Technology & Engineering Overview

Scientific discovery and advancement affect our lives in two different ways—through new policies and regulations that provide broad national direction and through new products and processes that enhance our lives and communities. Technology and engineering translate scientific knowledge into action. At the same time, technological innovations often require further research into materials, devices, and processes. NIFA programs support engineering research and new technology development, as well as academic training and technology transfer. Together, these efforts result in safer, higher-quality foods; more efficient and environmentally sound agricultural practices; and better educated and more economically capable communities.
