The international master's program Horticultural Science trains experts in the fields of breeding and production of horticultural plants and addresses one of the core issue of our time: securing high quality and adequate nutrition for the world population by conserving ecological, economic and social resourcesat at the same time.

The study program covers the whole area of horticultural production. Abstract lessons are supplemented by practical modules to a high degree. The research oriented education gives the students insight into bioscientific methodology and prepares them for national and international research and development positions in the plant science sector.

The international master's program in Horticultural Science is a cooperation between the Technical University of Munich, and five partner universities, which bring site specific research and teaching expertise to the program. Students can create an individual competency profile for themselves, thanks to that structure.

In 2008 and 2013 the Master Horticultural Science was awarded with the European Unions Erasmus Mundus award. This honor is received by international master degree programs, which raise the quality of European university education and promote intercultural exchange.
