Course summary

SRUC gives you the opportunity to develop a complete understanding of Agricultural Technology and how it can be applied. Throughout the course you will also develop other skills of the workplace. Teaching isn't confined to the classroom. Case studies, study tours, conferences and visit to relevant development sites, research institutes and commercial companies further demonstrate the implementation and latest applications of the technologies studies. To further prepare you for employment, you will undertake real case studies involving the development of specific sites. The third year case study involves working as a group to investigate a problem and deliver recommendations to an external client as both an oral presentation and a written report. In the fourth year you will undertake a supervised individual research project in a relevant topic of your choice.


Example modules include: Robotics; Animatronics and Mechatronics; Mechanisation; Renewable Energy Systems; Computing Practice and Development; Renewable Technology
