New Zealand’s native ecosystem is facing a host of challenges from invasive pests. There’s an urgent need for experts to help strengthen our biosecurity systems and achieve the goal of predator-free by 2050, using effective but socially acceptable management strategies.
This programme gives you the opportunity to grow your impact in either plant or vertebrate pest management. You’ll gain advanced in-depth knowledge and practical training that focuses on predator eradication and biosecurity. You’ll graduate with a specialist focus, along with a network of potential employers (through the research placement course) gained during your study.
How you’ll grow
As a graduate of Lincoln University’s Master of Pest Management, you’ll be well positioned for a role in the primary production sector, with a government organisation involved with pest control and border safety, or as an agricultural consultant advising on pest control and plant protection.
