Bachelor's degree in Agricultural, Environmental and Landscape Engineering

2017-2018 academic year

The bachelor's degree in Agricultural, Environmental and Landscape Engineering combines training in agricultural and environmental sciences and biology to produce specialists in the production of crops and the management of the natural environment and landscape. You will receive multidisciplinary training in areas such as environmental management systems; water resource use; landscape design; implementation of green spaces; ecosystems and biodiversity; fruit and vegetable production; and plant propagation and nursery techniques. You will also learn the fundamentals of engineering technology, which will enable you to design green spaces and carry out environmental conservation and improvement, landscaping and fruit and vegetable production projects.

The programme includes fieldwork and laboratory and computer practicals that provide training in crop production and environmental recovery techniques, the management and design of green spaces, and the economic viability of companies and cooperatives devoted to fruit and vegetable production, landscaping and gardening, and environmental management.
