Institute of Technology
Bishop Burton is part of the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology - a collaboration between employers, college and university level education providers.
The Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology will specialise in delivering higher-level technical skills to improve productivity, reduce skills gaps and support industry growth.
The courses delivered at Bishop Burton’s Institute of Technology provide students with the essential skills to utilise technology and big data to reduce the environmental impact of agriculture.
We offer a range of high-level technical qualifications, focusing on precision farming systems which optimise yield and minimise environmental impact. Precision farming technologies can transform food production techniques whilst reducing emissions, pollution, waste and soil erosion.
£1.7 million has been invested in the Bishop Burton Institute of Technology to develop a brand-new centre with facilities and learning environments that are dedicated to the most forward-looking agricultural technologies. Equipment includes satellite technology that is capable of the remote sensor of field factors such as crop density, yield, disease and pests.
