Bachelor of Science (Hons) (Applied Plant Sciences)
|Program is specifically designed for students interested in areas related to natural products, plant genomics, plant breeding, plant biodiversity, soil science and plant biotechnology. Our main aim is to generate and nurture plant sciences graduates with Islamic values.
|To produce graduates with the following outcomes:
|A plethora of specialised career options are open to
students who graduate with B.Sc (Applied plant science) degree. Applied
plant science provides the background for a number of science- related
careers such as: Plant and soil scientist/ Agronomist/ Farm and
greenhouse manager/ Food scientist/ Biotechnologist/ Conservation
scientist/ Propagation scientist/ Botanist/ Plant Geneticist/
Other jobs where the degree will be useful include: Plant journalist/ Agricultural business/ Environmental engineer or scientist/ Lecturer/ Science teacher
Remember that many employers accept applications from graduates with any degree. Therefore the job opportunities are not just restricted to the job listed here.
Graduates can also pursue a higher education in the form of a Master's degree and PhD in field such as horticulture, entomology, plant pathology, plant genetics, plant biochemistry, plant biotechnology and more. These programs are usually research-based and provide graduates the necessary background to enter into plant science-related research and technical career positions in future
