Objective

Based on current scientific knowledge and contemporary teaching process, students will be able to acquire generic and field specific competencies that are needed to achieve sustainable development goals and to work in different fields of viticulture and enology. The objective is to make students qualified for research in scientific fields of grapevine biology and ecology, ampelography, winemaking biochemistry and microbiology and grape and wine production technology, conducted at higher education and scientific research institutions as well as for further education at the postgraduate study level. Furthermore, it enables students to start self-employment and manage various jobs in the production of grapevine, wine, grapevine planting material, machinery and equipment as well as in professional institutions and state and local administration, state agencies, advisory and distribution centres and consulting companies.

Learning outcomes

  1. Describe the plant anatomy and explain the biochemical and physiological processes in the plant with the aim to ensure proper selection of technological practices in the production and processing of horticultural species.
  2. Select and apply contemporary analytical-chemical, genetic, biometric and statistical methods in horticultural production and scientific research.
  3. Explain the genetic background of species origin and argue the need and method of preserving biodiversity as well as to develop and maintain breeding programmes of horticultural species.
  4. Distinguish horticultural species and the most important varieties and analyse suitability for the specific production, environmental and market conditions.
  5. Analyse the suitability of environmental conditions for growing horticultural species and varieties and explain the relationship between genotype and environment.
  6. Organize production of seed and planting materials of horticultural species.
  7. Plan and organize the production of horticultural species for various purposes outdoors and indoors and critically evaluate technological solutions respecting the principles of sustainable development.
  8. Recommend contemporary management practices in horticultural species establishment and to select the appropriate technology line of machinery and equipment.
  9. Distinguish the most important pests of horticultural species and recommend ways of their control aimed at cost-effective and organically sustainable production.
  10. Recognise technological maturity and organize harvest, storage and processing of horticultural raw materials for various purposes. Manage the physiological, microbiological and biochemical processes during storage of raw materials and products.
  11. Determine the quality, health and scientific value of horticultural products based on their chemical and sensory characteristics and to identify the defects and causes of their origin.
  12. Lead or participate in multidisciplinary research or production team in national or international environment and present results of scientific research and professional activities.
  13. Acquire knowledge for further education on postgraduate doctoral and specialist studies.
  14. Organize establishment and management of farms and small or medium-sized enterprises in the field of horticultural production.
