As one of the leading countries in plant production, the Netherlands is a popular base for many head offices of global seed companies. In this programme, you will conduct a real-life research project with a small team of students, commissioned by a plant breeding, plant production or plant health company. Statistics and trial design classes will support you in your experiments.
You will take classes in Plant Physiology & Photosynthesis, Plant Breeding, Plant & Soil Health, Statistics and Experimental design, among others. The curriculum includes several visits to plant breeding companies and other classes to help you develop soft skills such as communication and presentation.
