Staff in the Department of Horticulture are mainly involved in teaching courses related to cultivation (the growing of ornamental plants, vegetable production, fruit production, viticulture) and organising the related practical sessions. Besides teaching, they take part in research projects run by the Horticultural Workshop as well as other research centres and producer organisations. Sixty-two percent of the instructors in department hold an academic degree, 25 percent are doctoral students, and 10 percent are habilitated doctors. The teaching staff teach on all the courses offered by the faculty, while also carrying out research projects in the Environmental Science and Analytical Workshop. The department contributes to the service-related activities of the faculty (practice farmland, laboratory), and has implemented numerous successful projects in the framework of awarded tenders.

András Palkovics PhD, Dean

“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
