  • Research, instruction and outreach programs use systems approach from molecular to ecosystem scale, to develop engineering-based solutions for the safe, efficient and environmentally sensitive production, processing, and management of agricultural, biological, food, and natural resource systems.
  • Students are exposed to hands-on learning opportunities that are augmented with field visits and lab experiences.
  • Biosystems Engineering has 43% female students; the highest proportion of any engineering program at Auburn University.
  • The department is the only program in the Southeast that produce graduates, and conducts research and provides outreach in ecological engineering, in forest engineering and in poultry housing technology. Forestry and poultry are the top two economic impact industries in the Southeast.
  • Faculty are dedicated to graduating cross-disciplinary engineers, that are practical and that have adaptable problem-solving skills.
  • Faculty are dynamic and forward-looking. For example, 50% of faculty are professional engineers thereby setting example of professionalism for students, and the need for the students to pursue professional engineering licensure.
