Biological and Agricultural Technology Management
Managing Systems and Solving Problems Using Technology.
The graduates of the Biological and Agricultural Technology Management (BATMan or BATM) major at Auburn are practical problem solvers because of the hands-on learning training and their broad background in in science, technology and management. With 70 percent increase in global demand for healthy food, clean water and affordable energy in a healthy environment due to world population that is expected to reach over 9 billion by 2050, BATM graduates will be in high demand to develop, operate, support and spread technologies to support agricultural and biological systems that produce and provide these essentials of life. BATM graduates will also acquire skills that are transferable to other sectors that rely heavily on technology such as automotive and manufacturing industries.
Students will take a variety of courses in technology, science and management that will enable them to be practical problem solvers, and be able to manage and develop solutions to the technological challenges of the increasingly complex agricultural and biological systems of the 21st century. The curriculum is also designed such that students can simultaneously obtain a minor in Agronomy and Soils, Stewardship-based Agriculture, Agribusiness, information Systems Management, Technical and Professional Communication, Poultry Science or Business Analytics.
