The Indoor Agriculture program is a collaborative approach among multiple departments and academic programs to create the first known higher education interdisciplinary Indoor Agriculture program. Students will learn about processes involved in growing and developing food and/or other plants in an indoor setting - including, but not limited to: space design and construction, facility maintenance, climate control systems, plant biology, and design of different types of indoor agriculture systems (including hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics), chemical and nutritional makeup of different plant types, basic business and accounting practices.
Indoor Agriculture majors must achieve a grade of “C” (2.00) or higher and a GPA of 2.25 in technical concentration courses.
