Agricultural Systems Technology Management

The Agricultural Systems Technology Management (ASTM) program provides students with a solid background for success in agriculture and industry.

In addition to ASTM courses (such as electricity in agriculture, computer applications, mechanized systems management, ect.), ASTM students also complete courses in the agricultural sciences, agricultural business and economics, as well as the humanities, communications, the basic sciences, and mathematics. Thus, ASTM students are well prepared to meet the demands of both the technical workplace and a changing society.

The ASTM program prepares individuals for technical careers in agricultural industries and businesses, production agriculture, and allied organizations.
