The Agricultural Engineering Technology (AENT) program prepares students with basic knowledge and practices of engineering, technology, and management for careers in food and agricultural industries. Students should be able to develop skills to integrate technical knowledge, computer applications, business management, and communication abilities. Job opportunities include: manufacturing and processing operation management, technical sales and services, materials handling, quality assurance, materials and product testing, production agriculture and alternative energy. The AENT curriculum permits the student to select five elective courses for their minor in areas such as computer instrumentation, business management, pre-medical/dental, environmental soil sciences, and food engineering. The curriculum also prepares students for graduate study in agricultural system management. Agricultural Engineering courses are designated as AENT.
