Master of Science in Agricultural Innovation(Advanced option available)

Study Agricultural Innovation at ANU

Globally agriculture will need to feed over nine billion people by 2050. With a changing climate and increasing competition for land, water and energy resources, the agricultural sector will need to find innovative ways to do more with less.

To achieve this, an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving will be required. This program brings together students with pre existing undergraduate knowledge - environmental, business, computer science, biology, engineering or systems modelling and collectively work together on real world agricultural challenges. By integrating and adapting knowledge from different disciplines, novel solutions to complex problems can be achieved.

What you'll learn

Master of Science in Agricultural Innovation

You will learn from world-leading experts from across ANU, industry and research partners. The hands on learning will include research and technology that cuts across traditional discipline boundaries to address industry challenges. Your cognate discipline is welcomed to the program, for its through this knowledge that you will learn to apply your existing knowledge to the agricultural sector.

Working in multidisciplinary teams on industry projects, graduates will translate research and theory into real-world outcomes, gaining industry relevant skills and a deep understanding of the challenges faced by industry.

Advanced program

The Master of Science (Advanced) in Agricultural Innovation program provides you with the opportunity to extend your practical and coursework experience with the development and implementation of a research project supervised by an academic. This is particularly relevant to those who wish to benefit from the research strengths of ANU and pursue a career in research.
