Applied Horticulture/Horticulture Operations, General
This two-year Ontario College Diploma offered over a period of 16 months incorporates key aspects of the evolving horticultural industries including sustainable urban agriculture, green roof and living wall technology, nursery production and management and urban and rural landscape design, installation and maintenance. This program prepares students to challenge sections of or an entire Landscape Industry Certification Designation at the technician level as provided by the Landscape Ontario - Ottawa Chapter, depending on students' interests and competencies.
The continuous delivery program model facilitates hands-on training during the industry's prime production period of spring/summer/fall. Training takes place in the extensive campus gardens, as well as through a paid 12-week cooperative education placement with horticultural industry partners. Experiential learning is further enhanced by student participation in applied research and community projects.
