The English Master‘s program Agrobiotechnology is offered by the faculty 09 Agricultural Sciences, Nutritional Sciences, and Environmental Management. Biotechnology has produced a new and leading technology that is helping determine the direction of global economic developments and international competitiveness. There has been rapid progress in the sector of biotechnology, caused mainly by the results of genome research and, more recently, by rapid developments in cell biology (cell factories) and technological progresses. It can be assumed that growth in these areas is predicted to accelerate further. It is crucial for our future that the energies resulting from the knowledge explosion taking place in these fundamental domains be harnessed to the development of technologies useful to society at large. Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU) offers an international Master's degree program in Agrobiotechnology to cope with the burgeoning worldwide importance of biotechnology, not least in university education, for plant and animal production, and as well as nutritional sciences. JLU was the first German university to take up the global challenge of inaugurating an internationally oriented degree course designed to provide the highest level of academic training for entry into the biotechnology and agriculture sector of the world economy. The overall objective of Giessen's Master's program in Agrobiotechnology is to equip scientists in both the traditional "pure" disciplines and in the domains of agriculture and nutrition for coping with managerial tasks at the cutting edge of the agricultural and food sector. One important educational goal is to teach students practical methods and expertise on a broad scientific basis. Of critical importance in fulfilling this aim are the following factors: research-oriented study the solving of problems in current farming practice the acquisition of international expertise and the fostering of creativity and a willingness to innovate alertness to the need for identifying and assessing the effects of technological processes.
