About

The Soil Science educational program is aimed to train highly qualified Bachelors with fundamental knowledge in natural sciences, able to solve theoretical and methodical tasks related to natural landscapes, soil and vegetation cover, land resources use and construction of artificial grounds (lawns, parks, reclaimed landscapes, etc.). Obtained knowledge and skills are solidified in laboratory trainings and the unique field practices, where a student independently studied soil cover in different ecosystems. The knowledge gained will enable both to continue successfully further education in MSc-course and to apply the obtained skills in industrial sector, in sectors related to the assessment and protection of land resources, analysis of environmental processes, development of modern technologies focused on protection and rational use of natural resources. The graduates are ready to work in the areas related to land resources assessment and protection; analysis, forecast and management of environmental processes in the biosphere; and development of modern technologies focused on conservation and rational use of natural resources.

The educational program in Ecology is implemented by the Faculty of Soil Science; its objective is to train highly qualified Bachelors with fundamental knowledge of natural sciences, able to solve topical problems of theoretical and applied ecology, to use and develop innovative technologies for assessing and managing environmental processes, for scientific transformation and protection of nature. The graduates know classical and new methods of research and equipment. They applied acquired knowledge and skills in different laboratory works and special field practices, where they independently studied soil cover in different ecosystems using classical and modern methods of research. It will allow the graduates to study nature and ecological processes both at a nano-level and on a planetary scale. The graduates are prepared for research, industrial and technological professional activity, management and pedagogic. The Bachelors in ecology are prepared to work in the areas related to analysis, forecast and management of ecological processes in the biosphere, development of modern technologies focused on conservation and rational use of natural resources.

Tuition fees do not include the payment for accommodation, transport charges, and living expenses, any kind of insurance charges, legal costs and other expenses.
