Programme overview

A PhD in Agronomy is a Three-year programme that offers an opportunity to study and carry out research in the field. It is an academic degree suitable for those who want to pursue a career in the agricultural field. The programme covers various topics such as soil and plant sciences, crop production and plant breeding, plant physiology and ecology, etc. Agronomists are responsible for developing strategies to improve agricultural productivity, increase food security, and improve environmental quality by improving crop yields, increasing crop diversity, and reducing reliance on chemical pesticides and fertilisers. They also design new agricultural technologies that help farmers increase crop productivity while maintaining or improving environmental conditions.
