Agricultural Technology and Production Management (120 Hours)

Students in this hands-on major gain a science-based overview of agriculture and food systems, with an emphasis on the practical application of technology to agricultural production systems. The program combines students’ inherent creativity and interest in physical and biological sciences, technology, mathematics, business, and related subjects with their desire to develop innovative solutions to a variety of agricultural problems.

Areas of application include precision agricultural operations and services, management of agricultural businesses, production operations, sales, and promotional work in domestic and international agricultural communities. Graduates are prepared to own, operate, and manage their own enterprises or to provide services for private or governmental entities.
