Tropical Crop Management and Ecology (TCME) is a two-year M.Sc. programme taught in English. The programme is oriented on study of production and agroecology of tropical and subtropical crops and their traditional and ecologically sustainable cropping systems (e.g. agroforestry) as well as the modern production techniques (e.g. plant biotechnologies) including specific scientific disciplines, such as ethnobotany, chemoecology or fytotaxonomy. The programme consists of the courses addressing major crops' characteristics, cultivation systems and use including aspects of processing and commercialization. A special emphasis is put on the study of agricultural crops and environment relationships within tropical and subtropical agro-ecosystems and methods related to crop cultivation technologies, plant products properties and plant genetic resources conservation. Faculty provides many opportunities to gain hands-on experience and practical skills through its projects around the world. Students are highly encouraged to develop their master's thesis in conjunction with one of these development projects or with a local institution. The studies are terminated by State exam and defence of the Master's thesis. Students graduate with the title „Inženýr“ - Ing. (M.Sc.equivalent).
