The 2nd Cycle Degree Course (Master Degree) in Agricultural Science and Technology forms highly qualified professionals with basic and applied scientific knowledge in the areas of crop and livestock productions. Graduate students are able to recognize and manage the innovation in the agricultural sector. Particular attention is paid to the development of sustainable productions with emphasis to those typical of the Mediterranean basin, in order to protect agricultural resources and improve quality and quantity of agricultural production with a positive impact on the profitability of the sector.
In this context, it is important the identification, valorization, and improvement of genetic resources as well as the optimization of cultivation techniques. It is also relevant the training on scientific and methodological aspects related to the crop protection through the application of integrated control models and the use of effective and reliable detection methods.
