(This is a pilot program which may not be eligible for financial aid)

Students successfully completing this program will gain the skills required for entry-level employment in precision agriculture. This would include jobs in the service industry related to agriculture equipment sales and services, crop scouting, fertilizer and chemical application, variable rate irrigation, soils, digital data, and remote sensing. Any other employment utilizing this technology such as NRCS projects, range management and land reclamation would benefit from this degree. This is a rapidly growing and quickly changing area of agriculture with great job potential. This is a stackable program with the Precision Agriculture One-Year Certificate.

Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a ā€œCā€ or better.
