About

Starting in the winter semester 2005/2006, Justus Liebig University Giessen set up a new international Master’s Degree in Agrobiotechnology to cope with the burgeoning world-wide importance of biotechnology, not least in university education, for plant and animal production, and for the nutritional sciences.

Overview

Justus Liebig University Giessen was the first German university to take up the global challenge of inaurgurating an internationally oriented degree course designed to provide the highest level of academic training for entry into the biotechnology and agriculture sector of the world economy. The overall objective of Giessen’s Master’s program in Agrobiotechnology is to equip scientists in both the traditional ‘pure’ disciplines and in the domains of agriculture and nutrition for coping with managerial tasks at the cutting edge of the agricultural and food sector.

One important educational goal is to teach students practical methods and expertise on a broad scientific basis. Of critical importance in fulfilling this aim are the following factors:

  • research-oriented study
  • the solving of problems in current farming practice
  • the acquisition of international expertise and the fostering of creativity and a willingness to innovate
  • alertness to the need for identifying and assessing the effects of technological processes.
