DSC00732

Professional undergraduate study in Plant Production – Horticulture lasts for 6 semesters. Prior to graduation, a student is obliged to gain 180 ECTS.

Upon completion of the professional undergraduate study in Plant Production with specialization in Horticulture, a student is awarded the qualification of

Professional Bachelor - Engineer of Plant Production  

Students enrolled in the study program of Plant Production, orientation in Horticulture, gain knowledge in almost all branches of agricultural production, in particular knowledge that is required for work with horticultural plants. The study program enables horticultural experts to independently manage technological processes in all segments of horticultural production. The study program is set up in form of lectures, exercises, seminars, and professional practice, as well as other forms of teaching, with the aim to enable graduates to apply technological and economic achievements in horticultural production in a creative way. Teaching content provides students with a level of knowledge needed for successful dealing with tasks related to horticulture and agriculture on small and large family farms.

Upon graduation, Professional Bachelor – Engineer of Plant Production is able to:

  • distinguish the most important characteristics of fruit, vegetable, flower and vineyard cultures
  • propose visual solutions for green areas
  • identify the major biological, chemical, soil, environmental, ameliorative and technological factors in production of plants
  • propose appropriate protection of specific plant sorts
  • independently coordinate less demanding technological processes in the field of plant production (fruit, vegetable, flower, viticulture and landscaping)
  • manage small agricultural farms

recognize possibilities for continuing education and lifelong learning in order to be able to use modern technology, skills and methods in plant production

In its structure and realization, the study program is comparable with similar programs organized in the European Union member states. Professional study program in Plant Production, orientation in Horticulture, is developed according to the model of professional studies offered worldwide (e.g. Greenmount College-Northern Ireland, Modesto Junior College-California, Harper Adams College-GB, etc.), with the intention to educate experts who would significantly contribute to the increase in vegetable, flower, fruit production, as well as in viticulture, and who would be able to independently create conceptual designs for landscape architecture.

The professional study program is carried out in CSB premises that are appropriately equipped for teaching. There are well-equipped laboratories, computer rooms and practicums, as well as experimental plots with necessary machinery required for practical teaching. Subsistence and accommodation of students is provided in the Student Dormitory in Slavonski Brod.
