In the Department of Horticulture, undergraduate and graduate education is given on viticulture, fruit growing, vegetable growing, and ornamental plants breeding and breeding. Our department started postgraduate education in 1992 and doctorate education in 2008. In our department, topics such as the preservation of horticultural products and their preparation for the market, standardization, biotechnology, collection, preservation and evaluation of genetic materials, seed growing, nursery breeding, horticultural crops breeding, greenhouse production techniques, quality characteristics and quality preservation are covered in detail.
The changes in the quality understanding that stand out in the export of horticultural products, especially in the EU countries, and in the domestic market of our country, especially in the process of Integration with the European Union, are emphasized in the lessons and new lessons are developed in this context.
Since the income from the cultivation of horticultural products is generally higher than other plant production areas, the interest in this subject is increasing day by day.
In our country, there is a need for trained personnel in greenhouse cultivation, dwarf fruit cultivation and nursery cultivation in recent years.
One of the most important goals of the Horticulture Department is to help meet this need.
