Agricultural technology management emphasizes the application and integration of agricultural/biological sciences, agricultural engineered systems, and business to manage human and natural resources in the production and processing of food and agricultural products. It prepares men and women for technical management positions in food and agricultural industries that require an understanding of both technology and management. Agricultural technology management graduates are typically employed in technical sales, service, and management in agricultural production operations, agribusiness and food and feed processing industries, government agencies, and companies.
Courses are designed to apply physical science concepts and problem solving to food and agricultural systems. Supporting courses provide a foundation of mathematics, chemistry, business, and computer and communication skills. Technical electives are available to develop a degree program that meets personal career objectives.
The curriculum is administered by the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering and leads to the bachelor of science degree in agriculture with a major in Agricultural Technology Management.
