Master Program of Agrotechnology

The Agrotechnology Master's study program exists to answer the challenges of the agricultural world in the future in developing continuous agricultural technology knowledge and innovation in order to increase production, increase product quality, product economic value, and efficiency of the production process. This can be achieved through the provision of professional, reliable and competent Human Resources in the field of Agricultural Science and Technology, especially in the fields of agronomy, plant biotechnology (agro-biotechnology), soil science, and plant protection, with specialization in tropical plant cultivation technology engineering and alternative food.


A brief History

The Agrotechnology Masters Study Program as a monodisciplinary study program at the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Hasanuddin (Unhas) was first proposed to be formed in DIKTI in 2012 by the Rector of Hasanuddin University (Prof. Idrus Patturusi) and Chair of the 1st Senate Academic Commission (Prof. Dr. HM Noor Jalaluddin , MS.) As a master of agronomy.

On February 17, 2014, the Directorate General of Higher Education of the Ministry of Education and Culture issued a mandate letter number 148 / E.E2 / DT / 2014 regarding the assignment of holding an Agrotechnology master program to Hasanuddin University, followed by a decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia number 310 / E / O / 2014 on 12 August 2014 with permission to administer the Master of Agrotechnology Study Program. So that the acceptance of the first batch of students starts at the beginning of the 2014/2015 Academic Year.
