Horticultural Sciences from Cape Peninsula University of Technology equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct research in horticulture, and to contribute to knowledge production through the understanding, application and evaluation of existing and new knowledge. The research problem, its justification, process and outcome are reported in a dissertation.
