About Faculty of Agrobiotechnical Sciences Osijek

Faculty of Agrobiotechnical Sciences Osijek is part of the Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek and is one of its oldest members. 18 October 2015 marked exactly 55 years of its foundation.

Besides teaching students at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate studies, the major activity of the Faculty is scientific research, primarily in the field of Agriculture and Biotechnology.

Scientific and teaching faculty have the task of educating students, gradually introducing them into the world of basic knowledge about plants, animals and farming technologies so that they could independently manage processes of agricultural production, whose ultimate goal is production of food for human community. In this complex process of education, teachers use their own knowledge of scientific and professional work, and thereby enhance and modernize the education of students. Alongside with the education of students, research assistants together with professors and professional staff are engaged in research in the fields of biology, chemistry, nutrition and protection, genetics of plants and animals, engineering and economics in crop and livestock production, all with the aim of qualitatively and quantitatively improving food production and at the same time reducing production costs and conserving nature, environment and human health.
