Overview

The Agricultural Mechanization and Business curriculum at the Clemson University is based on a foundation of mechanical and power systems with classes in agricultural engineering technology, agricultural and basic sciences, and business management. You’ll take various courses that delve into soil and water conservation practices, drainage and irrigation, as well as other agricultural systems. Courses venture outside of the textbook to provide a real-world knowledge of what practices are common today and what can be expected as these industries continue to evolve.

Learning outcomes

In your first semester as a freshman, you’ll dive right into major-specific classes. Of the three you’ll take, one brings alumni back to campus to talk about their careers and help you understand potential career opportunities. In the Principles of Fabrication class, you’ll be familiarized with basic wood and metal fabrication methods and techniques. Finally, the Agricultural Applications of Technology course provides an overview of useful computer technologies and software for the industry.

Communication is becoming more and more important in today’s society, so to ensure that you are prepared to communicate effectively, your course load will include classes in the humanities, social sciences, English and public speaking.
