Be on the forefront of advancements in the agricultural industry – from horticultural management and crop production to animal agriculture. Agriculture has evolved from hand hoes and sickles to today’s tools: drones, crop sensors and drought-resistant plants. Students who select the Agricultural Technology Management emphasis of the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Technology Management and Education specialize in one of six areas: controlled environment agriculture, field crop production and management, information systems, horticulture management, turf grass management or animal agriculture. They will develop a strong foundation of technical expertise and field experience, learning how to use technology and modern techniques. Coursework focuses on skill development in areas such as lab and shop safety, applications in agricultural mechanics, operations in urban agricultural mechanization, and irrigation and turf maintenance.
Agriculture is changing, and you can lead the way to innovative solutions to provide for a population that’s projected to grow to more than 9 billion people by 2050. You’ll learn how to use technology and modern production agriculture techniques to enhance food safety and security, while building your management and business skills. If you want to share what you learn with the next generation, you can pursue an agricultural education teacher certification.
