Key facts

Ghent University's programme of the Master of Science in Agro - and Environmental Nematology is unique in the world and aims to train highly qualified nematologists with a multidisciplinary knowledge in the diverse fields of Nematology. Therefore, the courses deal with fundamental as well as applied aspects of Nematology and concern all groups of nematodes and all possible environments (natural soils, agricultural soils, aquatic sediments of freshwater, brackish and marine habitats). The programme is multidisciplinary in its approach both within the fields of biology and agro-engineering. The main aims of the programme are oriented towards positions in research and advice towards agronomy and environmental issues for industry and government.


The International Master of Science in Agro- and Environmental Nematology prepares students for a career in very diverse fields and environments. Their work can vary between teaching, research in universities and laboratories in governmental institutions and industry and providing advice services to the general public, farmers or governmental policies. 

The multidisciplinary approach allows nematologists to be active both in the field of biology and agro-engineering and medicine, work in sophisticated laboratories (advanced molecular and genetic research) as well as in suboptimal conditions where there is hardly any basic equipment as in some developing countries.
