Biological and Agricultural Engineering is a multidisciplinary program that offers students flexibility to accommodate a blend of engineering and science in their programs of study and research projects. Students apply engineering and biological principles to conduct high-quality research and to develop and disseminate knowledge and technologies in the areas of agriculture, food, energy, and natural resource systems. BSysE offers the Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Biological and Agricultural Engineering with four areas of emphasis: a) Food Engineering, b) Bioenergy and Bioproduct Engineering, c) Land, Air, Water Resources and Environmental Engineering, and d) Agricultural Automation Engineering.
Agricultural Automation Engineering: Develop engineering solutions for processes and equipment to meet the needs in specialty crop production.
Bioenergy and Bioproducts Engineering: Develop engineering processes to produce useful, high-value products from the byproducts of agricultural operations and other sources of plant biomass.
Food Engineering: The application of engineering to the production of safe, nutritious food.
Land, Air, Water Resources and Environmental Engineering (LAWREE): Engineering applications related to hydrologic processes at the field level or at the scale of large water sheds. Application of engineering and biological principles to the study the environmental impact of managed biological systems, including agriculture, confined animal operations, aquaculture, and natural resources.
