The future of agriculture

Do you love to solve problems? Do you enjoy learning how to use technology? Do you like to build things or take things apart to learn how they work? The agricultural engineering technology concentration looks at the mechanical side of agriculture, from heavy equipment to structures and environments.

Career-focused curriculum

Students who choose this concentration will graduate prepared for a career in the management, design, fabrication and sales of a variety of agricultural systems.

You’ll graduate with a Bachelor of Science in agriculture, and you’ll be prepared for a wide variety of technology and engineering related careers. Visit our Career Opportunities page to learn more!

Transformative, hands-on learning experiences

At SFA, we think that some of the most valuable learning experiences take place outside of the classroom. As an agriculture student, you’ll have the opportunity to complete exciting internships, work on challenging research projects and give back through community outreach and service projects.
