Graduates of the master's degree are trained experts with the ability to manage, organise and plan agri-food and environmental activities such as agricultural and livestock production, transformation of foods, design of rural infrastructures, territorial management, etc. in the context of environmentally and economically viable agrarian systems.
They are trained to apply engineering techniques to the problems of agriculture and the agri-industry. They work on increasing the yield of agriculture and livestock by planning irrigation, sowing and harvesting. Likewise, they also design, manufacture and install farming machinery, apply procedures for the industrialisation of agrarian and food products and carry out quality control. They carry out studies aimed at preventing plagues and diseases from affecting plants and animals, design and construct rural infrastructures and agro-industrial buildings and work to improve the gene pool of plants and animals. Furthermore, they undertake environmental studies, financial assessment studies in agri-food companies and public administrations, topographic surveys, evaluations of rural estates and agri-industrial companies. They also have knowledge of alternative energies and biofuels.
Consequently, these graduates can work as professions in companies, cooperatives and farming operations and in teaching, research and the public administration. They occupy management positions in agri-food and supply companies and services related to the farming sector, expert and management positions in quality, manufacturing and development departments, consultancies, project management, energy companies and environmental operations. They also work in research in technological centres and universities and R+D+I departments in private companies.
