Master Degrees (Coursework) prepare students to apply advanced knowledge for professional practice, scholarship and further learning corresponding to AQF level 9 qualifications.This master program will allow candidates to acquire knowledge and skills for agricultural systems and food security. Candidates will study farming systems and ensuring a secure food supply in Australia and globally. These systems have relevance to mediterranean environments around the world, and to areas where agricultural production is determined by rainfall during the cooler part of the year. The program will cover science and technology for crop, pasture, livestock and food production (including the roles of genetics and management in achieving sustainable production against environmental constraints), and their integration into viable farming systems. Special emphasis is placed on emerging technologies for precise management of crops and livestock, and the role of these technologies in ensuring sustainable and environmentally sound production systems into the future. A research project in an area relevant to agricultural systems or food security is an important component of the program.
