Agricultural Engineering

As the world’s population continues to increase, we will need to double food production by 2050 to meet global demands, while protecting our fragile resources for the 'Dining Boom' (National Geographic, 2017).

  • Be part of the solution by studying Agricultural Engineering at USQ and study topics such as the design of intelligent irrigation systems to maximise crop yield whilst saving valuable water resources or the use of precision agriculture to increase the effectiveness and accuracy of fertiliser and herbicide application.
  • USQ is home to the world-class research centre - Centre for Agricultural Engineering.
  • USQ’s programs are fully accredited by Engineers Australia, and are recognised worldwide.

Career opportunities

With a shortage of skills in the agricultural industry, an agricultural degree will make you an indispensable employee in many major corporations. Secure a position as an Engineering Technologist, Agricultural Engineer, Technical Officer or Sales and Support Consultant and work in a challenging, but influential area of the engineering world.
