The Department of Agricultural Education, Communications and Technology, or AECT, is designed for students to customize their career pathways. The AECT curriculum includes a series of core courses that build a solid foundation in agricultural sciences. Students also have the opportunity to concentrate their studies in education, communications, or technology to best match their professional goals. Graduates from the AECT program find careers in which they use their agricultural knowledge as well as their education, communications, and leadership skills. For example, recent AECT graduates are working as agricultural education teachers, public relations professionals, and agricultural technology service managers.
