     The society offers an opportunity to training engineer's to join the higher education program in the rural development field, through a core-partner and cooperative program, which started in 2000 between the association and Al-Quds University.

     Participate in the development programs in Arab countries; make contact and relations with international institutions, which have a mutual interest in satisfying the local society's needs through development programs. Also in this field the association wanted to support engineers by doing studies and scientific research and carrying out a lot of practical projects in fields that the Palestinian agricultural sector need , and sharing a big rate to decrease the problems facing these sectors and the others that are related.

     The association funded some master programs of a group of researchers, in the subject of rural development with Al-Quds University.

     The association is looking soon to build up a core-partnership and cooperation with program universities that include agricultural studies and development in their programs like Al-Quds Open University and the international American University, to provide an opportunity for engineers to see other local and international experience, in terms of technical and development research. In addition, the association adopts an academic scholarship program for master and higher diploma, courses and training, in Bari institute in Italy through the contact and relations that association made with countries, associations and the institution's friends.
