SDSU Offers First-in-the-Nation Bachelor of Science Degree in Precision Agriculture
SDSU is at the forefront with its first-in-the-nation Precision Agriculture bachelor's degree. Precision technology and training are key to increasing farm profitability and will play a major role in ecosystem sustainability. Agriculture is experiencing a fast-paced evolution as technology continues to develop. Precision agriculture has emerged with an array of new and exciting – and increasingly high-tech – tools. The integration of computer technology with farm equipment, farm sensors, GPS navigation, satellite imagery and drone imagery are quickly revolutionizing agricultural production. While this revolutionary evolution is creating new opportunities within the agricultural industry, it is also generating a need for college graduates, pertinent research, and Extension expertise related to precision agriculture.
Part of what will make SDSU's Precision Agriculture program produce the best graduates is the incorporation of research and industry feedback into curriculum development. Students learn core lessons and skills which adapt as industry needs change while research identifies new approaches to complex challenges. The degree is a collaboration between the Department of Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering and the Department of Agronomy, Horticulture & Plant Science.
We are partnering with the Department of Agronomy, Horticulture & Plant Science to offer this game-changing degree.
