Agriculture Technology

Hands on, high tech learning. At Olds College we see agriculture technology as intervention by design. Technology uses intellectual and practical resources to create technological outcomes, which expand agricultural possibilities by addressing needs and realizing opportunities that have not been seen before. With a focus on design thinking we support our students to be innovative, reflective and critical in designing new models, products, software, systems and tools to benefit agricultural production and business outcomes, while taking account their impact on cultural, ethical, environmental and economic conditions.

As a student in the Agriculture Technology programs, you will have access to the Olds College Smart Farm, a giant lab that gives our ag tech students a competitive advantage, and sets us apart from any other program offered in Canada. The Smart Farm ensures students have access to new and innovative technologies in a real-world ag environment.
