at the Faculty of Animal Breeding and Biology
Award: Master of Science
Master degree in the field of animal science provide graduates with in-depth knowledge in animal breeding and modern animal production technologies, including organization of production processes and farm management. The main focus is on the maintenance of animal welfare and optimal animal productivity, while limiting the negative environmental impact. This course is dedicated to students who would like to gain practical skills and professional competence required to work within the international animal husbandry and production.
The curriculum is based on the experiences gained by the European universities of high renown in the area of agricultural sciences. A significant element is also connected with close academic cooperation with national economic partners, e.g. companies operating in the sector of animal breeding and food production. The course is based on the module system of classes and lectures improving intensity and efficiency of the teaching/learning process. It is focused on providing students with skills required on the labor market through practical classes ( student projects, laboratory and field classes) as well as traineeships.
We invite students who are eager to gain knowledge about biostatistics, elements of genetic engineering, genetics of quantitative traits, genomic selection, regulation of alimentary tract functions, technology of food mix production, reproduction biotechnologies, animal disease prevention, principles of organic animal management and the protection of gene resources. Our students will also receive training on management of animal farms and farm work, animal production extension services and farm bio assurance.
