Specialisation: Agronomy

The Faculty provides education within the specialisation of Agronomy on the 1st cycle full time engineering studies lasting3.5 years and the 2nd full-time studies which last 1.5 years and end with the professional degree of M.Sc.,  and 4-year extramural engineering studies and 2-year extramural studies which end with M.Sc degree. Subjects required in the recruitment procedure are: foreign language together with one subject to be chosen from the following: Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, IT, Geography, Physics and Astronomy.

The students of Agronomy can choose out of two specialisations: space shaping of agricultural production and plant production in agri- and pratoecosystems.

Graduates of this specialisation obtain wide knowledge in life sciences, mainly in the field of plant production and technology. They become familiar with the rules of economic analysis, management and the principles of company organisation. They master the knowledge of ecology and environment protection, and are fluent in two foreign languages and fine arts: sociology, ethics and the history of rural areas and agriculture. All these skills together with the knowledge of research technology, operation systems and data base service enable the graduate to find employment not only in agriculture but many other sectors of economy and local governments.

Specialisation: Agri-business

The Faculty provides education within the specialisation of Agri-business on the 1st full-time cycle engineering studies lasting 3.5 years, the 2nd cycle full-time studies which last 1.5 years and end with the professional degree of M.Sc., 4-year extramural engineering studies and     2-year extramural studies that end with M.Sc. degree.
