This subject provides students with the opportunity to apply the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired during their Bachelor of Agriculture degree to problem- based agricultural industry scenarios. Students will develop the capacity to undertake a ‘systems thinking’ approach to problems within the agricultural sector, and bring to their studies the understanding that they have developed throughout their studies of the multifactorial nature of decision making in agricultural settings- the environmental, economic, social and political factors that impact on system analysis and strategic decision making. They will also develop their skills in data management and modelling, team based problem solving, and oral and written communication. Students will work in small groups on weekly case studies and workshop-based activities with colleagues from each of the majors within the degree; working together to solve large scale industry issues across the agricultural sector. This subject provides the capstone learning experience of the Bachelor of Agriculture, with the aim of producing graduates well equipped to gain employment in the agricultural sector.
