Biological & Agricultural
Managing Systems & Solving Problems Using Technology
The goal of the Biological and Agricultural Technology Management (BATM) is to produce graduates that use technology to solve problems.
With the world population projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, graduates from technology management majors like BATM will be key components in helping to provide citizens with healthy food, clean water, affordable energy, and a healthy environment. They will be managing the complex technologies used in agricultural and biological production and manufacturing systems. BATM graduates are practical problem solvers because of their hands-on training and their broad background in science, technology, and management. Graduates also acquire skills that are transferable to sectors that rely heavily on technology like automotive and manufacturing industries.
What you’ll Study
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.
