This is an individualised subject that enables students to pursue studies in greater depth of particular aspects of viticulture and/or oenology not otherwise covered in the normal subjects offered within Wine Technology and Viticulture. The objective of the subject is to assist students to acquire specialist skills appropriate to an area of viticulture or oenology; develop greater depth or breadth of knowledge in a particular area of viticulture or oenology; and develop industry contacts in the area of special study.
A study program of an approved area must be developed with a supervisor and approved by the coordinator. The program must demonstrate: availability of expertise within the Faculty or from the Wine Industry to provide guidance to the student; feasibility of the study within the constraints of resources and time; necessity of the study to the student’s overall academic objectives; defined boundaries of the topic and depth of study, industry input necessary to complete the study at the level of academic rigor appropriate to a graduate diploma level.
