The course

Agricultural Engineers are the specialists who help solve global challenges which affect all of us, such as feeding a growing population with increasingly scarce resources while protecting the environment.  

Our Agricultural Engineering students develop machines, technology, systems and environmental solutions to reduce input consumption, increase precision and create sustainable production systems. You will learn in engineering facilities located at the heart of our commercial farm, home to cutting-edge research. You will study alongside farmers, agrifood entrepreneurs and environmental consultants, providing you with a network of contacts who will need your problem-solving expertise. Assessment typically includes live industry projects, creating and exhibiting new products, creative portfolios, and applying specialist engineering tools and techniques.  

You won’t have to wait to put your learning into practice – you will be a member of a team of engineers from day one engaged with real-world scenarios and projects. Supported by an integrated placement year in industry, you will be primed for your future career using personal, technical and professional skills employers have identified with us as critical to your graduate employability in roles such as designing and test the next generation of agricultural machinery and systems e.g. robotic farming, product support engineers, research.
