Course descriptions

The main objective of this program is to develop the professional competencies needed to operate and manage a modern agricultural enterprise. This is achieved through the development of skills over six academic terms where students study a sequence of courses in soil, plant science, animal science, engineering and management. We also aim to develop the student’s entrepreneurial skills, personal growth and the ability to adapt to a changing world.

The first summer of the program includes a 13-week internship on an agricultural enterprise other than the home farm, or an agricultural business, where the student learns the many skills related to modern commercial agriculture. Students prepare for their Agricultural Internship during both academic semesters of Year 1 through two Stage courses.

During the second summer, students are registered in Enterprise Management 1. During this period, the students will be responsible for data collection to be used in the next two Enterprise Management courses and the Nutrient Management Plan course when they return to the campus for the Fall semester. These internships will enable the students to relate their academic work to the reality of farming and of the agri-food sector.

Finally, courses in English, Français, Humanities, Physical Education, and two complementary subjects taken during the program will entitle the student to receive a Diplôme d'études collégiales (DEC) from the MESRST.
