Only Ag Engineering Degree in Australia by Distance!
There was an article in the paper last weekend about there being a lack of Agricultural Engineering Graduates, and an Aussie Uni was offering the only degree in Ag Engineering in Australia, even offered by distance. I was tempted of course. But I am struggling with my faith in Industrial Food production. I don't believe the Industrial Food System will survive. What do you think? By survive, I mean, total collapse of our way of life due to global debts, overpopulation, environmental damage, costs of extracting future oil. A short course in small scale permaculture might be a better course to undertake.
Welcome to the PRI Forum.
It depends. What is it that you actually want to do with the knowledge that any course of education should adequately provide you with? For me, it's all about changing the current world order; albeit, incrementally! (see: Principle 9). What ever it is that you decide to study, put the theory into practice, and the world will (hopefully) be a better place.
