Office of the Dean

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

Combining academic excellence with hands-on, tangible experience - this is how the mandate of the Faculty can be summarized.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 AES as a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow gives you access to avant-garde research infrastructure and a network of fascinating scientific initiatives.

Undergraduate academic programs offered by AES range from sustainable agriculture to wildlife biology and dietetics and nutrition. Scientific and engineering skill sets are part of the curriculum, combined with entrepreneurship training, communication workshops and career development fairs. Our instructors 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 - about 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!
