It's useful to know

The agri-food sector is the leading industrial sector in Catalonia and therefore a keystone in the Catalan economy and our industrial future (see the Polytechnic School and the agri-food sector ). Having healthy, quality foods is vital for society. The agri-food engineer is the person who acts on the design and management of the production of such foodstuff.

Graduates of a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Engineering are engineers, with full capacity in design and project: they are the only professionals in the sector with knowledge of the entire food production process and that do not neglect any of the aspects involved in the production process: processes, infrastructures, facilities, raw materials, economy, energy, environment, quality, etc.

Image of the process Production -> Food industry -> Marketing

We offer two majors in these studies: farm exploitation (specialisation in the primary sector) and agricultural and food industries (specialisation in the secondary sector).

Graph of the two specialisations within the degree

There is a high demand for such graduates: in our region the food industry is extremely strong (in fact, it is the most dominant sector in Catalonia), while agriculture, being the supplier of basic foods, is a strategic sector.

The course maintains strong link with the business world: we are continuously in touch with companies, we organize visits and establish work placements in companies of the sector with the stays in the work environment.

Logos of companies in the sector

And not only this: apart from foods there is other areas of work we also perform: design of sport fields, gardens and landscape gardening, environmental management, energy efficiency, biotechnology...

Finally, these studies have professional attributes recognised by the Spanish State (Law 12/1986); this means that there is work that an engineer will be able to do and other types of professionals in the same field will not. It is an important advantage in the world of work. Obviously, graduates will also be able to perform all activities related to the sector that do not require regulated attributes.

Studies for the Bachelor's degree in Agri-food Engineering, through their exploration of farm exploitation, allow students to attain the qualification allowing them to work as an advisor in Integrated Management of Plagues (GIP) according to Spanish Royal Decree 1311/2012. This Royal Decree establishes the obligation to complete 12 credits in subject areas covering plant protection to obtain this qualification, a requirement that is achievable depending on the optional modules chosen by the student. In the Observations section of each subject outline, the credits valid for this purpose are specified.

These same studies allow students achieve the qualification of manipulator and applicator of biocide products for farming use according to Order AAM/329/2014 of 27 October. This Order establishes that engineers must receive as part of their curriculum the content corresponding to this course, which will then be considered passed. In order to attain this content, students will need to complete the optional subjects relating to animal production.

Careers

You will be an engineer: an engineer dedicates themself to applying scientific knowledge to find solutions to the real technical problems. In our case, we are the engineers of processes involving living beings. Our qualification uses engineering knowledge (such as the construction or design of facilities) applied to food production (plants, animals and their derivatives; in short, biological materials) in a way that respects the environment (sustainability) and with an objective of profitability (economy).

You will be able to:

  • Plan from scratch a food business (moving earth, foundations, structure, facilities and production lines), an agricultural installation (such as an irrigation system or a farm) or a garden or sports field, directing works, conducting technical reports, etc.
  • Be a manager or technician in different areas of the food industry, such as quality control manager, production manager, logistics lead, environmental manager, R+D...
  • Be a manager or technician of agricultural cooperatives or auxiliary companies (fertilisers, seeds, additives, phytosanitary, machinery, etc.).
  • Be a technical advisor of agricultural and farming exploitations, plant defence groups, communities of irrigators, associations and agricultural unions, etc.
  • Be an expert in agricultural appraisals and valuations. 
  • Access the technical body of the public administration (in agricultural, food or environment bodies, among others).
  • Access the technical body of the public administration (in agricultural, food or environment bodies, among others).
  • Be a researcher in public or private centres and bodies (normally after having completed academic training through a master's degree or doctoral degree).
  • Be a business owner (creating your own company).

These studies have a great future ahead: in 2012, Forbes magazine, one of the most reputable US publications on the economy and finance, included the agri-food engineering in the list of the 10 university degrees with the brightest future beyond 10 years. It is predicted that in the next years there will be a reduction in the available world surface for crops, as well as an increase in the price of foods. At the same time, rich countries will ask for healthier and better products. According to Forbes, all this will mean that professionals who know how to respond to these global needs will have job security.

Continue studying

This degree gives you access to the master in Food Biotechnology or to any of the technological and scientific master's degrees. If you want to continue in the field of research, you can access the doctoral programme in Technology.

Practical work experience

This degree places particular emphasis on practical classes. All subjects have practicals assigned of different types depending on the training requirements specific to the subject. The different types of practicals include:

  • PS laboratory and technology plant practicals
  • Practicals in the field (on the PS experimental plot or the Agrifood Campus of Girona)
  • Practicals in the computer room
  • Visits to companies

Laboratory practicals 1 Laboratory practicals 2

Photographs of technical visits to the San Miguel brewery and RCD Espanyol stadium

Even though these types of practicals are very common in the different PS qualifications, those in the field and the technology plant are exclusive to agrifood. Separately, the BAE degree carries out more visits to companies, as above all it aims to foster direct contact between students and the reality of the producing sector of the local area.

With the same philosophy, the BAE encourages students to carry out in-company placements (so-called “stays in the work environment”, SWE) with the aim of applying and complementing the acquired training, allowing students to experience the reality of the profession in which they are working and developing their skills to increase their incorporation into the job market.

Bachelor's thesis

Prior to obtaining the qualification, BAE students have to complete a bachelor's thesis in which they apply, integrate and develop the knowledge, abilities, competences and skills acquired during their studies. This work can be of different types: an engineering project, research, etc.

Mobility

One of the main features of current university education is the importance placed on the international aspect. This is possible thanks to institutional relations established and regulated through agreements and to mobility and exchange programmes, as well as grant programmes and specific existing scholarships supporting this activity (including grants for people with special needs).

At the University of Girona, all these elements are managed from the Office of External Relations (ORE). The ORE is the administrative service of the University that takes care of programmes such as ERASMUS or SICUE that cover an extensive range of options and countries. By extension, it is also the administrative unit responsible for receiving participants on these programmes from other universities. The head of the ORE is also responsible for UdG accommodation, which is an external service despite being part of the reception programme.
