The Department of Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science offers theory programs prompting Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, just as course-based projects prompting Master of Agriculture, Master of Engineering and Master of Science certificates. Departmental alumni program rules exist and are summed up in the Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science Program Handbook.
The Department has dynamic exploration programs in the accompanying zones of specialization:
Research on essential creature science and animals the executives with applications in the fields of creature physiology and digestion, immunology, microbiology, multiplication, creature lodging, wellbeing and government assistance, just as genomics, bioinformatics and proteomics.
Studies in plant science, applied biology and agronomy inside cereal, oilseed, scrounge and strength crop creation, joining plant natural chemistry and proteomics, biotechnology, plant rearing and genomics, coordinated bug the executives, just as plant and field crop physiology.
Food Science and Technology:
Food research including science, microbiology, physical science, preparing and tangible science with territories of greatness in oat usage, dairy science, food handling, practical food sources and nutraceuticals, lipid use, and pre-and probiotics.
Nourishment and Metabolism:
Clinical, people group, metabolic and general wellbeing sustenance, as they identify with sustenance strategy, baby and youngster wellbeing, and to persistent sicknesses like diabetes, weight, and malignant growth. Creature based projects incorporate domesticated animals’ nourishment, feed assessment and handling.
Bioresource and Food Engineering:
Engineering applications identified with bioresource usage including food handling, bioproducts, bioenergy, biorefining, and agri-squander the executives.
Rangeland and Wildlife Resources:
Examination of rangeland environments, underscoring applications in domesticated animals or natural life efficiency, applied plant biology, and rangeland or untamed life assets the executives.
Application of substance, warm, mechanical and natural cycles for the change of farming and ranger service feedstocks into bio-based materials, biofuels, stage synthetic compounds, and other worth added items of modern significance. Exploration is multidisciplinary in nature, and incorporates science, enzymology, designing, materials science, and different zones of specialization.
The Department research offices at the Edmonton Research Station include: Crops and Land Resources, Dairy Research and Technology Center, Composting and Feedmill FacilitiesSwine, Alberta Poultry Research Center, Research and Technology Center, the Laird McElroy Metabolism and Environmental Research Center and Agri-Food Discovery Place. Extra Research Stations an hour drive from grounds incorporate the Ministik Wildlife Field Station and the Kinsella Research Ranch utilized for broad hamburger dairy cattle research.
On the North grounds the Department is home to lab space and gear including nurseries, plant development offices, a Human Nutrition Research Unit, an Agri-Food Materials Science Lab, an Agriculture Genomics and Proteomics lab, a Food Microbiology lab, and broad tactile and buyer science offices.
For a MAg or a course-based MSc degree, the Department’s base confirmation necessities are a college degree with an affirmation GPA of in any event 3.0 on the 4-point scale from the University of Alberta, or a comparable capability and remaining from a perceived foundation.
For a postulation based MSc degree, the Department’s base affirmation prerequisites are a college degree with a confirmation GPA of in any event 3.3 on the 4-point scale from the University of Alberta, or an identical capability and remaining from a perceived organization.
For the PhD program, the Department’s base confirmation necessities are a Master’s certificate with an affirmation GPA of in any event 3.3 on the 4-point scale from the University of Alberta, or a comparable capability and remaining from a perceived organization. Outstanding understudies might be conceded straightforwardly from a four-year college education.
The affirmation GPA will be determined on the last ★60 of reviewed coursework finished, or on what could be compared to the most recent two years of full-time evaluated coursework.
Where material, candidates should meet the base English Language Requirement.
Candidates for both course-based and proposal based projects are needed to have an employee consent to manage their program before applying to their program. See Admission Process on the Department site for additional data.
All candidates are likewise needed to submit
- a Curriculum Vitae,
- a Research Statement Form (accessible in the application gateway),
- names and contact data of three references.
Application cutoff times for all projects in Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science are as per the following:
May 15 for Fall term (September) – all projects
July 31 for Winter term (January) – proposition based projects as it were
December 1 for Spring term (May) – proposition based projects as it were
Walk 15 for Summer Term (July) – proposal based projects as it were
A predetermined number of assistantships in educating and examination are accessible to exceptionally qualified competitors. Most understudies are either on grant or subsidized by research awards got by teachers in the Department.
For additional data on the alumni programs and monetary help, planned understudies should guide their requests to the Department Graduate Student Support Office.
