Clubs and organizations

Expand your network

Networking doesn’t stop when you leave the classroom

ESMT’s student clubs are student initiatives that begin with a desire to get directly involved, where theory meets practice. Each club at ESMT was formed by students’ proposals and a desire to create something new and productive for future ESMT students. Students from all three degree programs are welcome to join and take part in initiatives.

ESMT student clubs

  • Agriculture Club

    Mission

    The Agriculture Technology Club's mission is to actively help the innovation of agriculture technology. 
    Compared to any other industry, agriculture today is at the lowest level of digitalization. With current political turmoil, farmers of any size find it difficult to sustainably innovate their farming processes.
    We support this endeavor and save not only time and physical labor, but also create environmentally friendly ways to yield maximum quality and quantities of produce to help feed the growing world population long-term.
     

    Initiatives

    Through our club activities, we can directly experience the advent of agriculture technology - from planning to development, testing and even creating distribution models.

    Current activities: Greenhouse sensor testing, coated seed testing, consulting project for AgTech startup, consulting project for farm.
