In addition to classical pedagogical approaches, the programme also includes several additional methods of study that will orient a student towards studying regularly, and emphasise the need for lifelong learning, interdisciplinary and practical issues, project work and group work.
Due to the programm broad scheme, graduates will have employment opportunities in various areas – research laboratories, administrative institutions (ministries, inspectorates, various institutes and municipalities), national and landscape parks, botanical and zoological gardens, museums, and national and international non-governmental organizations.
The main aim of the programme Biotechnology is to provide complete undergraduate education in the field of biotechnology. Basic knowledge of natural science, together with its application in specialized biotechnological contexts, will provide the education required to meet the demands of the most up-to-date technologies and the skills needed in various professions, and will enable a student to continue his/her studies in master study programmes.
Biotechnologists who have completed the academic bachelor study programme will be qualified for critical judgement of relevant biotechnological topics and will have the knowledge and skills needed independently to carry out both traditional and modern biotechnological procedures in agriculture, food science, pharmacy, health care and environmental protection.
The academic bachelor study programme Food science and nutrition is designed to qualify a professional who is capable of wide comprehension of food science and nutrition, with an emphasis on knowledge connected to food science, production, processing, quality and food marketing and nutrition as a natural continuation of food science for balanced, safe nutrition and the normal development and maintenance of human health.
Graduates can be employed in large and small food processing plants, microbiological, physical, chemical and sensory laboratories for the food industry and in laboratories for food quality control, in consumer education, food quality and safety inspection services, in institutional nutrition in factories, health resorts with specific nutrition programmes, services connected to nutrition in public health institutions, centres for the promotion of healthy nutrition, in distributional centres, shops selling food and/or nutritional additives for preservation of health.
The academic bachelor study programme Forestry and renewable forest resources qualifies students for complete ecosystem forest work in accordance with modern principles of close-to-nature, multipurpose and sustainable management. An advantage is the emphasis on individual and seminar practice, which is partially carried out in the forest.
Graduates can obtain employment in public forestry services, organizations for wildlife management and nature conservation, economic organisations and schools. Many opportunities are provided by self-employment - independent entrepreneurs (primary wood processing, forest construction, wood trade, arboriculture, ornamental tree production, ecotourism, private advisory agencies in forestry, biological engineering, spatial planning, mountain area management and sanitation of ecological points).
The academic bachelor study programme Landscape architecture provides education empowering students to analytically define and creatively solve issues on all the levels of spatial planning and landscape design.
The study programme is interdisciplinary in its contents, which means that a student acquires knowledge from numerous fields. The landscape architect is educated in disciplines that provide knowledge required for spatial management, nature conservation and landscape design; natural-ecological, socio-economic, humanistic and cultural, technical, design and planning knowledge; and he/she masters skills such as drawing and three-dimensional design.
Landscape architecture graduates can be employed in project and planning offices, municipal communal services, tree nurseries, and other operational and construction companies.
The academic bachelor study programme Microbiology opens and encourages understanding of the living world, microbial processes and organisms invisible to the human eye and essential for life on our planet.
The programme offers basic natural science knowledge and specialized knowledge of microbial physiology, genetics, taxonomy, biotechnology, ecology, virology, immunology and the role of microbes in medicine.
The basic aims of the study programme are to provide complete undergraduate education in the field of microbiology, which will enable graduates of this programme to use classical and modern methods in microbiology and to make independent decisions in microbiology related themes, and successfully participate and communicate with other profiles in natural science.
The academic bachelor study programme Wood science provides for the basics for continuing studies in master studies in wood science and technology and other fields of study.
