Brava students can have access to the Agroforestry Engineering course

Taking into account the progressive reduction of the technical capacity of the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment (MAA) in terms of human resources, motivated, among other aspects, by the progressive reform of existing staff and the failure to replace them at the desired pace, the MAA has been working with UNI-CV in setting up and financing an Agroforestry Engineering course that will last 4 years and should begin in the second semester of this academic year 2023/2024 (March).
