Faculty of Horticulture and Rural Development

Faculty Created: 2016.10.22 14:48 Modified: 2019.04.30 13:01

The Faculty of Horticulture and Rural Development in Kecskemét has been training future horticulturalists for six decades, while study programmes in rural development and agricultural economics were launched 15 years ago. Thanks to the Faculty's high standard of practice-oriented and pragmatic training, its graduates are welcomed with open arms in all segments of agriculture. The practice orientated training is supported by demonstration gardens, training farms and product engineering factory units. The number of partners involved in dual training is increasing.

Why choose the Faculty of Horticulture and Rural Development? 

“Our graduates are engineers who possess both an entrepreneurial spirit and specialised expertise that can be adapted even in the context of a rapidly changing industrial structure. Furthermore, they aren't intimidated by the need to regularly update their knowledge. Thanks to the pragmatic skills acquired at the Faculty, they can create a stable existence for themselves and their families, either as employees or as entrepreneurs, for there is a growing demand for highly qualified professionals who — in addition to their expertise in production — possess adequate knowledge in matters of organisation, marketing, logistics and EU affairs.

“The Faculty's master's programmes endow these new agricultural professionals with skills, competencies and knowledge that is applicable anywhere in Europe. Graduates may pursue their studies in the framework of doctoral programmes or post-graduate specialist courses as well. The latter are also open to students with a bachelor’s degree.”

— András Palkovics, PhD, dean, associate college professor, head of the Practice Farmland and Display Garden
