activities and going to have its own land from TU in its premises and planning to construct academic and other buildings in near future.
