Objective

Based on current scientific knowledge and contemporary teaching process, students will be able to acquire generic and field specific competencies that are needed to achieve sustainable development goals and to work in different fields of agricultural engineering. The objective is to enable students to participate in planning, designing and application of mechanization in different branches of agricultural production, storage of agricultural products and use of renewable energy sources, biomass and biofuels as well as waste management from agriculture. Furthermore, the objective is to enable students to participate in scientific research in the field of agricultural mechanization conducted at higher education institutions and scientific institutes, and for further education at the postgraduate study level. Acquired knowledge provides opportunity for employment in companies associated with production, trade, use and maintenance of agricultural machinery and equipment, agricultural production, consultancy companies, extension service, agricultural and technical institutes and departments as well as jobs in state and local government.
