Majors and Programs

College of Engineering: Agricultural Engineering

As an agricultural engineering student you will learn how to design systems that directly impact peoples’ lives. You will explore the biological, physical, and engineering sciences and apply your knowledge to solving problems using agricultural and biological engineering design methods. You may specialize in either power and machinery engineering, animal production systems engineering, or land and water resources engineering. If you choose the power and machinery option, you will study functional analysis and design of agricultural field machinery, agricultural tractor power, instrumentation, agri-industrial application of electric power and electronics, and  fluid power engineering. The animal production systems engineering option allows you to focus on all aspects of animal production including structural design and analysis, environmental control options for housed animals, and air quality issues associated with animal production. In the land and water resources engineering option, you will study the design and evaluation of soil and water conservation systems, GIS and natural resource management, and principles of environmental engineering.
