Office of the Dean

Welcome to the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (FAES) of McGill University!

Combining academic excellence with hands-on, tangible experience - this is how the mandate of the Faculty can be summarized in a nutshell.

Our researchers are world-class academics who push the limits of knowledge in fields as diverse as crop science, animal welfare, parasitology, food safety and nutrition. Our experts pioneer technologies to produce biofuel, they develop methods to advance precision farming, and they explore how bacteria can survive in Polar Regions. They develop strategies to feed the growing world population while preserving our environment. Joining one of the Departments of the FAES as a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow gives you access to avant-garde research activities and a network of fascinating scientific initiatives.

Undergraduate academic programs offered by the FAES range from ecological agriculture to wildlife biology and dietetics and nutrition. Both scientific and engineering skill sets are part of the curriculum. Our teachers are particularly passionate and care both about your education and your well-being. Your future career is our business!

One of the most highly valued assets is our campus - a little more than a half-hour from the bustling downtown of Montreal, the Macdonald Campus offers a spacious and green environment where the professors know your name and where student life outside the classroom is part of the unique experience.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Macdonald Campus of McGill University!
