Bachelor of Science in Equine Studies Graduates from this program can explore a variety of career opportunities, depending on their areas of interest. The Equine Studies bachelor’s degree program is designed for students who are passionate about working with and learning about horses and who want the flexibility to pursue a variety of careers in the larger equine industry. In addition to the traditional careers (barn manager, assistant trainer, or riding instructor), the many opportunities for employment are limited only by graduates’ imaginations and interests. Providing a solid foundation of business skills and equine knowledge, this program prepares students for success in whatever path they choose.

The core Equine Studies program is a combination of theory and hands-on experience working with horses and clients. Specific equine topics include equine anatomy and disorders;

nutrition; genetics and reproduction; training (both beginning and advanced); riding instruction techniques, equine massage, tack selection and fit; therapeutic riding, farrier practices, and equitation. Independent study and internships are encouraged.

Students with a Bachelor of Science in Equine Studies will be able to:

• Demonstrate fundamentals of equine care and facility management by utilizing knowledge to satisfactorily complete a predetermined set of skills with a minimum of 80% success

• Assess, critique, devise, and implement plans for using both teaching and training techniques, including their application in hands-on lab settings

• Recognize, examine, and implement fundamental business theories and practices, including bookkeeping and accounting systems, legal guidelines, and marketing objectives and strategies

• Demonstrate their understanding of issues in the equine industry, eventually presenting their appraisal of and recommendations about a defined area of the industry

• Review, examine, and draw conclusions about scientific theories concerning equine health, behavior, and care The minimum number of credits required for the degree is 121.

General Engineering Technology General Engineering Technology Graduates of this program are generally already employed by a variety of companies and industries seeking workforce development opportunities. Administered by the college’s Technology Extension Division, GET degree programs are industry-sponsored and offered primarily at the facilities of sponsoring organizations. The curriculum consists of initial courses common to all GET degree programs, as well as a sequence of technology foundation and technical emphasis courses specific to the workforce education needs being served. These industry-specific technical courses are developed by a curriculum development team comprised of Vermont Tech faculty and representatives from the sponsoring organizations.





The goal is to offer students a flexible, interdisciplinary path to the acquisition of basic engineering concepts and specific job-related skills needed to excel in their current positions and prepare for career growth.

The minimum number of credits for the degree is 60.

Landscape Development and Ornamental Horticulture Graduates of this program are eminently qualified for positions as landscape designers;

contractors and maintenance personnel; greenhouse growers; plant propagators; perennial growers; nursery and garden center operators; salespeople for horticultural products; and technicians for state and federal regulatory agencies. Projected job growth is excellent and there is a steady trend toward higher salaries in this field.

The curriculum features courses such as Woody Ornamentals, Herbaceous Plant Materials, Entomology, Greenhouse Management, and Plant Pathology. In addition, we offer Landscape Graphics, Landscape Construction and Maintenance, AutoCAD, and two semesters of Landscape Design.

The program combines these horticulture and landscape classes with offerings in math, English, general education, and business. Graduates from this program are well-prepared to enter today’s dynamic horticultural industry or to continue their education here at Vermont Tech or at another four-year college or university.

Students with an Associate of Applied Science in Landscape and Ornamental Horticulture

will be able to:

• Graphic Communication Skills – students develop an appropriate mastery of freehand sketching, board drafting, presentation graphics, and CADD as effective tools for the formulation, exploration, communication, and presentation of design ideas.

• Communication Skills –students develop the ability to communicate technical and theoretical information effectively to clients, customers and co-workers through both the written and spoken word; excellent listening and interpersonal skills; and the ability to understand the principles of professional conduct in all aspects of client/customer and employee/employer relations.

• Technical Skills –students demonstrate a high level of comprehension in and the ability to analyze, solve, and apply materials and methods of construction (including the respective roles of specifications and drawings, the development of design intentions at the site and detail level and their resolution according to sound principles of construction, surveying techniques in preparation of a base map, construction of stone walls and patios, statics and mechanics of basic landscape construction materials, and estimating and bidding); site engineering issues such as grading and drainage;

the creation and maintenance of healthy plant environments, both indoors and outdoors;

legal issues and regulations as they apply to land use, landscape construction and/or installation; the installation, operation, advantages and disadvantages of greenhouse and nursery environmental systems; pesticide/herbicide application; and the utilization of appropriate computer applications

• Design Skills – students learn to integrate fundamental design principles and practice, including site analysis, base plan measurements and preparation, and study of historic precedent in order to analyze, create, and apply these concepts to comprehensive and holistic landscape designs. Coursework includes working drawings, presentation drawings, client/jury presentation, and write-up. This course of study will culminate in a proposed master plan project that will integrate all aspects of design study.
