The department, With an aim to promote basic and applied researches in crop science, effort has been focused on recruiting faculty members with strong background in modern agriculture and bioscience as well. Improving research facilities are also our major concern. In the aspects of teaching and research, the faculty always grasps the progress of high technology. In the applied field, they try hard to contact, guide and solve the problems of nowadays agriculture.
Department of Agronomy offers undergraduate and graduate programs. The undergraduate program prepares the students for a career in various fields of Crop Science as well as for further study. The undergraduate students can flexibly select their studies in any field by their interests and capabilities. The graduate program, leading to the degrees of master of science (M.S.) and doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.), aims to prepare the students especially for a career in teaching and/or research.
