The Agroequipment and New Technologies course aims to train agricultural engineers capable of integrating agroequipment as an element of sustainable production systems.

In two years, the students of this course will :

  • acquire basic skills in mechanics and machine design in order to be able to interact with designers of agricultural machinery and equipment;
  • acquire knowledge of the field in order to be able to dialogue with the users of the machines;
  • acquire knowledge in terms of innovation and improvement of agro-equipment integrated into sustainable animal and plant production systems.

The lessons are based on a research project / study of professional situation.  They are based on the Chair of Agro-Machinery and New Technologies.
