Short description of the study programme
The five-year undivided Agricultural Engineer Program is a program where the theoretical and practical knowledge form an elemental unit. The Program means an elite/unique training in the field of agricultural science. Students get to know the most important basic sciences (Chemistry, Agricultural Botany, Basic of Plant Physiology, Zoology, Animals Health, Animal Physiology, Soil Science, Mathematics, Informatics, Microbiology, etc.).After the diverse interdisciplinary basic sciences training begins the teaching of those professional subjects which give the most important knowledge of agricultural science (Crop Production, Animal Husbandry, Horticulture, Marketing, Animal Nutrition, Farm Business Management, etc.) During the program students participate in practical training in their study period and in the summer months, too.
Students get involved in the research-scientific work of basic and professional departments, where they can work on independent projects. The conditions of laboratories, experimental garden and experimental stations at the Faculty provide complete theoretical and practical training. For the practical training we facilitate all available connections with the companies, experimental farms and model-farms in the region. The Colleges for Advanced Studies and Scientific Students’ Associations conduce the prospects of the most talented students’ further learning. We ensure possibilities for students to make mobility for studies at universities of EU countries. After the five-year program students write their thesis and end their studies with a final exam.
The five-year Agricultural Engineer Program means an elite program in which we train students not only to apply their professional knowledge but to learn to develop their practical knowledge, too. The wide range of multidisciplinary educational content means the basis to work in researching, public administration or other fields.
