1 Agriscience, Unit 7a: Investigate careers related to the field of agricultural engineering 681011

2 Agricultural Mechanics Is defined as the selection, operation, maintenance of power units, machinery, and structures used in agriculture

3 Technical Education Education varies with the type of agriscience or agricultural mechanics career that a individual chooses, to the include the working conditions

4 Production Support Agricultural mechanics careers in the production support industry for agriculture may include: * Tractor mechanics * farm machinery assemblers * garden tractor mechanics * machinery assemblers, and * agricultural safety engineers

5 Horticulture Industry Agricultural mechanics careers in the horticulture industry of agriculture may include: * irrigation engineers, * lawn mower mechanics, * garden tractor repairman, and * agricultural equipment designers

6 Agricultural processing May include: Electricians: design and wire electrical circuits for agricultural equipment or structures Surveyors: Surveys property lines using engineering equipment (levels, tripods) to survey, layoff terraces or structure sites for construction Heavy equipment operators: Use earth moving machinery or equipment to control erosion on the farm Diesel mechanics: are in a big demand because they are needed to work on diesel powered equipment Builders: are needed to construct or build structures and equipment

7 Soil Conservationist Is responsible for and overseeing the construction of soil conservation projects that control wind and water erosion problems on farms. Soil conservationists use agricultural mechanics skills to perform their jobs

8 Machinist Fabricates new parts for farm machinery and equipment

9 Agricultural Plumber Install or repair water lines in agricultural buildings

10 Soil Engineer Designs and supervised field, turf, landscape, and golf course irrigation system projects

11 Agricultural Electrician Wires farm buildings and performs electrical work

12 Diesel Mechanics Work on diesel farm machinery and equipment Are in demand because of the large amount or number of powered diesel machinery and equipment used in agriculture
