Design computer programs to guide decisions about irrigation, pest control and equipment maintenance. Develop a management plan for your agriculture operation. Calculate whether or not a new operation will be profitable. Determine the most effective irrigation systems to meet particular needs. Use sensors and other innovations to monitor moisture levels, soil conditions or plant growth. Learn to use Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS) in precision agriculture.
Our graduates are decision-makers in agribusiness.
Take courses in computer technology, business and agricultural systems. Much of your education will be hands-on. Learn to use state-of-the-art management programs in the computing lab. Discover how to wire connections, switches and motors in the electric power lab.
In your senior year, you will draw on everything you’ve learned when your team tackles a real-world issue. You might design a wireless information system for a farm or calculate the costs and efficiencies of different irrigation systems.
Most of our students complete an internship the summer between their junior and senior year.
