!!!Universität für Bodenkultur Wien

University of Agricultural Sciences, Vienna, established 1872 as a 
college headed by a rector, at first only with an agricultural 
division, from 1875, after closure of the Forstakademie/Forest Academy 
in Mariabrunn (established 1805, 1813-1867 Higher Institution of 
Forestry, then academy), also with a forestry division. In 1883 a 
3-year course to train experts in cultivation techniques was 
introduced as a third course of studies; in 1945 another course, 
zymotechnology, was established, which took over the agenda of the 
former "Wiener Akademie fuer Brau-Industrie" ("Vienna 
Academy of Brewing Industry", first brewing academy in the world, 
1895-1922). In 1969 the following courses were established: 
agriculture, forestry, cultivation techniques and water management, 
food and fermentation technology (renamed "food and 
biotechnology" in 1984), finally 1991 landscape planning and 
preservation. Given university status in 1975, but structured 
according to subjects rather than faculties. The period of training 
initially lasted 6, from 1905 on 8 and since 1969 at least 10 
semesters; students graduate after passing state examinations and are
