Who We Are
The School of Agriculture, Food & Wine provides a world-class concentration of scientific research, education and infrastructure at the Waite Campus of the University of Adelaide.
The School is committed to connecting scientific excellence with industry relevance, this philosophy guides and inspires our teaching and education programs. The extensive international network of academic and commercial collaborators provides a stimulating and unique environment for student training.
By being exposed to the latest technologies and learning from leaders in their respective research fields, our graduates are able to enter the workforce with confidence and awareness of the latest research developments and are able to “see the big picture”. This explains why more than 95% of our graduates are employed within 12 months of graduation!
The School is the largest within the University of Adelaide comprising more than 50 academic and research staff, and several hundred students enrolled across our programs.
A particular strength of the school is its ability to combine basic and enabling research to deliver new options and opportunities for “added value” food and wine production.
Since its formation in 2003, the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine has responded to new opportunities to apply science and technology to heightened consumer expectations of food quality together with the social and political responsibilities associated with sustainable environmental and economic development.
