Overview

The Agriculture from CQUniversity Australia has an applied focus that will provide you with industry relevant training on a firm scientific basis. A suite of eight core units will provide the strong foundation you will use to acquire understanding of increasingly complex concepts in the context of industry relevant problems. A series of eight discipline units starting in year 2 will help you build your systemic thinking and you will learn about emerging agricultural innovations and current technological advances, culminating in a capstone unit where you reinforce and apply the principles and thinking skills acquired throughout the course to address challenging case studies. Through the professional placement or research project, you will apply the theoretical and practical knowledge gained in your degree to an authentic professional work or research environment. 

Eight extension units offer great choices to creatively combine your agriculture core knowledge with other disciplines to give you an additional edge as a professional.
