Agriculture has been at the center since the beginning of human civilization and it remains at the heart of many of the most pressing issues for modern societies.
Agriculture intersects with poverty, famine, development economics, genetic modification, environmental sustainability, disease epidemics, and agricultural graduates are involved in research and development work in all these fields.
A highly interdisciplinary subject, agriculture requires students to have a good grasp of both natural sciences and social sciences, drawing on areas such as biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, economics and business and management.
The range and combination of topics taught will focus on preparing students for work at an international level covering topics such as bio-based economies, sustainability on a global scale, and global food systems as well as within a specific country or region level which focus on crop farming, animal care, sustainable practices, or large property management.
Forestry is broadly defined as the science and practice of developing, managing or cultivating trees and forests for human benefit. Forestry study provides focused lenses through which to understand, influence and practice sustainable resource management and utilization, as well as sustainable development. Unlike environmental science, it is a profession and craft as well as a field of study. A degree in Forestry will give you entrance into careers where you can have a profound impact on the sustainability of human social and economic systems.
Animal husbandry is the management and care of farm animals by humans, in which genetic qualities and behavior, considered to be advantageous to humans, are further developed. The term can refer to the practice of selectively breeding and raising livestock to promote desirable traits in animals for utility, sport, pleasure, or research.
Good Husbandry Practices (GHP) are a set of rigorous standards whose purpose is to ensure the health of the animals for the production and procurement of products for human consumption. These practices optimize efficiency in production levels, with high social content that respects the environment and the conditions of individuals who develop tasks related to the agricultural sector.
Malaysia’s National Agriculture Policy (version 3) set specific targets for fisheries production: coastal areas 900,000 t, off-shore fisheries 450,000 t and aquaculture 600,000 t. This represents a 10% increase from capture fisheries but more than 250% for aquaculture. This need allows Malaysia to be empowered and developed for a wide range of fishing activities and the utilization of aquatic biological resources. Nevertheless, in spite of fisheries resources is included in the recoverable resources (renewable resources), but in the exploration, exploitation, conservation, and rehabilitation must be done properly and based on management principles that can be used optimally, sustainable, sustainability and welfare. Therefore, fishery studies are committed to play an active role and participate in generating human resources professional, strong, superior and unscrupulous in the management of fishery resources and marine.
