Curtin is the only WA university to offer a Bachelor of Agribusiness, providing a unique opportunity to understand both science and business as applied to agriculture. To satisfy the growing demand for food worldwide, we need smarter ways of producing food and fibre using sustainable production methods, innovation and responsible entrepreneurship.
In this course you will engage in research-led activities, problem-solving and self-directed experiments using our field trial site and glasshouse facilities. You will work both as an individual and as an integral part of a team to develop your agribusiness risk and farm management skills.
You will be introduced to satellite-based technologies for soil, crop and livestock management systems, and will develop links with industry through engaging with experts in classrooms and workshops, and field trips to research centres and agronomic field sites.
As part of this course you will undertake a work placement to ensure you graduate with the science, technology and business skills you need to thrive in agribusiness. This placement can be with agriculture research, production or business industries both locally and globally.
This course contains practical and work-relevant components that includes weekly hands-on practical exercises, a compulsory work experience requirement in relevant agricultural industries and week-long synthesis field trips in the final year.
