What is environmental and natural resources biosystems engineering?

The environment and natural resources engineering option focuses on identifying biological mechanisms and designing systems to restore water and soil resources to more natural states in the face of urban development and climate and land use changes.

Why environmental and natural resources biosystems engineering?

If you are intrigued by natural ecosystems and how humans, animals and plants interact with available water, variable soils, and surrounding air quality, this degree option would be a good fit for you. Engineering devices, management strategies and geospatial and predictive model development targeted at improving the quality of our natural resources and environmental sustainability are tied into the curriculum.

Career paths

Our graduates can look forward to a career in one or more of the following fields:

STRONG PARTNERSHIP

Biosystems engineering students are part of both the Ferguson College of Agriculture and the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology.

Highlights

Real-World Projects

Each student in the biosystems engineering program will complete the two-semester senior design capstone course. The capstone provides you a team driven, open-ended design experience, and your final projects are evaluated by an external professional advisory panel.

 

Hands-on from the Start

Freshman and transfer students design a portion of a capstone senior design project.

 

Award-Winning Student Organizations

The Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering is home multiple student organizations, including Cowboy Motorsports and Cowboy Waterworks.

 

A strong partnership

Biosystems engineering students are part of both the Ferguson College of Agriculture and the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology which enables them to benefit from the strengths of both academic colleges. Students receive communication from both colleges and are able to take advantage of the services, scholarships and award recognition programs available in both.

 

One Degree, Two Colleges

Biosystems engineering graduates have the benefit of embracing the interdisciplinary features of the degree and representation of two colleges, the Ferguson College of Agriculture and the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology, rooted in STEM and the founding of our land grant institution.

 

Nationally Accredited Program

The bachelor of science degree in biosystems engineering is accredited, along with the other engineering programs in the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology, through the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. The Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering and its faculty are administered through the Ferguson College of Agriculture.
