Department of Biosystems Engineering

Biosystems engineers ensure that we have the necessities of life: healthy food to eat, clean water to drink, renewable fuel and energy sources, and a healthy environment in which to live. The mission of the Department of Biosystems Engineering at Auburn University is to develop and disseminate engineering knowledge to solve problems in biological systems, natural resources, and the environment. It meets the resident instruction portion of that mission through the offering of a degree program which leads to a Bachelor of Biosystems Engineering, and another degree that leads to Bachelor of Science in Biological and Agricultural Technology Management. The four pathways to the BSEN degree program (biosystems engineering pathway, bioprocess engineering option, ecological engineering option, and forest engineering option), and the biological and agricultural technology management degree program are described below:

Biosystems Engineering

The Department of Biosystems Engineering offers the only accredited degree in biosystems engineering in Alabama. It is committed to preparing students for productive professional careers in the biosystems industries and related natural resource and environmental systems sectors. 

The biosystems engineering program curriculum pathway is coordinated by the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. Students should apply for admission to the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and complete the pre-biosystems engineering program.

Bioprocess Engineering Option

The focus of the bioprocess engineering option is to produce engineers that seamlessly combine engineering and natural sciences to designing and developing systems, processes and equipment that convert biological and agricultural materials to value-added products such as food, nutraceuticals, polymers and pharmaceuticals. Bioprocess engineers provide a bridge between the research lab and the economic, large-scale implementation of technologies used to convert these biological materials to value-added products. The bioprocess engineering option is coordinated by the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. Students should apply for admission to the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and complete the bioprocess engineering option portion of the pre-biosystems engineering program.

Ecological Engineering Option

The Department of Biosystems Engineering offers an option in ecological engineering as part of the Bachelor of Biosystems Engineering degree. This option prepares students to solve environmental problems by applying engineering knowledge to natural ecological and biological systems. Ecological engineering combines basic and applied science from engineering, ecology, economics, and natural sciences to design, construct, and manage sustainable ecosystems that have value to both humans and the natural environment. The ecological engineering option is coordinated by the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. Students should apply for admission to the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and complete the ecological engineering option portion of the pre-biosystems engineering program.

Forest Engineering Option

The Department of Biosystems Engineering (in conjunction with the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment) offers an option in forest engineering as part of the Bachelor of Biosystems Engineering degree.

This forest engineering option involves preparing graduates to be able to apply of engineering principles and techniques for sustainable management and maintenance of trees, soil, water and other natural resources with the forest ecosystem. Forest engineering is therefore a hybrid of engineering, forest and management that is focused on efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly utilization of these resources. Therefore, this option prepares students for productive professional careers in the forest products industry and related natural resource and environmental systems sector.

The forest engineering option is coordinated by the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment, and is administered by the Department of Biosystems Engineering. Students can become registered foresters upon completion of a minor in forest resources. Beginning students should apply to the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and complete the forest engineering option portion of the pre-biosystems engineering program. Students pursuing the forest engineering option must meet College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment requirements for admission to the Forestry Summer Field Practicum.

Biological and Agricultural Technology Management

Students enrolled in the biological and agricultural technology management (BATM) major take a variety of courses in technology, science and management that will enable them to be practical problem solvers, and be able to manage and develop solutions to the technological challenges of the increasingly complex agricultural and biological systems of the 21st century. The curriculum is also designed such that students can simultaneously obtain a minor in agronomy and soils, stewardship-based agriculture, agribusiness, information systems management, technical and professional communication, poultry science or business analytics. The BATM curriculum is coordinated by the College of Agriculture.
