Agricultural engineering

Agricultural engineers specialize in developing ways to improve our farms and our food supply for the future.

Agricultural engineers are involved in:

  • The design and manufacture of new machinery for harvesting crops
  • The development of irrigation systems for farms in dry regions
  • The planning and design of structures for plants, animals and crops storage
In your community: 

First Nations have farmed the land on Turtle Island for thousands of years, developing reliable and natural means of fertilization and pest control which modern scientists are only beginning to understand.

Do you want to help wheat grow higher, produce larger fruits and vegetables, ensure that livestock remain healthy? Maybe you'd be interested in figuring out ways to bring agriculture to the North. As an agricultural engineer you can use traditional practice and knowledge to help find modern solutions that improve the way food is grown, produced and transported to your family's dinner.
