The colleges of Agricultural and Life Sciences and Engineering offer the agricultural and biological engineering curriculum cooperatively.
Students in this major receive basic training in engineering and agriculture to solve the specialized engineering problems of agricultural production and processing systems and the management and conservation of agricultural land and water resources.
Since engineering problems in agriculture relate to biological production and processing of biological products, training in agriculture, and biology courses are required.
Students will register in the College of Engineering and will receive the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Agricultural and Biological Engineering). Refer to that college for the curriculum.
Precision Agriculture Minor
A minor in precision agriculture is a multidisciplinary study. You will use satellite imagery, aerial photography, field sensors and the Global Positioning System to acquire information about field conditions. This information is organized and analyzed using a digital mapping system called Geographical Information System. Once analyzed, this can assist in making effective management decisions (see Agricultural and Biological Engineering).
Completion of the precision agriculture minor requires a total of 15 credit hours from the following categories:
A. Precision Agriculture: (Six credits required.) It is recommended that AOM4455 be taken first.
B. Remote Sensing: (Three credit hours required from this category.)
C. Geographic Information Systems: (Three credit hours required from this category.)
D. Crop Management & Field Techniques (Three credit hours required from this category.)
