The "Applied Poultry Science (M.Sc.)" Master's degree program is a part-time educational program that combines application-oriented research and development. The aim is to train and/or qualify urgently needed specialists and managers in the field of poultry management for the future production of high-quality, safe food in combination with animal welfare and environmental protection.
