The new Institute of Technological Studies (IEK) of the American Farm School offering studies in multiple disciplines in the agri-food sector opens its doors in October 2018.
This new post-secondary program aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to apply current and leading edge technologies and practices in selected specialized disciplines in the agri-food sector while in parallel ensuring they develop a strong environmental sensitivity and an appreciation for the value of sustainable farming practices. The School uses innovative experiential teaching methods leveraging the unique and advanced laboratory facilities, pilot production and educational farm facilities on campus so that students acquire scientific knowledge and specialized technical skills that will ensure their professional success.
The 2-year (4-semester) intensely practical program is certified by the Ministry of Education according to the National Qualifications Framework. IEK graduates may also continue their studies at Perrotis College, entering directly into the 2nd year of the undergraduate program of their choice (Agro-Enviromental Systems Management, International Entrepreneurship or Food Science & Technology).
