Bachelor of Science (BS) in Biosystems Analytics and Technology
A Bachelor of Science degree in Biosystems Analytics and Technology (BAT) combines data science with applied engineering to take a systems-level approach to technological design & development at the nexus of food, water, and energy. This program will support training opportunities in precision agriculture, remote sensing, water management, statistical informatics, data-mining, and cyberinfrastructure development. The emerging areas of engineering technology and applied data science warrant the need for new experts the field of Biosystems Technology & Analytics that can apply these tools to solve real-world problems.
The Biosystems Analytics and Technology major prepares you for a variety of careers, from academia to industry, to meet the needs of the 4th Industrial Revolution—the convergence of science, technology, and analytics. You’ll focus on combining biological, physical, and data sciences with technology and the ability to apply these tools to environmental, ecological, biological, agricultural, and human systems. You’ll learn how to manage large-scale data from environmental and human metagenomics, remote sensing and precision observations, and sensors and controls to address important global challenges at the core of food, water, and energy challenges.
Meeting the grand challenges of tomorrow will require a convergence of new ideas, approaches, and technologies from diverse disciplines. Make a difference in the world by using technology and data to improve precision and controlled environment agriculture, remote sensing, water management, statistical informatics, data-mining, and cyberinfrastructure development.
