Viticultura e Enologia


The Higher Professional Technical Course in Viticulture and Oenology comprises four semesters and is structured in accordance with the rules established by the legislation in force and with the guidelines issued by the Coordinating Council of Higher Polytechnic Institutes. This course is organized in order to enable Senior Technicians to perform functions in the areas of Viticulture, Oenology and in areas related to the wine sector. To this end, there are a set of curricular units for basic training, as well as a strong technical component and training in a work context based on the various areas of Viticulture and Oenology. With this plan, it is intended, therefore, to respond to the challenges of modernization, innovation and professional training that currently arise within the scope of the emerging dynamics of the wine sector.
