Information about the study programme

The Applied Zoology programme enables students to develop interest at all levels of zoological research (taxonomy, ethology, animal ecology, biodiversity, conservation genetics, etc.) in conjunction with a number of practical branches of human activity (agriculture, the food industry, forestry, environmental protection, etc.) Students gain knowledge of the methodological procedures used in the monitoring and research of animals both in the wild and in laboratories.

Applied Bioclimatology

The main goal of the study is to acquire knowledge and competence to carry out independent scientific creative work in the soil-plant-atmosphere system with an emphasis on the energy and water balance (with and without climate change impacts), which fundamentally affect the functions of ecosystems. As the main research methods, we use mostly process-based modeling, agricultural and forest field experiments, remote sensing and phenological observation.

Applied and Landscape Ecology

The Applied and Landscape Ecology degree programme stretches across a number of disciplines, placing emphasis on ecological and environmental issues concerning landscapes used for agriculture and on sustainable farming in a rural landscape. Both purely fundamental research of a mostly technical character and applied research of relationships, bonds and processes from the ecosystem level to the landscape as a whole are included in the programme.

Biological Chemistry

The unique combination of purely chemical disciplines with biological disciplines in this program creates prerequisites for successful scientific work in the field of research and production, biotechnology and applied related scientific fields. As part of the program, we work with CRISPR technology, which literally changes people's lives. In the laboratory, we are not only investigating tumor processes and looking for effective treatment, but we are also developing nanomaterials and micromaterials that can replace existing antibiotics.
