Maximize agriculture efficiencies.
From designing computer programs for irrigation or pest control, to analyzing ways
to improve production, professionals in this field use their technical expertise to help
agriculture businesses operate at peak efficiency.
This program focuses on understanding the design and operation of equipment and
systems in order to maximize their use and management. You will learn how to collect,
analyze and manage data through the study of business, agricultural systems, and
computer technologies, including geographic information systems (GIS).
Much of your education will take place in the computing lab or electric-power lab,
where you could design a wireless information system for a farm or calculate the costs
and efficiencies of different irrigation systems.
