Agricultural engineers develop and install agricultural, horticultural and forestry machinery and processes. They also advise farmers, companies and government departments on countryside issues. These could range from crop diversity through to sustainable land use.Therework usually involve:

  • assessing the environmental impact of intensive production
  • supervising agricultural construction projects, like land drainage, reclamation and irrigation
  • solving engineering problems; for example, making it easier for machinery to move over uneven ground in different weather conditions (known as terramechanics)
  • testing and installing new equipment, such as harvesters, crop sprayers, storage facilities and logging machinery
  • analysing data and using computer modelling to advise farmers and businesses on land use; for instance, how to increase crop yields
  • planning service and repair programmes for machinery.

Depending on the size of the company, you might also be involved in managing and coordinating sales, marketing and technical support.
