Agricultural Sciences and Technologies
The course provides students with sound basic knowledge of the main spheres of agricultural sciences.
Graduates are qualified to assume technical, managerial and professional roles in the agrobiology sector and related technologies.
On the strength of their knowledge of biology, chemistry, engineering, technology and economics, graduates are qualified to:
- pursue professional occupations in all areas of the agricultural sector: technical and economic company management; the conservation, processing and commercialisation of plant and animal products; the management of rural land and the environment;
- employ effective communication and information management tools and competences;
- work as part of a group, with a set degree of autonomy, quickly integrating themselves into the working environment.
The career opportunities open to graduates in Agricultural Sciences and Technologies include agricultural and zootechnical production, technical assistance, public and private administration, research and teaching.
In particular, graduates can pursue the following occupations:
- the technical and economic management of agricultural and zootechnical resources; the establishment and organisation of technical assistance services; rural integrated development projects;
- the control and protection of rural land;
- the definition and management of company structures;
- the selection and development of technological production facilities;
- security evaluation and control in relation to machines, plants and facilities;
- energy and integrated energy system management;
- applications for environmental protection and agricultural sustainability;
- distribution systems for agricultural productions and their rationalisation;
- the marketing of agricultural products.
Good knowledge of high-school subjects.
Access to the programme is regulated by a compulsory test to ascertain that the student meets admission requirements, i.e. a knowledge of basic scientific disciplines (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology) equal to that provided by high school, and an understanding of elementary logic. The required test is a TOLC CISIA Online Test. You can sit for the TOLC test at the University of Milan or any other member university of CISIA (inter-university consortium for integrated access systems) on multiple dates. Please register on the CISIA website ( www.cisiaonline.it ): the TOLC test providing access to the programme is TOLC-AV. You can find information on the test in the call for applications published on the University website (https://www.unimi.it/en/education/agricultural-sciences-and-technologies). The call will also specify admission procedures for students from other degree programmes of the University of Milan, or from other universities, or already holding a university degree.
Additional Learning Requirements (OFA)
Admitted students who have not achieved the minimum score set out in the call for applications, in the mathematics section, will have to fulfil Additional Learning Requirements (OFA). These requirements can be met through specific remedial activities. Mathematics OFA are prerequisites for all second- and third-year exams. Students who do not attend OFA remedial activities or do not pass the final OFA test will have to pass the Mathematics exam as a prerequisite to take all second- and third-year exams.
To fill any knowledge gaps shown by test results, the Faculty may provide short bridging courses or tutoring activities before or during the programme. Attendance is strongly recommended to all those who have shown any gaps.
The learning agreement is outlined in collaboration with the person in charge for the Erasmus of the degree program, as regards both the choice of courses and the organization of the internship at the partner university. Students must obtain the formal approval of the examinations that they intend to carry out at the host university from professors who hold equivalent or similar teachings at the University of Milan before completing the learning agreement. As regards experimental activities abroad, which can constitute part or the entire program of the internship, a letter of agreement from a professor of the partner university is required, along with the formal approval on the objectives, on the program and on the term of the internship by a professor of the degree program, who will also act as supervisor.
The examination scores and the related UFC obtained in the partner universities are almost entirely acknowledged by our university for the curriculum studies.
Other possibilities exist in terms of cultural exchange with non EU universities (in China, Japan, Latin America) not involved in the Erasmus programme.
