The Faculty of Agriculture wants to help increase students’ motivation. For this reason, in 2002 we established an awards system, to honor student accomplishments in terms of learning and presentation. This is the initial attempt on campus of this sort of system.
Students with outstanding academic achievements are honored in our program of awards for learning based on grades. One person from each department receives this honor at the end of the second year, and another student is selected upon graduation, after the fourth year. We are also pleased to honor graduate students who have received a poster design award or an award for their research paper (authors that win first prize) at academic meetings. We also honor noteworthy activities by volunteer groups.
