Il corso di laurea, come previsto dalla classe di Scienze e Tecnologie Agrarie e Forestali (classe L-25), ha lo scopo di preparare laureati che abbiano acquisito adeguate conoscenze di base nei principali settori delle scienze agrarie e sappiano utilizzare il metodo scientifico di indagine per la soluzione di problemi applicativi. Essi saranno in grado di svolgere compiti tecnici, gestionali e professionali in attività inerenti il settore agro-zootecnico e le relative tecnologie. Avranno la capacità di inserirsi prontamente negli ambienti di lavoro, in ambito europeo ed extraeuropeo, essendo in grado di utilizzare adeguatamente una lingua straniera ed avendo buone competenze per la comunicazione e la gestione dell'informazione.
L'inserimento del laureato in Scienze e Tecnologie agrarie nel mondo del lavoro è previsto nei seguenti settori: produzioni agrarie e zootecniche, assistenza tecnica, amministrazione pubblica e privata, ricerca e insegnamento.
Rientrano infatti nelle sue competenze:
· la gestione tecnica ed economica delle risorse agrarie e zootecniche;
· la definizione e l'organizzazione dei servizi di assistenza tecnica;
· i progetti di sviluppo rurale integrato;
· il controllo e la salvaguardia del territorio rurale;
· la definizione e la gestione delle strutture aziendali;
· la scelta e la messa a punto degli impianti tecnologici produttivi;
· la verifica e il controllo della sicurezza nelle macchine, negli impianti e nelle strutture;
· la gestione dell'energia e dei sistemi energetici integrati;
· le applicazioni per la salvaguardia ambientale e la sostenibilità dell'agricoltura;
· i sistemi di distribuzione delle produzioni agricole e la loro razionalizzazione;
· il marketing dei prodotti agricoli.

Buona conoscenza delle discipline proprie della scuola secondaria di secondo grado.
The Course of study in Agrarian Sciences and Technologies gives many opportunities for stages abroad mainly through the Erasmus+ programme. About 30 foreign Universities of the EU are involved in this students exchange. Globally every year about 10 students of this course of study make a stage in these universities. The areas of study which can be followed by the students abroad are almost all those included in this course of study. In general, students who make a stage abroad attend local courses or participate in research for the preparation of their thesis.
The learning agreement is outlined in collaboration with the person in charge for the Erasmus of the degree program, as regards both the choice of courses and the organization of the internship at the partner university. Students must obtain the formal approval of the examinations that they intend to carry out at the host university from professors who hold equivalent or similar teachings at the University of Milan before completing the learning agreement. As regards experimental activities abroad, which can constitute part or the entire program of the internship, a letter of agreement from a professor of the partner university is required, along with the formal approval on the objectives, on the program and on the term of the internship by a professor of the degree program, who will also act as supervisor.
The examination scores and the related UFC obtained in the partner universities are almost entirely acknowledged by our university for the curriculum studies.
Other possibilities exist in terms of cultural exchange with non EU universities (in China, Japan, Latin America) not involved in the Erasmus programme.
