Agricultural Engineer

.agricultural production and processing. Agricultural engineering combines the fields of mechanical, civil, electrical and chemical engineering techniques with a knowledge of agricultural and technological needs.

Working conditionsMost engineers work in office buildings, laboratories, or industrial plants. Others may spend time outdoors at construction sites, mines, and oil and gas exploration and production sites, where they monitor or direct operations or solve onsite problems. Some engineers travel extensively to plants or worksites.

Responsibilitys All agricultural engineers are mainly responsible for applying their knowledge of engineering technology to design agricultural structures, machinery, equipment, and processes.

Future demandEmployment of agricultural engineers is expected to increase about as fast as the average for most other engineering occupations from 2012-2022. Increasing demand for agricultural products, continued efforts for more efficient agricultural production, and increasing emphasis on the conservation of resources should result in job opportunities for agricultural engineers. However, most openings will be created by the need to replace agricultural engineers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force.

EducationAgricultural engineers must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably in agricultural engineering or biological engineering. Employers also value practical experience, so cooperative-education engineering programs at universities are valuable as well.
