The Master's Program in Advanced Techniques in Agricultural and Food Research and Development aims to initiate university students in research in this field. The program is based, on the one hand, on the research carried out at the Higher Technical School of Agronomic Engineering and, on the other, on the technological development of the Spanish agricultural and food sector.
This Master's program has as its main objective the training of researchers in the field of agricultural and food development, since all the current indicators show that it is necessary to increase the critical mass of researchers in this area in the EU; Despite the fact that agriculture, from the production phase to the processing and manufacturing phase, has a very wide field in which it is possible to research and innovate, there are certain horizontal work tools that allow training students with excellent technical and application skills. to areas as varied as the environment, genetics and animal and plant improvement, food processing or pest control. These antecedents have led us to formulate a Master's program that has four defined modules, one of methodological courses and three of fundamental courses.
This master gives access to the research stage of the Doctorate in Advanced Techniques in Agricultural and Food Research and Development, distinguished with mention towards excellence by the Ministry of Education for the 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014 courses, verified according to Royal Decree RD99 / 2011.
Study plan favorably evaluated by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation. Authorized its implementation by the Government Council of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia according to Decree No. 269/2009 of July 31.
