What will I learn?

Studies begin in the first year with required courses, allowing you to build your knowledge in plant identification and use, as well as landscape construction applications. This wide range of courses allows you to discover and develop your interests.

You’ll take five courses per term, on a wide range of topics, from entomology to horticulture engineering and surveying. 

In second year, you can choose an elective course that will allow you to focus on a subject of particular interest to you, including:

  • wood construction techniques
  • nursery crop production
  • tree fruit crops
  • plant propagation
  • greenhouse crop management
  • computer-aided graphics and projection
  • business courses

You'll also be required to take these workplace readiness certificates, including Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), Emergency First Aid, and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS).
