Program Overview

What Lincoln University says about their program:
"Lincoln University's Graduate Diploma in Applied Science welcomes students with a highly developed interest in solving problems using science. Human progress has relied heavily on the conversion of science into technology in agriculture, industry, medicine, communications, transport, and now, increasingly and essentially, in the management and conservation of our biosphere and its resources. The Graduate Diploma offers a number of 'notional' specialisations or streams of study: agriculture; plant protection; environmental monitoring; food quality management; ecology for nature conservation; and science and entrepreneurship."
