The Biosystems Engineering major aims to train students apply quantitative skills to create products, processes, and systems that improve human existence. Working at the interface of engineering and biology, biosystems engineers are engaged in the most important challenges of our time. Biosystems engineers may, for example, design pathogen control processes to protect the safety of our food supply, constructed wetlands to improve water quality and quantity, biomass conversion processes to sustainably supply renewable energy and products, and/or diagnostic and risk modeling systems to protect and enhance human and animal health.
