Latest Research

Precision Agriculture or better known as Precision farming is a farming management system based on the use of modern technologies. In other words, a technology and information based farm management system to identify, analyse and control parameters in fields or plantations to increase crop production, yield, quality, safety and others. Data collected using sensor technology, IOT will allow farmers to optimise the use of fertilisers, pesticide, water for different crops, land areas, to improve soil quality, execute targeted key interventions to increase safety, quality, standard and yield of crops.

We have a list of exciting research projects in the areas of IOT precision agriculture based analytic enabled Smart farming to develop IOT based systems as well as the usage of data analytic for precision farming applications.

Professor Postgraduate Students’ Paths

A successful postgraduate student is a person who is passionate about seeking new knowledge, a person with an inquisitive mind, a person with the ability to persevere and accomplish tasks, a person with the ability to think and work independently and many others. If you are considering taking up a postgraduate degree, the first and most crucial point to ponder is – what piques your interest and curiosity? What gets you excited when you read or talk about it? Do you see yourself spending time exploring a topic, tackling and solving the challenges within, making real contributions to the field, and, enjoying it too? If your answer is ‘yes’, then this path is for you. Granted, earning a postgraduate degree is no walk in the garden – however, regardless of how the challenging the journey is, it will be less difficult and more pleasant when you have a strong, supportive and knowledgeable mentor to walk it with you. The importance of choosing the right supervisor cannot be stressed enough. In looking for a potential supervisor or mentor, some of the aspects to consider, apart from the expertise, are compatibility of working styles and communication.  What are you waiting for? The exciting postgraduate journey is right here for you to explore. We cannot wait to hear from you and feel free to book an appointment with us to further explore this path of postgraduate studies.
