Agriculture and Foodtechnology



Choose your programme type

Agriculture and Foodtechnology

You are fascinated by plants, animals, environment, nature or food

We offer a varied programme with a focus on innovation.

You receive a strong, scientific basis that you can deepen in a specialisation of your choice. Moreover, we extensively deal with current social themes, such as sustainability in agriculture and horticulture, the biobased economy, nutrition, animal welfare, and so on.

On our green campus in Geel, you go from theory to practice: in our greenhouse, in the field, in the orchard, in the large agricultural hall, the machine atelier, the entomo farm, at the algae reactor ... Practice in a safe and yet real environment!
