With the ever increasing global focus on the impact of climate change and the realisation of the benefits of a shift towards plant based foods, the UCD Masters in Horticulture will equip graduates with the skills and knowledge to make significant contributions to sustainable food production and restorative environments that will contribute to human health and well-being. This programme caters for early career graduates working or intending to work in the global dynamic horticulture production and supply industry as well as mature students and those looking for a career change. Horticulture is the science, technology, art and business of cultivating and using plants to improve human life. Horticulturists and Horticultural Scientists create global solutions for safe, sustainable, nutritious food and healthy, restorative and beautiful environments.
Today the supply of horticulture goods and services involves a global network of producers, distributors and retailers. While labour is a significant part of the cost basis for horticulture enterprises, innovation in technology, logistics and management is disrupting the traditional labour intensive model of horticulture businesses. With ever increasing demands from the market place to reduce costs, future horticulture enterprises will require highly educated and skilled individuals who can interpret and apply sound scientific knowledge and utilise modern innovative technologies and management systems to provide sustainable globally relevant horticulture products and services.
