The Master's Degree in Oenology at the Universitat Politècnica de València is aimed at training professionals in wine production and winemaking, technicians and managers of companies in the sector and future researchers and specialists in winemaking technology and innovation.

The master's degree has two orientations. Firstly, a professional orientation, which gives continuity to undergraduate studies related to the food sector, to train specialist technicians in the productive activities characteristic of wine production. And, secondly, an academic orientation, which allows access to doctoral studies, to train in the skills of research activity in the field of viticulture, oenology and wine economics.


In accordance with the two orientations of the master’s degree, its objectives are as follows:

1. To train professionals for the wine sector, responding to the social demand for highly qualified technicians who are capable of directing and managing companies and organisations in the wine sector, which is of great importance in the national and international economy of many countries.

2. To train researchers and academics in the sciences of viticulture, oenology and wine economics, which in recent decades have undergone major advances, making knowledge a strategic resource for the development and sustainability of the sector.


The master's degree is structured in three main thematic blocks: viticulture, oenology and the wine economy. In the field of viticulture, sustainable techniques applied to vine cultivation are analysed; in oenology, the best technological, traditional and innovative winemaking and ageing practices in the wine industry are applied, and in economics, the key factors of the wine business are determined. The teaching methodology combines theoretical and practical dimensions, with 50% of the total credits going to internships.

In addition, the skills acquired in the subjects that make up the academic programme are completed with the experience of internships in wine companies and the completion of the master's thesis. This could be professional, dealing with real problems in a company in the sector, or research-related, associated with research projects in the research centres, departments and institutes involved in the master's degree.

The Master’s Degree in Oenology is taught at the School of Agricultural and Environmental Engineering. This master’s degree lasts approximately one and a half years. In total, it has 72 ECTS, of which 51 ECTS correspond to compulsory subjects, 9 ECTS to optional subjects (specialisation), 6 ECTS to work placements and 6 ECTS to the master's thesis.

It is structured on the basis of the following modules:
- Viticulture (12 ECTS)
- Oenology (30 ECTS)
- Economics (9 ECTS)
- Specialisation (9 ECTS)
- Work placement (6 ECTS)
- Master’s thesis(6 ECTS)
