Welcome to the University of Padova
and to the Campus of Agripolis
The Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of the University of Padova was established in 1946
At first the Faculty provided for the degree in Agricultural Sciences but later, in 1968, the degree in
Forestry Sciences was added
In recent years the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences has become more and more aware that the use of
agricultural and forestry resources needs higher respect from environmental and human health point
of view. This consciousness has led to new teaching and research activities in the fields of
environment protection, and food quality and safety
At present the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences account for 2,700 students (undergraduate and
graduate), 90 PhD students and 30 researchers with scholarship; 80 professors and 35 researchers,
100 technicians and secretaries
In 1995 the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences moved in Legnaro, just a few miles away from Padova
The Campus includes the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine , the "Lucio Toniolo“ experimental farm, the
Regional Agency for Agriculture ("Veneto Agricoltura"), the Regional Institute for Animal Health and
Hygiene and many agricultural and student associations.
