Biological Systems Engineering
- Bachelor of Science
If you want to work in biotech, food processing, bioenergy, biofuels, environmental sustainability, or agricultural robotics and machine learning, biological systems engineering is a good fit for you. Wherever life science meets engineering, you will likely find a biological systems engineer.
You will spend your first two years in the major completing rigorous lower division requirements in mathematics, natural sciences and fundamental engineering concepts. At the upper division level, you will select courses from one of seven specializations: agricultural engineering, aquacultural engineering, biotechnical engineering, ecological systems engineering, food engineering, forest engineering or premedical/biomedical engineering.
