Sustainability for nature and mankind
The growing civilization faces an extreme challenge regarding its sustainable development. The natural resources are under pressure which never happened before. Management of resources that serve mankind is highly needed. A failure in proper use of natural resources means future failure of the civilization.

The main focus of our programme is exploitation of natural resources tightly connected to food production. Soil and water are the key players in the story.
Our programme is designed to provide its students with a strong knowledge of the studied topics and with a strong theoretical background in specialised classes.
