Agriculture, Biology & Environmental Science
Do you love working with plants, animals and machinery in the great outdoors? Does working on a farm with sheep, horses or crops make you want to grab your working boots and jump on a tractor? What about dairy farming? Consider a career in Agriculture.
Are you an animal lover? Do you love all creatures great and small, from the domestic, to the native and the exotic? Studying animal care at the Tasmanian Polytechnic could see you working in wildlife parks, veterinary clinics or even mainland zoos.
Do you love our natural environment, plant life, animals - and working towards a better and greener future? Do you feel at one with nature and want to have a hand in helping our environment? Then a career in Conservation and Land Management could be perfectly suited to you.
Do you have a green thumb? Do you love the feeling of soil in your hands, or planting seeds and watching them grow? A career in Horticulture will have you experiencing the latest techniques in the production of fresh produce, cultivating and designing gardens and working in the outdoors. Sounds good doesn't it!
Would you consider yourself a mad scientist at heart? If you love to conduct experiments and have a keen passion for science then this could be the career path you have been waiting for. Enter the world of manufacturing, food technology, medicine, paper production and school laboratories and see where the experimenting will take you.
Who doesn't love a glass of luxurious red wine to unwind at the end of a stressful day? Imagine if you could create your own range of merlots, cabernet sauvignons or pinots. Perhaps a white is more your style? How about working in a winery, a vineyard or even a cellar and becoming a part of the great Tasmanian wine industry.
