Object of Study

The object of study is the regional agricultural and agri-food systems. The sound knowledge and deep understanding of such systems acquired by students throughout their career will allow them to achieve greater quality and quantity of agricultural production while taking into account its sustainable and equitable development.

Working opportunities:

Agricultural Engineers may develop their careers not only in agricultural production but also in the agri-food and agribusiness sectors:

  • Farms
  • Farm supplies and services companies (Seed, machinery, agro-chemical companies, etc.)
  • Middlemen and Farmer Cooperatives.
  • Farmers’ associations
  • Professional organizations
  • Agribusiness companies
  • Laboratories
  • Insurance companies, Banks, Real State agencies
  • Research and Development Institutions
  • Ministries, Departments, Town Councils, and other public institutions or agencies
  • Tertiary Schools and Universities
  • Organizations for international cooperation

College Preparation Period
The curriculum meets students’ needs through a preparation period which introduces them into the contents of instrumental subjects and provides general guidance to university studies. During this period, contents from subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Maths are anticipated; it also includes an Introduction to University studies. Although these courses are mandatory, they are not qualifying.

The College is located in the “Villarino” Experimental Field in Zavalla, which is 25 km. away from Rosario. The 507- hectare field is home to the main regional production activities. Our classrooms, laboratories and greenhouses sit a few meters away from the production lots, all of which constitute an ideal didactic scenery for the students.

The curriculum is structured in two cycles:

– Basic Cycle:
It provides the fundamental concepts, basic principles and procedures from Biology and Socioeconomics, and allows undergraduates to get an instrumental background to develop a systematic and critical approach to knowledge.

– Professional Formation Cycle:
It aims at training undergraduates in the skills to manage and administer diverse regional agricultural systems of production while preparing them to carry out advisory services, and extension and research activities.

During your undergraduate courses, you will take part in:

Integration workshops:
These workshops will help students to get a deep insight into the agronomic practice and apply the knowledge gained from all the subjects to specific situations of the agricultural ecosystems where they will work.

Study trips:
For a closer contact with the reality of each region, undergraduates participate in study trips to farms, companies and institutions.

This program allows undergraduates to choose electives based on their academic interests and on the professional profile they want to develop.

Scholarships and internships:
The program of scholarships and internships provides undergraduates with opportunities to get on-the-job training and to get in contact with future employers.
