Welcome to Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering!

 

Biosystems Engineering is a biologically based engineering discipline that applies engineering knowledge and expertise to biological systems. At the University of Arizona we have two primary tracks: biological engineering and water resources engineering. The biological engineering emphasis provides background for developing biotechnology applications based on a strong knowledge of both engineering and biological sciences, and covers such applications as biosensors, bioreactors, cell cultures, aleternative fuels, and more. This emphasis also includes a premed track and a focus in controlled environment agriculture. The water resources engineering emphasis is strongly based on soil, water, and plant relationships and is aimed at water management, irrigation engineering, water quality controls and environmental management.
