Dutch flowers, vegetables and potatoes are world famous and exported all over the globe. With our vast knowledge of horticulture and agriculture, built over centuries of experience, there is no doubt about it: the Netherlands is the country to be if you want to study horticulture.
In all modesty we can tell you we are the most successful country in horticulture in the world. Studying horticulture in the Netherlands puts you in an excellent position of finding a dream job in the business of horticulture. But despite our success, we dont lean back! On the contrary! We create new crops and develop technical innovations. We work on sustainable production methods, and we trade worldwide.
All subjects discuss current topics. Think of taste and market trends, changing quality requirements, sustainable food production, and food safety. In practical classes you explore the branchs latest developments and work with the most modern equipment available. You experiment with state-of-the-art technologies.
Just one year ago HAS University of Applied Sciences remodeled its 2 hectare university garden where you can find a large collection of plants, flowers, trees, shrubs and other sorts of vegetation. HAS has its own greenhouses (1500 m2) and eight high-tech climate chambers, called the Centre of Growing Concepts.
The Centre for Growing Concepts is a top-of-the-arts research facility where students of HAS can study the latest technology in the field of plant production and (multilayer) cultivation. In the climate cells you can research the various factors that influence plant growth, such as light intensity, light colour, temperature, C02 content and humidity. The climate cells are equipped with the latest LED modules from Philips Lighting.
