Grad Emphasis Areas
Masters and PhD in Biosystems Engineering
Biosystems engineers use engineering, math, and life science to design systems to manage soil and water resources, produce food, develop biological products, and manage and analyze large data sets. They work on projects involving wise use of energy, materials, biochemicals, and recyclable wastes. They combine technical knowledge, computer techniques, and control systems for a deeper understanding of agriculture and biology -- knowledge which someday may be used to design life support systems for colonies on other planets. Students may specialize in water resource engineering or biological engineering.
