You will learn about future and present issues in the industry and gain skills in the use of technology in agriculture.
Disciplines like engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology are also important to gain a broad understanding of the primary industries.
Industry experience is integrated into this degree. You’ll be able to experience and analyze real-world scenarios while you are studying.
Most agriculture students secure employment before they graduate.
