AGRICULTURE AND

FOOD SCIENCES

With one of our groundbreaking Agricultural and Food Sciences

courses, you can gain exceptional skills in food production

(from soil and plants to animals and climates) right through to

processing and technologies used to improve food preservation.

Sufficient, healthy and sustainable food is, and will continue to

be, one of the most pressing concerns of our time – not only

in South Africa, but also in Africa as a whole. Experts foresee

that surface water will decrease by as much as 60 per cent in

the next 60 years, and as a matter of urgency, it will become

increasingly important to employ new and effective approaches

to sustainable development.

Covering topics such as sustainable food production, plant

and animal disease, environmental threats and soil fertility, our

courses will enable you to gain an in-depth understanding of

the dynamics within the field and equip you with the necessary

skills to contribute to the food security of our continent.
