Overview

If you major in Agricultural Technology Management, you'll study agricultural and biological sciences, and learn how to manage the production and processing of food and agricultural products. Agricultural Technology Management courses are mostly practical in nature. You'll spend a large chunk of your time applying physical science concepts to problems in agricultural systems and food production. You'll also spend a good deal of time studying math, chemistry, business, agricultural economics, and computer science.

Upon graduation, Agricultural Technology Management majors frequently find employment in the technical sales, service, and management side of agribusiness and agricultural production.

HIGH SCHOOl PREPARATION

Agricultural Technology Management involves physical sciences, agriculture, and some math. If you think you might major in Agricultural Technology Management, try to get as many advanced math courses under your belt as possible while you are still in high school. Experience with computers is good, too, and courses in chemistry and biology are essential. Obviously, if your high school offers agriculture courses, you should take them.
