The Master of Science in biosystems engineering merges engineering and agricultural science to improve quality of life while maintaining the environment and preserving natural resources.
The focus of biosystems engineering is to enhance the production and profitability of agricultural and biological products. Biosystems engineers work at the interface of biology and technology to address problems and opportunities related to food, water, energy, and the environment-all of which are critical to the future.
