The Faculty of Agriculture and Technology is one of the oldest faculties in South Bohemia and in more than 50 years of existence, it has reflected modern trends in the development of agricultural sciences. The prestige of the faculty is continuously increased by internal and external cooperation as well as by its scientific results, expert and consulting services. The concept of the faculty increases graduate employment as well as encourages scientific and research integration on the national and international scale.
Research activities of the faculty primarily consist of applied research with an emphasis on the economy of marginal areas and the problems of permanently sustainable development. An important part of the research is aimed at the quality of the agricultural production, and areas under special regimes (national parklands, biospheric reservations, water protection zones etc.).
Furthermore, the employability of graduates is greatly improved by the experience they can gain in the management of farms, companies, and other similar enterprises at the regional and national levels.
