Short description

The programme provides specialization in agriculture, horticulture, plant biology or plant protection.

You can choose between three study options:

Plant Production Systems, Plant Biotechnology and Plant Protection

Plant Production Systems, focusing on:
• Flowers, fruits, berries and vegetables
• Cereal, fibre and oil plants and diverse fodder plants
• Environmentally sustainable growing methods
• Physiological processes in plants, affected by external conditions (nutrients, temperature, light and daylength)
• How plant breeding are used to meet the marked

Plant Biotechnology, focusing on:
• Understanding of plants function, and how the environment and climate effects on their functions
• Genetics and molecular methods

Plant Protection, focusing on:
• Biology of plant pests, diseases and weeds
• Methods and strategies for protecting plants from pest organisms and reducing competition from weeds

A candidate who has completed the programme is expected to have achieved the following learning outcomes, defined in competence, knowledge and skills:

Knowledge:

  • Demonstrate comprehensive understanding and knowledge of plants, plant production, biodiversity, growth factors, ecology and environmental impact associated with use of plants for food, feed or for ornamental and aesthetic purposes.
  • Display a thorough knowledge of issues in the entire value chain and have specialization in certain disciplines of plant science.
  • Identify problems and present solutions related to agriculture, crop production, urban greening and farmland.

Skills:

  • Apply knowledge to contribute to development, innovation and use of land area and plants in a sustainable manner, within an area of specialization.
  • Apply knowledge in new areas, work independently and collaborate across disciplines with practical and theoretical issues. Analyze and understand methods and theories related to the interaction between plants and growth factors and climate impacts on plants.
  • Analyze scientific issues on the basis of the history, traditions, character of the field, and societal needs
  • Be able to use relevant methods and carry out advanced projects.
  • Analyze, structure and think critically about information sources and scientific literature in the field.

Competencies:

  • Impact of plant use in a national and global context, at present and in a future perspective.
