About Agricultural Technology
Masters degrees in Agricultural Technology train postgraduates in the understanding and implementation of innovative, computerised or mechanical farming systems. This may include improving the apparatus used in everyday farming, or developing equipment for specific purposes such as Agronomy (soil analysis) or genetic research.
Entry requirements will normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as agriculture or environmental science, or relevant research experience.
Though Agricultural Technology is largely based around engineering, your advanced knowledge of farming, horticulture, and information technology will provide you with a variety of career opportunities.
Such roles may include positions within government bodies and agencies as technical consultants, working on a national or international basis to improve farming modernisation for an ever-growing population.
Other roles may include the management of farming produce for the international market, or becoming involved in the transfer of technologies as an innovation broker.
If you would prefer a career in academia, a Masters in Agricultural Technology is an excellent basis for future PhD research.
