A group of scholars from Nazareth Technical College and investors conceived in their minds the importance of opening a college in Adama, to fill the gap and curb the country’s shortage of skilled manpower. Need identification had been conducted to determine which fields should get the priority.

Based on the findings, the founders made necessary pre-operation preparation and started teaching in Adama and Assela in October 2000 and January 2001. The health Faculty of Adama and Addis Ababa Campus began instruction in the first semester of 2003.
