68 students have received M.S.
or Ph.D degrees in Soil Science at Oklahoma State University working
primarily in Precision Agriculture. These students have gone on to
excel in University, Private, and Public settings, and their teamwork at
OSU has led to the development of GreenSeeker sensors that are now
commercially sold via NTech Industries (www.ntechindustures.com).
The key to the success achieved at OSU can be attributed to the
unselfish commitment from each of our students to the development of
applied technologies that can be used in both the developed and
developing world. Our students are the central shining fabric of
what we are all about.
Graduate students in our program are required to travel around the world, with the majority of travel tied directly to the extension of improved sensor based nutrient management strategies. To date, 82 of our students have traveled and worked abroad on a short term (2 week) and long term (1 semester) basis. Countries where they have worked include Mexico, Argentina, Zimbabwe, China, India, Uzbekistan, Australia, Canada, and the Philippines. We welcome you to apply to our graduate program which has averaged 10 students per year, working as team members within one of the most productive and dynamic precision agriculture projects in the world.
