Subject outline

Knowledge of technology used in global rural enterprises and agriculture technological will be explored with relevant industry examples. (1) Sensing systems which include a background to Global Positioning Systems, Geographical Information Systems, telemetry and drones, with examples of sensing applications such as environment, climate, plant, animal and soil. (2) Modelling technologies will assist in providing productivity estimation. (3) Industry relevant genetic engineering and genomic technologies will be briefly explored and the final topic (4) Emerging technologies, will assist the student in developing skills in technology suitability assessment. An understanding of the interrelationships will be gained between technology, performance, social, ethical, sustainability and production efficiency. This subject addresses La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential. Global Citizenship entails deep appreciation of how we live in an inter connected world, being able to recognise the global context of concepts, act across cultures and boundaries, and work with diverse communities - now and in the future.
