About

Course overview

The Animal Science - Animal Production Management course at Poznan University of Life Sciences was developed through international cooperation with other European universities of high renown in the area of agricultural sciences, as well as national economic partners, e.g. companies operating in the sector of animal breeding and feed production. The course is based on the module system of classes and lectures improving intensity and efficiency of the teaching/learning process. It is focused on providing students with skills required on the labour market through interaction with highly qualified faculty and professionals during practical classes (student projects, laboratory and field classes) as well as traineeships. By gaining practical experience, students learn to connect scientific principles with the end product. We invite students who are eager to gain knowledge about biostatistics, elements of genetic engineering, genetics of quantitative traits, genomic selection, regulation of alimentary tract functions, technology of feed mix production, reproduction biotechnologies, animal disease prevention, principles of organic animal management and protection of gene resources. Our students will also receive training in management of animal farms and farm work organization, animal production extension services and farm bioassurance.
