Prior knowledge

Knowledge equivalent to 50 credits agricultural science and 20 credits technology.


On completion of the course, the student is expected to have knowledge of modern manufacturing methodology and additional knowledge of mechanical engineering, mechanics, fluid mechanics and electric technology applied within the agriculture.

On completion of the course the student should be able to:
- describe modern manufacturing methodology, common machine elements and material that is used in farm machinery.
- carry out calculations and basic design with application of fluid mechanics, mechanics and electric technology.
- describe the function of common types of engines and transmissions and show ability to evaluate the efficiency at these at usage in different situations.
- be able to describe at a general level computer communication, measure - and positioning technique for precision farming and guidance of implements.
- show ability to utilise the knowledge about the technical properties of biomaterials to basic technical applications within the agriculture.


The course is based on lectures and studies of literature that is processed through written assignments. The students will also do exercises, laboratory sessions and field trips.

Formats and requirements for examination

Approved examination and presentations of written assignments and attendance at compulsory parts.
  • If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
  • If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
  • If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
