Agricultural and Biological Engineering

Agricultural and Biological Engineering

Undergraduate Program

Two specializations are offered for our Bachelor of Science degree at the undergraduate level: Biological Engineering and Agricultural Operations Management. Students who have an interest in engineering, biology, packaging, the management of commercial businesses or agricultural and environmental systems can choose a major that fits their career goals.

Biological Engineering

Biological engineering applies engineering principles to biological sciences to produce biofuels, food, feed, fiber, and other agricultural products from renewable bio-resources. It also aims to protect the environment and conserve and replenish our natural resources and engineer environmentally sustainable packaging solutions for the consumer and food industries.

  • Concentrations

    There are four concentrations available in the Biological Engineering program:

    • Biosystems Engineering
    • Land and Water Resources Engineering
    • Packaging Engineering
    • Agricultural Production Engineering

Agricultural Operations Management

Agricultural Operations Management (AOM) provides students with knowledge and skills in both the technical and business aspects of management for a variety of commercial and family-owned operations including energy and environmental systems, agricultural production, and technical sales.


  • Concentrations

    AOM concentrations include:

    • Sustainable Energy and Facilities
    • Agribusiness Management
    • Fishery and Aquatic Production
    • Animal Production Management
    • Horticulture and Crop Management
    • Soil and Water Science
