Agricultural Engineering

Students enrolled in the graduate (MSc and PhD) studies program in the agricultural engineering track
acquire knowledge through the courses they take, application of research methodologies, and evaluation, analysis and presentation of information.
These are dependent on the research subject and its features, and include among others modeling and simulation, measurement and control, image processing, signals, information and decision making.

Agricultural engineering graduate students can choose to specialize in the following areas:

  • Ground, water and irrigation engineering
  • The mechanics of agricultural, biological and environmental systems
  • The quality of open environments
  • Controlled and mechanized agriculture
  • Sensors and control in agricultural, biological and environmental systems
  • Management of agricultural systems and natural resources
  • Biological materials engineering and natural resources
  • Quality assurance of agricultural and biological products
  • Ecological systems
