Turf management students participate in provincial and national industry conferences, establishing valuable networks of industry and alumni contacts that will continue to support their career development long after they graduate.
On campus, students play a role in the management of the sports turf field lab with golf greens, tees, fairways, home lawns, and park-style lawn areas.
Graduates are managing golf courses in all parts of the province.
Many have successful careers with municipal parks departments managing sports fields.
In addition to turf management, the program includes tree care (arboriculture) and a number of turf management graduates are successful arborists.
Students who wish to contribute to environmental and community well-being, engage in creative activities, own and operate their own business, or engage in hands-on work will enjoy horticulture.
Many students enter the Horticulture Technology Diploma to upgrade their skills or facilitate a career change.
Faculty and staff are supportive and sensitive to the issues faced by students who embark on a post-secondary program after a significant period away from formal education.
Individuals with allergies to dust, pollen or plant products, or specific chemicals should be aware of the potential impact of practicing horticulture on their health.
Moderate physical fitness and a healthy back are generally required for a successful career in horticulture.
