The course has been developed for employees in the viticulture and/or oenology sectors of the Wine Industry or people who are establishing or operating their own vineyard and/or winery.
The first year of study introduces students to the science of viticulture and wine, and key aspects of financial management relevant to analysing situations, evaluating alternative actions, implementing actions and exercising control. An integrated approach to viticulture and oenology exposes students to all operations undertaken throughout the yearly cycle on a vineyard and in a winery.
The second year combines advanced studies in viticulture and oenology with a special investigatory subject allowing students to further explore specific areas of interest within the Wine Industry.
The third year allows students to refine their viticulture and wine production skills and knowledge, as well as managing the human resources associated with operating a winegrowing enterprise. For students wishing to pursue a career in grape or wine research, the opportunity exists to undertake a major research project.
