  2. 2. Agricultural engineering the agricultural engineering or agronomist career is based on scientific criteria, using this knowledge on farming in order to obtain economically satisfying production from the field, and at the same time sustainable for the environment and the community. choosing agricultural engineering involves engaging with nature, discover and study it for maximum benefit conservation criteria. you are ready to be an agricultural engineer after 5 years of theoretical training - practice that allow you to apply your study in the field.
  3. 3. Agricultural engineering As an agronomist, you'll use the latest technological advances to advance environmental issues and activities. From dealing with machinery components and equipment and testing agricultural machinery to ensure it's safe and working properly, to providing leadership on water and environmental concerns, you'll play a vital role in anticipating and solving 22nd century challenge From several studies of soils and crops, agronomist implements techniques to plan, conduct and improve crops by making appropriate use of the factor of production, such as water temperature and light.
  4. 4. Agricultural engineering What does an agronomist do? The Agronomist must know the agricultural problems and rural areas, to comment on it and suggest alternative solutions, promoting regional and national development. Forming an Agronomist enables them to be able to perform various tasks. For one side every Agronomist can plan an agricultural activity through a series of stages:
  5. 5. Agricultural engineering • Set the type of crop, the precise time of planting, the investment required for the culture and technology for agriculture. • Then comes the time of planting and maintenance, that means the permanent control by us, agronomists, both in irrigation, as in solving problems that may arise due to change of weather or pests. • After that, harvest time comes, you have to evaluate when would be the right time to do it. • The post-harvest is the last stage and refers to the storage, transport and marketing.
  6. 6. Agricultural engineering Workplace of an agronomist A professional in this discipline may not always be in the field, an agricultural engineer performs an important job assistance, provides technical assistance to farmers maintaining the resources of each region, can also provide technical advice to companies regarding pesticides, fertilizers and agricultural inputs. An agricultural engineer can work in the public sector as ministries of agriculture, universities, special projects. Or in the private sector as agricultural or agro-industrial enterprises by exploitation of the agriculture, enterprises of commercialization of agricultural products, international organizations and research centers.
  7. 7. Agricultural engineering What is needed to study and be an agronomist Agronomist future must have an inclination to work in the field, have the capacity of analysis and planning, willingness to work in groups and ability to make decisions and opt for practical solutions
  8. 8. Agricultural engineering Where you can study agricultural engineering? There are many universities that have the agricultural engineering career in Argentina and in the world. But now I'm going to focus on the ones that are in Buenos Aires, near where I live and on the subjects the career has in both. • I have chosen two universities, these are:
