There are a number of Colleges of Further and Higher Education in the UK offering learning programmes for landbased engineering and technology, mechanisation and service engineering for the agricultural and allied landbased sector.
Many Universities offer learning programmes in engineering, agriculture and environmental subjects and a number in Landbased Engineering or Agriculture Engineering. These include:
- Cranfield University
- Harper Adams University
- Newcastle University
- Royal Agricultural University
- Institute of Technology – Tralee, Republic of Ireland
Keep an eye out for programmes which link Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. In addition an increasing number of universities will be introducing new programmes and modules linked to mechanisation, agricultural engineering and landbased technology subjects. Another key word you might consider is Agri-food or Agri-tech.
Many learning programmes will give access to accreditation from the Engineering Council at CEng, IEng and EngTech registration. This is administered by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE). IAgrE currently accredits graduate and/or postgraduate landbased engineering and technology programmes at the following establishments:
