What is machine systems and agricultural engineering?

The machine systems and agricultural engineering option is structured around design and development of machine systems and smart technologies to enhance sustainable crop productivity impacted by population growth, reduced land availability and limited resources.

Why machine systems and agricultural engineering?

If you enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together, find yourself always wondering how things work, and get excited by machinery, this degree option may be a good fit for you. Understanding the mechanics and structural integrity of machines and components of emerging technologies necessary to support advances in off-road equipment design and sustainability of the agricultural industry are integral to 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.
