Animal husbandry : which deals with a wide range of activities relating to animal breeding techniques which are managed by the Circle.
Crop husbandry : Where there are several tasks linked to plant science technique whose interests converge with those of the Circle.

– Ensuring a regular exchange of knowledge between students – students, students -educators as well as students – working professionals in agroenvironmental field through debates inspired by scientific experiment.
– Weekly presentations :
Weekly presentations and debates are held on mondays in one of the university halls so that each committee could at least have one special day of knowledge exchange between students.
