When you first read the name of the university, it may sound slightly confusing, right? What do they mean by “life sciences”? Well, the answer is actually rather simple – agriculture. But don’t think that at the university you will learn how to work on fields by yourself. No. This is modern agriculture complemented by newest technology and science, this is what you will study.
As mentioned in the introduction, the university consists of 6 faculties. All of them are focusing on agriculture and environment in general, except for one – the faculty of economics and management, so let’s start with this one. This faculty is ideal for everyone who wants to learn more about entrepreneurship, gain practice by working on projects, learn basics in administration and IT, and improve social abilities. Well, you can still use this knowledge to work in agricultural companies, so it’s not completely off topic, right? If this is not for you, but you prefer studies regarding the environment, then consider the faculty of agrobiology or the faculty of environmental sciences. The former focuses on studies, such as gardening or natural resources, while the latter specializes in ecology, geographic systems (using technology to try to solve global environmental issues), and environmental protection of all kinds (water protection, landscapes protection etc.).
Then what about the remaining 3 faculties? The faculty of forestry and wood sciences speaks for itself. Everyone who is interested in wood production, wood protection, or even managing forests (growing trees and watching over the ecosystem there), then that faculty equals paradise for you. If you want to study something more exotic, then what about the faculty of tropical Agrisciences? There you will focus on tropical crop production, animal husbandry, and even natural resources protection, everything regarding tropical agriculture. Sounds interesting, right? And last, but not least, every modern agriculture needs to be supported by technologies. That’s what the faculty of engineering mainly focuses on. There you will learn everything regarding agriculture machinery, how they work, how to maintain them, how to operate them and so on. Aside from that, you can also study about waste treatment or road transport.
