Department of Horticultural Sciences was established in 1983 to help Iran's horticultural industries achieve their full potential through research and marketing by educating and training students for careers in farm, industry, government, and academia. Our mission is to train innovative graduates, create knowledge, enhance entrepreneurship and provide community service/outreach through quality teaching and training. Our full time faculty members are teaching and investigating in the different fields of horticulture including pomology, olericulture, and floriculture, biotechnology of fruit crops as well as landscape design and postharvest technology. The department provides relatively well equipped research laboratories, specialized facilities and greenhouses for research and education. Grape vines and other temperate and subtropical fruit collections and olive adaptation orchard are other resources available in this department. Currently the department of horticultural offers diverse and highly rated educational programs in three degrees of BSc, MSc and PhD.
The MSc and PhD graduate programs attract students from different fields such as Ornamental plants, Olericulture and Pomology. The department is actively engaged in four major areas of research including micropropagation of horticultural crops, vegetable production technology, environmental factors affecting plant growth and development, and post-harvest physiology and technology.
