About Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering
Since 1905, the Department of Agricultural Engineering, now the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, has been a leader in providing engineering solutions to agricultural problems in the United States and the world. The department's original mission was to mechanize agriculture. That mission has evolved to encompass a global view of the entire food production system--the wise management of natural resources in the production, processing, storage, handling, and use of food fiber and other biological products.
Current research efforts include agricultural water quality and management, engineering for economically and environmentally sound animal production systems, grain handling and food processing, agricultural machine design and automated controls, precision farming systems, agricultural safety, seed conditioning and processing, and soil tillage and management systems.
Research is being directed increasingly toward biosystems engineering through the use of biosensors, image analysis, biological systems modeling, and the design and control of biological systems and processes.
