An Indonesian state university renowned for its competencies in research and developmentContact Us
UNSRI’s Faculty of Agriculture delivers a comprehensive collection of study programmes that is distinguished by its high-calibre research capabilities which contributes to Indonesia’s agricultural potential. The agriculture sector has been identified as one of the key industries for the country’s economic development given the high percentage of the workforce reliant on this segment. With Indonesia’s rapid population increase, there continues to be pressure to find sustainable solutions to produce high-quality and sufficient food resources. Furthermore, with the food production industry’s impact on the rural population in terms of employment and income, UNSRI’s Faculty of Agriculture students are taught the importance of modern technology that can be applied to advance the agriculture sector and increase its contribution to economic growth.
The Faculty of Agriculture offers a wide-array of degree programmes from undergraduate through to doctorate levels in the fields of Agronomy, Agribusiness, Aquaculture, Agro-technology and Plant Science among many others. Master’s students are also able to choose a double degree programme with UNSRI’s international partners in Japan and Malaysia. The study programmes are designed to produce problem-solving individuals that can improve the productivity in the agriculture sector while promoting sustainability and environmental protection. The faculty also has renowned research capabilities as evident from the obtainment of 12 patents which are led by the faculty’s members; hence illustrating UNSRI’s standing in the field of agricultural science.
With Indonesia’s government targeting self-sustainability in key foodstuff staples within the next five years, Indonesia is looking to effectively optimise its agricultural sector. Furthermore, given Indonesia’s role as a net importer of grains, horticulture and livestock produce, there has been growing emphasis on food security. The research into new methods and technology in plantations and agricultural production at the Faculty of Agriculture is set to contribute to better efficiency and commercial viability of the country’s agriculture industry.
