Agricultural production includes development and application of precision agriculture concepts and tools, climate risk in agriculture, pesticide application, robotics and other machine systems and environmental control systems. Applications to space agriculture are included in cooperation with NASA at Kennedy Space Center. Biological engineering includes post-harvest operations, bioprocess design, plant biotechnology, process microbiology, food process engineering, environmental biotechnology, bioreactors, and packaging science. Information systems include development and application of GIS and remote sensing, communications, mathematical modeling, environmental decision analysis and expert systems techniques to biological and agricultural systems. Land and water resources includes soil-water-plant relations, irrigation, water quality, watershed hydrology, BMP and TMDL studies, hydrologic modeling, ecological restoration, environmental fate and transport of nanoparticles, waste management, ecological and risk modeling and water reuse. Students also may choose to participate in interdisciplinary concentrations in hydrologic sciences, geographic information sciences, particle science and technology, and interdisciplinary ecology. Master of Science in the agricultural operations management area of specialization provide for scientific training and research in technical agricultural management. Typical plans of study focus on advanced training in environmental systems management, production systems management, construction and process management and technical sales management. This program is focused on Hydrologic Sciences.
