Degree in Food and Agriculture Engineering and the Rural Environment
The Degree in Food and Agriculture Engineering and the Rural Environment leads to certification to work as a Technical Agricultural Engineer. The degree is structured into two majors at the UIB: Horticulture and Landscaping (major 1) and Mechanisation and Rural Construction (major 2).
The programme aims are set out in Order CIN/323/2009, of 9th February (BOE no. 43, of 19th February 2009, since this profession is regulated by law. These aims include knowledge of all the necessary basic and applied topics to work as a professional engineering, drafting food and agriculture, and gardening landscaping projects, supervising work on these projects and the ability to manage and run businesses in the sector.
The main skills and abilities that students must acquire, and in line with the aforementioned regulations, include: cross-cutting skills (English, analysis, synthesis, organisation and management), core skills (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, business), common skills to food and agriculture (animal and plant production technologies, topography, hydraulics, mechanisation) and specific skills for each major (horticultural production technology, crops, plagues and diseases, gardening and landscaping for major 1; construction, hydraulic and energy facilities, mechanisation and industrial automation for major 2.
|Core Training||Compulsory||Elective||External Work Placement||Final Degree Project||Total|
* Elective subjects on the degree total 108 credits and comprise 30 elective credits from each major and 78 specific technology credits from each major (major 1: Horticulture and Landscaping; major 2: Mechanisation and Rural Constructions)
** The external work placement is included as an elective on a major
This degree has two majors:
- Horticulture and Landscaping
- Mechanisation and Rural Constructions
The elective subjects shown for the third and fourth year on each of the degree major need to be taken for each, plus five elective subjects from the block corresponding to the specialisation that students wish to obtain (we recommend three in the third year and two in the fourth).
