Farming is a lot more than planting and watering seeds. There's a science that goes into the industry to make farming sustainable, safe, and environmentally friendly. As an agricultural engineer, you can play a vital part in this process and help to feed countless numbers of people.
This program will be very science-heavy. Some areas you may study include physics, thermodynamics, and chemistry. Math and engineering will also be included in your program. All these courses will enable you to later on apply scientific and mathematical approaches to the design, development and determination of operational systems, equipment and machinery for the correct production to distribution of food, feed, and fiber.
Agricultural Engineering majors have plenty of career options within the field. Career choices will typically include jobs that involve applying your skills to conserving natural resources, controlling agricultural production, managing agribusiness, and more.
