Professional Profile
The Master will provide students with theoretical knowledge in agricultural engineering and relevant competences necessary to design project, testing, and promotion of new products for the market uptake. The programme will enable students to use a wide range of agricultural engineering technics, identify solutions to develop new products and services in the field of agricultural engineering. Graduating students will gain expertise in: designing, eletronics applied to agricultural machinery, acquisition and data analysis, soil mechanics, precision agriculture, robotics and autonomous machinery.
The programme represents an experimental project as defined in the agreement with partner universities (France and Ireland). It provides 15 ECTS to be obtained at each of the three affiliated locations (Italy, France and Ireland) and another 15 CFU between internships and final tests (10 + 5). Students will enroll at one of the three locations and will receive the (single) title issued by the registered office, after having acquired 60 credits, attending the courses of the other locations and completing the course with an internship and a final exam.
