Master of Science in Agricultural Innovation
With a Master of Science in Agricultural Innovation you will have the skills required to solve the complex challenges facing the world.
Globally agriculture will need to feed over nine billion people by 2050. With a changing climate and increasing competition for land, water and energy resources, the agricultural sector will need to find innovative ways to do more with less. To achieve this, an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving will be required. By completing courses in environmental management, business, computer science, biology, engineering or systems modelling, you will have the skills to integrate and adapt knowledge from different disciplines to design novel solutions to complex problems.
You will learn from world-leading experts from across ANU, and its industry partners, through initiatives including the Centre for Entrepreneurial Agri-Technology (CEAT), a joint ANU-CSIRO initiative. In partnership with government and industry, CEAT brings together research and technology to address industry challenges, cutting across traditional discipline boundaries.
Working in multidisciplinary teams on industry projects, graduates will translate research and theory into real-world outcomes, gaining industry relevant skills and a deep understanding of the challenges faced by industry.
Our Acton campus is in the heart of Canberra - Australia's capital city - in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). From here it's an easy walk, bike ride or drive to some of Australia's most significant political and cultural institutions including Australian Parliament House. Amongst our modern lecture halls, libraries, laboratories, student residences and administration buildings, you'll find all the conveniences of a small suburb including cafes, bars, supermarkets, child care centres, a newsagency, post office and even a medical centre.

Job Opportunity Potential
Stakeholder engagement with research and industry during the program development phase continually identified the skill shortage of system thinking, team ready and broad knowledge graduates. An aging community within the agricultural research and industries is considered a limitation to advancing the agri system. Graduates would be expected to build careers in state and federal government, as researchers in industry bodies, corporations and research institutions, as innovation technologist across the agricultural sector and in supporting non government organisations globally. Graduates would have the capacity to enter at managerial and strategic thinking level positions and also educate the next generation of leaders in agricultural fields.

Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria
At a minimum, all applicants must meet program-specific academic/non-academic requirements, and English language requirements. Admission to most ANU programs is on a competitive basis. Therefore, meeting all admission requirements does not automatically guarantee entry.
Applicants must present a Bachelor degree or international equivalent
- with a grade point average of at least 5.0/7.0
- with at least 8 courses a cognate discipline with a grade point average of at least 5.0/7.0 in these courses.
The GPA requirement for this program must be met by both the program as a whole, as well as by the 8 courses in a cognate discipline. Where more than 8 cognate courses have been completed by the applicant, ANU will take the best 8 courses when assessing the cognate GPA.
Academic achievement & English language proficiency
The minimum academic requirement for full entry and enrolment is a Bachelor degree or international equivalent with a minimum GPA of 5.0/7.0.
However, applicants will first be ranked on a GPA ('GPA1') that is calculated using all but the last semester (or equivalent) of the Bachelor degree used for admission purposes.
If required, ranking may further be confirmed on the basis of:
• a GPA ('GPA2') calculated on the penultimate and antepenultimate semesters (or equivalent) of the Bachelor degree used for admission purposes; and/or
• demonstrating higher-level English language proficiency.
Prior to enrolment in this ANU program, all students who gain entry will have their Bachelor degree reassessed, to confirm minimum requirements were met.
