Bachelor of Agriculture Technology

Lakeland College

Lakeland College
The Bachelor of Agriculture Technology degree prepares students for the rapid evolution of technology in agriculture and for careers that bridge the gaps between emerging technologies such as precision data systems, machinery learning and artificial intelligence, robotics, bioengineering and agriculture production and management. The program will offer hands-on, real world experience with the latest technology in agricultural equipment, software, hardware, and digital devices. The integration of computer technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) with farm equipment, farm sensors, GPS navigation, and satellite imagery equipment are quickly revolutionizing agricultural production. This expansion of technology is creating the need for college graduates with expertise and technical skills in precision agriculture tools, farm management software, aerial imagery, data analytics and block chain technology as well as agriculture production and management systems.
