Students graduating from Mitchell Technical College’s Precision Agriculture Technology program will be able to install, operate, and troubleshoot equipment and machinery while understanding the agronomic impact in the field.
Students collect, analyze, and manage data from multiple sources, including UAVs. From the collected data, students use geographic information systems (GIS) software to create variable rate maps for seeding, spraying, and fertilizer applications. Mitchell Tech also utilizes land labs which allow students to perform planting and harvesting activities to bring the program full circle.
Ultimately, students are taught to convey complex information to assist growers in profitable and sustainable farming.
*Placement data is gathered through graduate surveys, faculty-collected data, and phone surveys started after six months of graduation. In 2019, 17 of the 17 graduates are represented in the data. Employment rate is figured by: (graduates employed)/(responding graduates who are seeking employment).
