Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore

Faculty of Agriculture, food and environmental sciences

The Faculty

Founded in 1953 by Father Agostino Gemelli, first Rector of Università Cattolica, it currently represents an categorical point of reference, internationally recognized for advances in the field of scientific research, as well as for the quality and innovation of its teaching.

The Faculty is rightly proud of its cutting-edge, dynamic and progressive environment; the majority of the programmes provide hands-on laboratory experience and some degree courses are taught entirely in English.

The University’s Piacenza and Cremona Campus is immersed in the so-called 'Food Valley' of Italy, the ideal setting for studying in-depth all the facets and phases of the agri-food system in a supply chain perspective defined as 'from farm to fork'.
