A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.
Agricultural science encompasses a wide area of topics, and classes can be taken at schools all over the world. Topics include food science, farming, forest technology, agroecology, veterinary medicine, biological engineering, wildlife technology and crop science.
Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

About the Institute
The Institute of Biological & Environmental Sciences (IBES) was established in 2007 as the research wing of the School of Biological Sciences. It was the third research Institute to be formed within the College of Life Sciences and Medicine. At the time of formation the other two Institutes are the Institute of Medical Sciences and the Institute of Public Health Sciences. IBES is run by a director who is advised by a management group. Since this time the college has been joined by the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health
The IBES comprises three research programmes (Ecology, Integrative Physiology and Biological Interactions in Soil) involving a total of 55 full time academic staff and their research groups. This includes about 80 post doctoral research staff and 150 PhD students. Current active research grants total approximately £21M (c. 22M €uros, 30M US$).... [-]

Master in Forestry
Programme Length:MSc 12 months full-time PgDip 9 months full-time PgCert 4 months full-time
The aims of the programme are to provide expertise relevant to multiple-use forestry. A broad range of modules are available that cover forest ecology and silviculture, forest planning and management, forest conservation, forest pathology, urban forestry and environmental governance. Programme modules can be selected to serve the interests of professional foresters wanting to upgrade their knowledge in the fields of forest management planning, tropical forestry and environmental issues, or the interests of graduates wishing to obtain a broad introduction to forestry. Our graduates find employment both in Britain and further afield, some within industry, others in government agencies, conservation, development, or research. The MSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Forestry share common teaching for nine months after which the Masters degree students spend a further three months preparing a thesis or dissertation. Teaching uses a range of media: lectures, seminars and discussions, case studies, practical and field exercises. Each student must participate in a minimum of four modules in each semester, the choice being made following discussion with the programme organiser. Considerable use is made of computers. Students go on a study tour in the Easter vacation; in recent years the study tour has been to forests near Freiberg, Germany. Research towards the thesis may be field or laboratory based. These field studies may be within Scottish forests or overseas.... [-]

Master in Regional and Rural Development Planning (RRDP)
The RRDP focuses on rural poverty, improvement of the quality of life and social and economic development of rural areas. Practice oriented rural-regional planning is carried out regularly at district and sub-district levels following a participatory and integrated approach. Attention is paid to management of development institutions, infrastructure and physical resources. Sectoral and spatial planning is equally emphasized along with the management of rural development programs and local development projects to strengthen rural communities for sustainable development. Selected areas of concern are: poverty analysis; concepts and processes of rural and regional development; community development planning; agricultural development and planning; planning and management of rural development programs and projects; regional planning techniques; rural-urban relations; NGO management policy and development administration; sustainable development theories and practices; and decentralization and governance. ...

Master in Agricultural Systems and Engineering (ASE)
In response to regional demand for professional training, two areas of specialization are offered: Agricultural Systems (AS) and Agricultural Engineering (AE). Students are trained to develop, adopt and disseminate knowledge and technologies that focus on the utilization and management of biological and agricultural systems and natural resources. Both AS and AE are in a productive alliance to complement each other within the wide spectrum of activities being undertaken at Agricultural Systems and Engineering (ASE). The ASE places its emphasis on sustainable agricultural development based on a holistic understanding of agronomic and biophysical production factors, from the perspective of producer and the effects of economic and social forces on agricultural enterprises. It highlights the application of biological sciences, engineering, socio-economic policies and programs, and support services to agriculture to increase the efficiency of agricultural production systems through availability and efficient use of inputs and management of natural resources. Fieldwork and practical exercises have been inseparable from agricultural curricula at ASE. At ASE, we strive to comply with up-to-date methodologies and practices while making the best use of available resources. Through its professional linkages formal or informal, with private and public sectors, ASE has been efficiently handling quality research activities. ... [-]

Master in Pulp and Paper Technology (PPT)
Due to the impact of globalization and the significance of the technology expansion, it became imperative to prepare students in pulp and paper technology in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region. This is especially important because of the strong presence of pulp and paper industries within this region. The government of Finland generously met this need resulting in the establishment in 1996 of the Pulp and Paper Technology Program (PPT) at the Prestigious AIT. The PPT program offers academic and professional curricula with pulp, paper, bio drying and bio refining specializations for candidates with science and engineering backgrounds within the multidisciplinary research and education environment of AIT. The PPT program along with continuing development of course benefiting industry and in cooperation with North American and European research and educational centers aims to channel information about relevant worldwide academic achievements into SEA pulp and paper and allied industries. These industries thus gain innovative ways to compete successfully within the global marketplace.The PPT program of SERD provides students with comprehensive understanding of the pulp and paper industry, its unit processes, environmental aspects and the sustainability of the processes and products. PTT is offering two master's degree options and eight certificate programs with specific focus on core areas of pulp and paper technology.... [-]
