Bioresources Engineering is an interdisciplinary program that integrates engineering, design, and the biological sciences with a view to preparing graduates able to apply engineering principles to the enhancement and sustainability of the world’s natural resources. Bioresources Engineers seek solutions to problems that involve plants, animals, and the environment.
The Bioresources Engineering program emphasizes interdisciplinary fundamental knowledge and practical applications in diverse engineering contexts and functional competencies needed for solving bioresources utilization problems. This program will present students with the skills needed to assess existing production, delivery, and quality management systems, introduce improvements, and communicate effectively with colleagues in multi-disciplinary teams. The goals of the program are to provide up-to-date world-class knowledge on techniques for biotech applications, food storage and processing, agricultural structures, plant and animal environments, waste management, bioremediation, environmental and ecosystem design and control, post-harvest technology, remote sensing, GIS, heat and mass transfer, fermentation, nutrition, and food safety. The Bioresources Engineering program provides students with the tools to understand how agriculture and food production interact in order to better manage agricultural, food, and biomass systems for the adequate supply of wholesome food.
