Ag Systems Management
The Agricultural Systems Management option of the Agriculture Business & Management major integrates and applies agricultural engineering technology, agricultural sciences, and agricultural business concepts.
The curriculum prepares graduates for careers in fields such as agricultural machinery and power systems, metal fabrication and welding systems, electrical energy systems, construction systems, soil and water conservation systems, and employee safety and management systems.
Students in the Agricultural Systems Management program have numerous opportunities to prepare themselves for a successful career after graduation. Students can participate in an internship program that allows them to gain experience while still completing their degree at Texas State. Internships allow students the opportunity to apply their education, gain work experience, and network with potential employers. Within the Department of Agriculture, students are encouraged to take part in student organizations and activities. These organizations and activities are an excellent way for students to develop teamwork and leadership skills. As a student is completing their degree, the Texas State Career Services Office and departmental faculty are available for further career assistance and advice during the job search process.
