SRUC gives you the opportunity to develop a complete understanding of Agricultural Technology and how it can be applied.
Throughout the course you will also develop other skills for the workplace, e.g. in IT, data handling, problem-solving and communication. Teaching isn’t confined to the classroom. Case studies, study tours, conferences and visits to relevant development sites, research institutes and commercial companies further demonstrate the implementation and latest applications of the technologies studied.
To further prepare you for employment, you will undertake real case studies involving the development of specific sites. The third year case study involves working as a group to investigate a problem and deliver recommendations to an external client as
both an oral presentation and a written report.
In the fourth year you will undertake a supervised individual research project in a relevant topic of your choice. This allows you to develop skills and specialist knowledge in a particular area of interest, to help prepare you for employment in that field.
Example modules: Robotics, Animatronics and Mechatronics, Mechanisation, Renewable Energy Systems, Computing Practice and Development, Renewables Technology.
