The agricultural industry today is all about science: logistics, engineering, robotics and genetics. Modern farming is a cutting-edge, high-tech industry, geared towards creating a sustainable future. At the University of Melbourne, our agricultural scientists work in labs, on-farm, and with drones and new technology. We even have our own robotic dairy.

You could use your biology and chemistry knowledge to develop food and fibre products that will be sustainable in our changing environment, or put your mathematics and statistics skills to use in managing livestock and grazing patterns that mitigate the effects of climate change.

Within the major, you can choose to focus on animal production, agricultural science or crop science.

This major is offered in the Bachelor of Science. This field can also be studied in the Bachelor of Agriculture.
