The goal of the Biological and Agricultural Technology Management (BATM or “BATMAN”) is to produce graduates that use technology to solve problems. 

BATM graduates are practical problem solvers because of their hands-on training and their broad background in science, technology and management. 

With world population projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, graduates from technology management majors such as BATM will manage the complex technologies in agricultural and biological production and manufacturing systems that will provide the needed healthy food, clean water and affordable energy in a healthy environment for citizens.
