Farmers, agricultural contractors, sports turf professionals, foresters etc all rely on modern technology to help them with their work. Land-based engineers are
responsible for developing, manufacturing, selling and servicing the machinery and vehicles they use. There are careers for engineering graduates, and for
technicians and other staff with lower-level qualifcations.
Those working in land-based engineering, which is sometimes referred to as agricultural engineering, are involved in the design, manufacture, installation, fault
diagnosis, and repair and servicing of a vast array of machinery from precision sprayers to combine harvesters, they work in drones and robotics and even with lasers.
Landbased engineering is an innovative area and challenges are being solved every day. If you like variety, problem solving and creating something that helps feed the planet then this branch of engineering could be for you.
One of our members, Kit Franklin, currently workign at Harper Adams University sas made this video for Eat Farm Now to explain why he loves being an Agricultural Engineer.
