The College of Agriculture is committed to providing students with the up-to-date learning facilities necessary to prepare for a future in California's farming and agribusiness industry. By partnering with industry and agencies, the College of Agriculture continues to upgrade laboratory and field equipment in order to provide students with hands on experience with current technology. Faculty and student involvement in applied agriculture research has also provided the college with a means of upgrading our instructional facilities.
On campus classrooms and laboratories are used to help ensure students understand the science of agriculture. Many of our classrooms are equipped with broadband network access and electronic presentation equipment. Our laboratory facilities include both dry and wet labs with the equipment necessary to ensure students are able to take an active role in their learning. We also have some laboratory space designed to support individual student research. The college also maintains a computer lab that has recently been updated and contains up-to-date hardware and software. The computer lab is used both for formal instruction and independent study.
The University Farm includes modern barns, shops, greenhouses, and state-of-the-art laboratories. At the University Farm, a full-time staff support faculty in conducting the field laboratory activities that represent an important part of our instructional program. In addition to scheduled labs, the University Farm is used extensively to provide students with highly valued experiential education.
