About the Program
The Agricultural Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Agricultural engineers apply their knowledge of agricultural systems, natural resources, and engineering to equipment design and assure environmental compatibility of practices used by production agriculture. The Agricultural Engineering curriculum offers great breadth, with specialization choices in machine systems engineering and environmental and natural resources engineering. Subject areas include computer-aided engineering, fluid power, finite element analysis, natural resource conservation, and engineering properties of biological materials. Excellent career opportunities exist in product engineering, equipment research and design, facilities design, environmental consulting, and engineering management. Students in this program earn a Bachelor of Science in Agricultureal Engineering, (BSAGE).
