Vegetal Biotechnology is considered as one of the most important areas with the greatest potential in productive development, constituting a valuable source of products with a very diverse interest, including the agro-food, pharmacological, ornamental, ecological and environmental use.

The Master’s degree in Vegetal Biotechnology has three mentions: Biodiversity, Vegetal Health, and Functional Genomics.


♣ Master in Vegetal Biotechnology Mention in Biodiversity.

♣ Master in Vegetal Biotechnology Mention in Vegetal Health.

♣ Master in Vegetal Biotechnology Mention in Functional Genomics.

  • Master’s Objective:

Qualify Science researchers in the Vegetal Biotechnology field, with a scientific and humanistic view, together with the National Plan of Good Living’s aim and the production matrix, the students should be able to apply their knowledge for the country’s sustainable development, with the use of Biotechnological tools to improve the productivity and quality of crops and thus constitute a valuable source of diverse products of interest, among this we find agro-food, pharmacological, ornamental, ecological and environmental use, understanding and seeking alternatives to conserve biodiversity.
