The Master of Agrotechnology study program is here to answer the challenges of the agricultural world in the future in the continuous development of agricultural science and technology innovation in the context of increasing production, increasing product quality, product economic value, and efficiency of production processes. This can be achieved through the provision of professional, reliable, and competent Human Resources in the field of Agricultural Science and Technology, especially in the fields of agronomy, plant biotechnology (agro-biotechnology), soil science, and plant protection, with specialization in engineering technology for tropical plant cultivation. and alternative foods.
A brief History The Agrotechnology Masters study program as a monodisciplinary study program at the Faculty of Agriculture, Hasanuddin University (Unhas) was first proposed for its formation to DIKTI in 2012 by the Rector of Hasanuddin University (Prof. Idrus Patturusi) and Chair of the Senate Commission 1 for Academic Affairs (Prof. Dr. HM Noor Jalaluddin , MS.) As master of agronomy. On February 17, 2014, the Directorate General of Higher Education, Ministry of Education and Culture issued a mandate letter number 148 / E.E2 / DT / 2014 regarding the assignment of the Agrotechnology master program to Hasanuddin University, which was followed by a decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia number 310 / E / O / 2014 on August 12, 2014 with a permit to hold the Agrotechnology Masters Study Program. So that the admission of the first batch of students begins in the first semester of the 2014/2015 academic year.
Field of Science Studies The monodisciplinary study program Masters in Agrotechnology is a study program that is included in the Applied Sciences Cluster. These fields of science include, among others, Agronomy, Soil Science, and Pests and Plant Diseases. In relation to other fields of science, the development of the field of agro-technology studies is supported by the basic sciences, including Biology, Organic Chemistry, Pharmacy, and Statistics. On the other hand, this monodisciplinary study program supports other applied disciplines, for example Agribusiness, Regional Development Planning, Natural Resource Management, and Conservation.
To become a center for education, research, development, and the application of competent, competitive and professional science-based science and technology in the agro-technology sector while still paying attention to environmental sustainability and cultural values of the Indonesian maritime continent that can solve problems and develop agriculture with an independence-based approach.
- Prepare a Master of Agriculture in the field of Agrotechnology that is reliable, has high scientific motivation, has academic and professional abilities, is broad-minded and has high performance;
- Increasing the standard of living of the community by forming and fostering social institutions in the efficient and effective application of science and technology in the agro-technology sector;
- Providing adequate knowledge and skills of science and technology in the field of Agrotechnology so that outputs not only have the opportunity to fill the available job market but also have the ability to independently and adequately become entrepreneurs, especially in agriculture
The mono-disciplinary study program Master of Agrotechnology prepares human resources who are reliable, broad-minded, critical, ethical, able to analyze and solve agricultural science and technology problems with strategic thinking, and be able to integrate various concepts of science, technology and management to take part in sustainable agricultural development. In managing human resources and increasing the competitiveness of the nation, its management is aligned with competency groups of enthusiasts, namely 1). Actors in agriculture, 2). Managers (planner, designer, organizer, evaluator, mediator), 3). Entrepreneurs (entrepreneur, initiator, adapter, cooperator), 4). Researchers, 5). Educator (facilitator, motivator and mediator).
