Our departments, the facilities of the experimental farm and modern laboratory equipment serve as a basis of valuable scientific results, supported by current methods of molecular biology, climatology, environmental and chemical analysis. Our students can specialize in different horticultural areas as follows: – fruit growing – medicinal plant production – floriculture and dendrology – vegetable and mushroom growing – viticulture and oenology After graduation, students will be experts in organising and leading the production and marketing of horticultural enterprises of different size and character, carry out the tasks of managers, counsellors, engineers, take part in research and education. Beside the special horticultural modules (ornamentals, fruits, medicinal plants, vegetables, grape and wine), the study programme includes genetics, physiology, ecology, biometrics and related subjects. Theoretical lectures, field visits, lab and farm practices are all involved in the master programme. The courses are completed by a 4 weeks farm practice period, including a one-week study trip visiting the leading horticultural enterprises.
