Course Description

Agricultural Science is an interdisciplinary field that covers all aspects of agriculture and agronomy. Agriculture entails a holistic understanding of techniques as well as efficient and careful resource management for the long-term production of animals and plants for human consumption. Agronomy encompassed research and development that resulted in increased output.

Students will be introduced to modern commercial scale farming, which includes agro-biodiversity, the development of higher yielding plant varieties that are resistant to plant diseases and pests, improved fish and animal husbandry, enhancing downstream agriculture activities, and a better understanding of the agro-ecosystem, which promotes sustainable production.

There are special privileges offered only to Agricultural Science students, for instance, scholarhsip offered by agriculture-based giant corporates, such as Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad, United Malacca Plantation Berhad, IOI Group and Kuok Foundation. The students will have international exposure opportunity in terms of student exchange or internship in renowned agriculture related university (e.g. National Pingtung University of Science and Technology). An agriculture park is available to support students' learning in terms of field work and experiment as well. Furthermore, students studying Agricultural Science at UTAR will have the opportunity to interact with students studying other biological sciences.
