1- About Our Department

In the Department of Horticulture, our students take theoretical courses for seven semesters and workplace practice for one semester, in accordance with the 7 + 1 system. Horticulture Department; It conducts education and research activities in the main disciplines of fruit growing and breeding, vegetable growing and breeding, vineyard cultivation and ornamental plant cultivation. Theoretical and applied training and research are carried out on the cultivation techniques, reproduction (seedling, sapling, seed), breeding, harvesting and storage techniques, plant physiology, plant biology, post-harvest physiological issues of economically grown fruit and vegetable species and varieties in the region.


2- Why Should It Be Preferred?

Horticulture is becoming increasingly important both in the world and in our country. Our province of Sakarya, located in the Marmara Region, has an important potential in terms of its extremely suitable Horticultural production areas. Climatic conditions and strategic geographical location make the region advantageous in terms of fruit growing, viticulture, vegetable growing and ornamental plant production. It has become a necessity to implement modern production methods in the region, to create new production areas or to improve existing production areas, and to solve the problems faced by the producers with scientific methods. To conduct scientific research in the field of Horticulture, to carry out educational activities on these issues, to increase the variety of products especially suitable for the conditions of the region we are in, to inform the growers of the region, to organize courses, seminars, congresses, to work in cooperation with the public and private sector to provide scientific and practical solutions to potential problems. it is necessary to produce. The academic knowledge, new agricultural techniques and research habits in the field of horticultural crops and the scientific studies in this field will bring the scientific studies to a universal level and will contribute to the development of our country by creating staff that will contribute to the development of our country, fruit, vegetable, vineyard and ornamental plants growing and breeding. It is necessary to train enlightened and honest engineers equipped with engineering knowledge until the consumption stage of the products, and at the same time to create academic staff that will compete with universities in the world.


3- Goal

The main purpose of our department is; To train Agricultural Engineers who always take our national priorities into account, who can make decisions based on data, who have gained scientific and impartial thinking, problem solving and design skills, who are dynamic and progressive, who have environmental and social awareness, who can think analytically, and who are fully equipped in the field of Horticulture and consequently Horticulture of our country. to contribute to the development of the branch of production; To conduct research on horticultural crop cultivation, breeding and post-harvest physiology in line with our national priorities and technological advances, and to ensure that these researches are presented and published on national or international platforms. In accordance with this purpose, by evaluating the potentials of students at the highest level with various courses and applications in Horticulture in Undergraduate and Postgraduate education, providing their education in the field of Horticulture, bringing and introducing new techniques and applications to the region, working in cooperation with the producer, public and private sector to solve potential problems. and producing practical solutions.


4- Target

Based on our national priorities, providing education and training at a visual and auditory level in the fields of horticultural crop cultivation, breeding and post-harvest physiology, conducting research based on cooperation with university-industry-private and legal organizations, and developing all these studies with international relations.


5- Education Opportunities

Our Faculty of Agriculture has sufficient opportunities in terms of technological infrastructure and academic staff. While our department provides education at the undergraduate level as the Department of Horticulture, it also provides education at the graduate level as the Department of Horticulture.
