Agricultural Engineering

Amelioration

The study programme is adapted to the new trends in higher education as well as to the conditions of the labour market in the new economic environment. The course enables development of individual capabilities and meets the requirements of specialised agricultural professionals in the existing and future state and private economic subjects and institutions.

The study course extends over two years (7th, 8th, 9th and 10th semesters). The curriculum comprises 22 modules with a total of 120 ECTS points. Mandatory modules make 28% of the curriculum while elective modules account for 72%, which makes the course highly flexible. Students have the option to spend 1 to 2 semesters studying outside the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb (in Croatia or abroad). Mandatory one-month practical work (between the 8th and 9th semesters) can be also done abroad.

After graduating in Amelioration, students are awarded the title Master of Science and have acquired the knowledge of the status and trends of agriculture in this country and elsewhere in the world, basic elements of agricultural profession and the know-how required for agricultural amelioration. Depending on the group of elective modules passed, graduate Masters of Science possess the competences to run technologically demanding processes associated with agricultural amelioration and land development. They can work on the construction of drainage and irrigations systems in practice, their designing in design offices, as well as on maintenance and management of amelioration systems. Upon completion of this study course, students have the necessary conditions to take up doctoral studies.

Mechanization

The study programme is adapted to the conditions of the labour market in the new economic environment. The graduate programme provides the knowledge and the competences to plan, design and management of mechanization in all segments of agricultural production on field and indoor space, including environmentally friendly use of mechanization. The study programme includes seminar works and individual projects for specific field of mechanization.

The study course extends over two years (7th, 8th, 9th and 10th semesters). The curriculum comprises 24 modules with a total of 120 ECTS points. Mandatory modules make 28% of the curriculum while elective modules account for 72%. The study programme enables 1-2 semesters studying in Croatia or abroad, outside the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb. Mandatory practical work can be also done in Croatia or abroad between the 8th and 9th semesters.

The aim of the graduate programme is to teach candidates to plan and management of mechanization in agricultural production in the existing and future state and private economic subjects and institutions.
