Our education

HPC-WU plays an important role in the education and training of future executives in the horticultural sector. Graduated horticultural students hold positions in all kind of organizations within this sector (trade organizations, auctions and inspection services), and in commercial companies (seed-growing, breeding, cultivation and supply companies). Other graduates work for government-departments (policy, consultancy), for research institutes (experimental stations and commercial laboratories) or for educational institutions (universities, higher and secondary agricultural education).
