Finding Solutions for Life on a Small Planet

  • 40% projected increase in world population by 2030 will add 2 billion people to the planet
  • Growing world population requires more food, water, energy, goods
  • Limited resources demand we do more with less, without degrading our natural world
slide3

Biological and Agricultural Engineers ensure growing population has the necessities for life

  • Safe and abundant food and water
  • Timber and fiber for shelter and clothing
  • Plentiful and renewable energy resources
  • A healthy environment in which to live
slide4

Biological and Agricultural Engineers—what do they do?

  • Devise practical, efficient solutions for producing, storing, transporting, processing, and packaging agricultural products
  • Solve problems related to systems, processes, and machines that interact with humans, plants, animals, microorganisms, and biological materials
  • Develop solutions for responsible, alternative uses of agricultural products, byproducts and wastes and of our natural resources - soil, water, air, and energy
slide5

“I foundbiological and agricultural engineering to be a challenging field of study and very different from the typical engineering fields. And, I have the chance to work in an industry that affects everyone in the world!”

“Other university departmentsare so big and impersonal, but my faculty took time to get to know me and help me grow, personally as well as academically. There is a real sense of community in this major.”

“My studiesprepared me for the job market by exposing me to many different experiences and scenarios that come across in work.”
