The current day UAF is a public university whose primary focus remains on agricultural and agrarian development, offering courses in subjects such as farming, food engineering, veterinary sciences and animal husbandry. In more recent years, UAF has also expanded its academic portfolio to include courses in a diverse range of subjects across the natural sciences, social sciences, the arts and business management.
The main university campus is situated at the centre of Faisalabad, Pakistan’s third most populous city. As a large campus, it incorporates a number of green open spaces and combines modern and classical architecture, as well accommodation for a significant number of its students.
