Agricultural and Food Sciences @ LaStatale

Since 1935 Milan University's Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences has focused on educational and scientific aspects of links among agriculture, food and the environment, actively participating in the development of the regional and national agricultural-food system.

The only one of its kind in Lombardy, the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences is also the largest in Italy. Its scientific and educational activities stem from the contribution and collaboration among three different departments:

  • Agricultural and Environmental Sciences: Production, Landscape, Agroenergy

  • Food, Environmental and Nutritional Sciences

  • Environmental Science and Policy.

The Faculty offers 7 bachelor's programmes and 9 master's programmes, along with 2 doctoral research programmes and numerous postdoctoral programmes.

The large quantity of high quality scientific publications bear witness to the faculty's lively, intense research activity, both basic and applied, which is undertaken within the framework of numerous projects funded by both public and private bodies, including the EU.

Modern laboratories, three University-owned experimental farms and an interesting complex of greenhouses for experimentation and education purposes, enrich the quality of its training programmes. The growing network of agreements provides increasing opportunities for internships and job placement in organizations and companies and for completing periods of study or research abroad.
