Что я буду изучать?

Pest problems offer opportunities for research on the biological processes involving organisms that cause damage to crops and structures or threaten human health. The master of pest management (MPM) program at SFU allows students to access these opportunities in the management and research of pests and furthermore, directly apply this knowledge. This research-based master of pest management (MPM) program is distinct from an MSc program because of its strongly applied context and its interaction with practitioners and producers.

BISC 601 - Agriculture, Horticulture and Urban Pest Management (2)
