Biotechnologies, precision approaches, adaptation to climate change, biodiversity, care for vineyard soil health and conservation are only some of the major topics that the new curriculum will cover.

The Sustainable Viticulture and Enology course at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is delivered entirely in English to allow maximum internationalization and cultural exchanges.

Final thesis will be mandatorily experimental, and each graduating studying will join one the research groups at the Faculty and be assigned to a specific project. Many links existing with different stakeholders (cooperatives, single estates, wineries, wine companies, etc.) will also foster extra-curriculum internships as well as final employment.
