Be it off-road equipment, agricultural machinery, food and grain processing, water quality, biofuels production, precision agriculture, or livestock production systems, an ag system technologist works to see how the individual pieces fit into the ?big picture? of sustainability, conservation, and profitability. Students majoring in Agricultural Systems Technology choose between two options: Agricultural and Biosystems Management or Machine Systems. Agricultural Systems Technology (AST) graduates can find rewarding careers in a variety of agricultural and environmental businesses. They focus on managing, using, and troubleshooting technology (instead of engineering design) by applying their knowledge of technology, agriculture, and processing systems. This hands-on curriculum in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences teaches students to manage machines and equipment, biological processes, computers and other technologies to create new and improved agricultural systems for the future.
