As the population grows, so do our demands on the planet. Managing this resource has never been so important.
Since it was founded in 1901, Harper has been designed to meet this challenge. Set on a 494 hectare farm, we are the leading specialist university tackling the future development of our planet's food production, processing, animal sciences, engineering, land management and sustainable business.
With everything from molecular diagnostics laboratories to food processing facilities at your disposal, you'll be well equipped to experiment.
There are 494 hectares of farm land to work with here, so testing your theory in the field is more than a possibility. It's a reality.
From crop-spraying drones to life-saving technology, we don't just dream up new ideas and innovations here. We build them.
Our research brings together staff and students to tackle the biggest problems that our planet faces today.
With a placement as part of every course, and a £4M Innovation Centre built by Saputo Dairy UK on campus, you won't just learn about industry. You'll be a part of it.
