The new Institute of Technological Studies of the American Farm School opened its doors with high expectations. The American Farm School has been historically associated with vocational education and has been offering a series of vocational training programs such as seminars, one-year programs, training of farmers in new fields, and more.
This new post-secondary program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to apply current and leading edge technologies and practices in selected specialized disciplines in the agro-food sector while in parallel ensuring they develop a strong environmental sensitivity and an appreciation for the value of sustainable farming practices.
The new Institute of Technological Studies 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.
