As farms become larger and agricultural production systems more efficient they become increasingly mechanised. The industry needs highly skilled graduates who understand how agricultural machines and mechanised systems operate, and how machinery should be effectively managed on farms and within contracting businesses. These courses provide students with a thorough grounding in agriculture and mechanisation. All agriculture students share a common first year, studying the same modules with an emphasis on production agriculture. Thereafter, you will study a range of agricultural and mechanisation modules. The principles of mechanisation are developed in an applied way without the use of high powered mathematics.
