The allocation of energy and ensuring adequate food supplies for around 9 billion humans in the year 2030 is a big challenge for global agriculture. The limited availability of agriculturally usable land and resources like water make it essential to sustainably economize these resources so that future generations are able to survive. Successful research in agricultural and nutritional sciences has to study above all the anthropogenic influencing factors that can be changed. These influencing factors include the realization of technical innovations, the effect of changes in consumerism, the impact of political decisions, and the consequences of competition for the different usage of areas on a local, regional, and global level.

These components affect the global climate and food security. For many years, the faculty of agriculture (Landwirtschaftliche Fakultät, LWF) has been working on the scientific background behind sustainable energy provision and food security and supporting its practical implementation based on the unique linkage between agricultural, nutritional, and food sciences and geodesy.

Leading qualifications in science and job skills are equally important educational objectives for the LWF. Graduates have to learn not only theoretical and practical expert knowledge, but also methodical and social competences and the ability of critical and interdisciplinary reasoning. The research-oriented bachelor’s and master’s degrees meet the requirements of the job market.
