Agricultural technology, and crop science in general, includes traditional cross-breeding techniques, trait selection, and genetic engineering in some cases. Biotech crops can make farming more profitable by increasing crop quality and may in some cases increase crop yields. According to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), biotechnology crops as a percentage of total crop plantings in the USA were about 88 percent for corn, 94 percent for cotton, and 93 percent for soybeans. Herbicide-tolerant crops are particularly compatible with commercial agriculture systems that help preserve topsoil from erosion.

USDA researchers seek to solve major agricultural problems and to better understand the basic plant biology relating to agricultural technology. This includes introducing new or improved traits in plants, animals, and microorganisms and creating new biotechnology-based products such as more effective diagnostic tests, improved farm animal vaccines, and better antibiotics. The USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) conducts research on the economic aspects of the use of genetically engineered plants, including the rate of adoption of agricultural technology by farmers.

Urban Planning Programs

Urban planning covers everything from ensuring water-supply networks, to designing municipal solid-waste management and disposal. In the case of underground utility networks, it also includes maintaining conduits and access of electrical and telecommunications cables. Municipal engineers may also design civil projects including large buildings, industrial plants, or treatment facilities. Transportation engineering focuses on the construction and maintainence of streets, highways, and mass transit systems. Urban planners averaged $80,500 annually in 2015, much higher than in many other occupations.

Surveyors may be called in to lay out the routes of railways, roads, and canals before construction begins. New advances in Global Positioning Systems (GPS) allow high-precision surveys down to the square foot, a greater resolution than was previously available. Although surveying is a distinct profession with separate qualifications and licensing arrangements, civil engineers must be trained in the basics of mapping, as well as geographic information system (GIS).

Engineering Job Listings

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.
