At the heart of every exhilarating wine are years of knowledge, experience, and hard work. The key to creating the next bottle of wine will be a true passion for knowing and understanding soil, climate, and local conditions. Offered by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s International School of Agricultural Sciences, the MSc program in Viticulture and Enology is curated to impart this knowledge comprehensively and in-depth, from the vineyard to the bottle.
First of its kind in Israel, this program is intended for wine connoisseurs, newcomers, and those already working in the industry, and for a new generation of skilled wine professionals who desire to take their place among the world’s experts. The master’s program is carried out in nine main areas: biofluids, biomechanics, numerical modeling, biomedical image processing, physiological signal processing, vision, hearing, sensory communication, and computational and systems biology.
The M.Sc. in Viticulture and Enology is a two-year academic program (672 academic hours) leading to a Hebrew University of Jerusalem accredited degree. Classes are held two days per week, over four consecutive semesters. Practical work in vineyards may be carried out during school.
The program comprises scientific theory, practice in grape-growing, wine-making, and wine-tasting, and an internship in leading wine producers in Israel and overseas, which grants a specialization diploma in enology.
Taught entirely in English, the program focuses on thorough training in the fundamental sciences and comprehension of all the different processes related to grape production and winemaking.
Students applying for M.Sc. in Viticulture and Enology need to fill out the university’s application form and submit it to Ms. Mahyan Gon, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next batch of this program will start on March 16, 2023, and the registration deadline for the same is February 15, 2023, though students can apply by September 1, 2022, to receive the early bird registration discounts.
