Engineering for life
Prepare yourself for our new green century. Biosystems and agricultural engineers help us understand and improve all the ways our complex industrial society interacts with the natural world. You’ll take coursework in a variety of subdisciplines within the larger umbrella of biosystems and agriculture, as well as linking courses to the biological sciences. Whether you study drinking water purification, food production methods or the environmental impact of biological byproducts, you’ll be earning a first-class engineering education.
Better food for us all
Agricultural engineers help advance farming, develop new ways to irrigate crops, produce more efficient equipment and create new ways to purify and package products for consumers. You’ll develop self-sufficient processing systems and technologies to preserve the natural environment while producing sufficient food products for Kentucky, the United States and the entire world.
Humans, animals and plants alike need clean and healthful environments. As a biosystems engineer, you’ll find new ways to power and run the systems that support agricultural industries and discover new ways to maintain appropriate environmental controls. You’ll also be on the cutting edge of treating soil and water pollution, developing bio-based renewable energy sources and more environmentally-friendly food packaging.
