Our Departments

Primary Industries


Our Primary Industries degrees provide an excellent opportunity to delve into a hands on learning environment that engenders innovation, impact and sustainable delivery in our students for future developments in Australian and international primary industries.

Our unique structure promotes valuable interaction amongst students of this Higher Education department via the same core subjects and the added opportunity to tailor their degree specialising in areas including:

  • agriculture and Land Management
  • equine Studies
  • viticulture and Winemaking.

Our Primary Industry programs are based at NMIT's Epping Campus and surrounding training centres, which boast world-class facilities for hands-on learning, including a working aquaculture centre and winery, vineyards, horse stud and farms.

Students have the opportunity to tailor their degree to suit them by choosing from elective subjects that are either specific to their course, specific to Primary Industries or from any of NMIT's other HE programs in Business, Creative Arts (Music, Illustration, Writing and Publishing),Hospitality and Education.

“It is our goal to ensure NMIT graduates are skilled, practical, flexible and solution orientated. NMIT is in a unique position to work with industry specialists to ensure that graduates are prepared to contribute immediately to the Primary Industries community in Australia,” explains Dr Gavin Drew, Head of Department, Higher Education Primary Industries.

“This course structure will provide a learning experience for students that allows the freedom to diversify their skills set in an area of their choice and develop the academic, interpersonal and teamwork skills needed for employment within Primary Industries.”
