The Master of Science degree requires you to complete advanced course work and to become skilled in research methodology. You’ll be expected to plan, conduct and analyze a comprehensive research project, and to report the findings in a thesis, a scholarly document of research conducted in accordance with accepted scientific methodology.

About

The department houses two Master of Science programs. One of which is Agricultural Systems Management, while the other is in Biological and Agricultural Engineering.

The Master of Agriculture is a non-engineering degree program, primarily for students with a baccalaureate in Agricultural Systems Management, Mechanized Agriculture or a similar degree. All of the other advanced degrees are engineering degrees. An undergraduate engineering degree or its equivalent is a prerequisite for an advanced engineering degree.

If you don’t have an undergraduate engineering degree, but you have to have a strong academic background in mathematics or science, you may still be admitted to a graduate program in engineering.

The prerequisite course work required for the successful completion of the Engineering-in-Training exam, identifies by your advisor and approved by the department head, will be taken at the same time as the graduate courses. Otherwise, a second baccalaureate in agricultural engineering is recommended. F
