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 graduates help design processes, structures, and equipment to protect water, soil, wetlands, and ecosystems, or develop new biofuels and biotech products.
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 (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.
AOM concentrations include:
- Sustainable Energy and Facilities
- Agribusiness Management
- Fishery and Aquatic Production
- Animal Production Management
- Horticulture and Crop Management
- Soil and Water Science
