environment in 2003. Admission to the program is limited to Bachelor's degree
graduates in land, water and environment or similar disciplines of agriculture
This program focuses on the preparation of students to work as
researchers and prepare them to work in the field of scientific research and
completion of the study to obtain a doctorate. The topics of student research
in this program include topics related to soil management and land use
planning, irrigation scheduling, irrigation water management, GIS , remote
sensing and environmental systems modelling.
The courses are taught by the academics from the department and
school of agriculture where the study expands on what the students studied in
the bachelor's degree and help them to carry out scientific research and
conduct field and laboratory experiments. The graduates of the program may work
in the research centres of different ministries, educational institutions and
universities, and the private sector.
