The use of modern technology has transformed also agriculture. Nowadays, concepts like sustainability and protection of the environment are closely linked to growing crops and food production.
The agricultural sector requires a type of knowledge that goes beyond the borders of individual disciplines and constant professional development in order to keep up to date with the latest developments in the field.
In the third year of Agricultural, Food and Mountain Environmental Sciences at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano you will specialise in one of the following fields according to the chosen path:
- Agricultural Production
