VSU Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering about program

About the Program

The BSABE program is designed to produce graduates who possess knowledge, skills, and attitudes in the application of engineering science and designs to the processes and systems involved in the sustainable production, post production, and processing of safe food, feed, fiber, timber, and other agricultural and biological materials; the efficient utilization, conservation, and development of climate change mitigation measures, in order to enhance human health in harmony with the environment. Agricultural and Biosystems (AB) consist of crops, poultry, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture resources, forestry and other plants, new renewable energy, wastes, natural resources, and climates.

The graduates of BSABE are expected to understand and apply engineering science and designs to identify, analyse, and create solutions for problems concerning land development; irrigation and drainage including dams, farm roads and bridges; AB production machinery; new and renewable energy, AB buildings and structures; postharvest and processing technologies; climate change, and natural resources, environmental and waste management.

The present curriculum introduces specializations by requiring the students to engage in any of the following major fields: Construction Engineering and Management, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Transportation Engineering, and Water Resources Engineering.
