School of Agriculture & Bio-Engineering
Agricultural engineering deals with the relationships between farming methods and the environment in which crops and other biological organisms are grown. These professionals are sometimes referred to as bio-engineers or biological engineers. Agricultural engineers work on agricultural equipment designs, find alternative uses for natural resources and discover solutions for problems between farming systems and crops. They can often find work in the sales, research and production sectors of the agricultural industry.
At Centurion University with our experiential learning approach, we will make sure that you are equipped with the required skills to succeed in this new environment where initiative, innovation and risk-taking are valued.
Agricultural engineering, like all other branches of engineering, uses scientific principles and technology to solve problems relating to sustainable agricultural production.
This covers areas such as:
- The development and management of dairy schemes
- Irrigation and drainage
- Flood control
- Environmental impact assessments
- Interpretation of research
- Structure, machine and power technology
- Food and bio-engineering
- Environmental science
- Soil and water conversation
For a bright career in agricultural engineering, one should have enough logic and practical thinking ability for inventiveness and innovation. The career is interesting, challenging as well as rewarding.
