Plants form the basis of life as they convert sunlight into an inexhaustible source of food and renewable raw materials. Plants also have a stabilising effect in (agro-) ecosystems, a landscape function and ornamental value. In a nutshell, we can't do without plants. The Plant Sciences are linked to a sector that is very important to the international economy. They are a field of biology that focuses on all aspects of crop production, ranging from plant breeding and the development of propagation methods to the production of food, food ingredients, pharmaceuticals, high quality products and raw materials. The Plant Sciences programme has been designed to help meet the worldwide demand for scientific expertise in the development of plant and crop production and farming systems. It not only covers the technological aspects of crop production, but also deals with important environmental, quality, health and socio-economic aspects. Interdisciplinarity is a hallmark of the programme.
The MSc Plant Sciences offers seven specialisations:
Natural Resource Management
Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources
Plant Pathology and Entomology
Quality and Supply of Fruits and Berries
Vegetable Production and Supply Systems
Graduates in Plant Sciences are university-trained professionals who are able to contribute to the sustainable development of plant production at various integration levels, based on their knowledge of fundamental and applied plant sciences and their interdisciplinary approach. Graduates with a research focus are employed at universities, research institutes and biotech or agribusiness companies. Other job opportunities can be found in management, policy, consulting and communication in agribusiness and governmental and non-governmental organisations.
