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. Therefore, 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 that leads to a Bachelor of Biosystems Engineering. Options in Bioprocess Engineering, Ecological Engineering, and Forest Engineering  are also available under the Biosystems Engineering degree program.

The Biosystems Engineering program is coordinated by the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, the College of Agriculture, and the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences. Students should apply for admission to the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and complete the Pre-Biosystems Engineering program.

The Department of Biosystems Engineering also offers a non-engineering degree, Biological and Agricultural Technology Management (BATM) through the College of Agriculture.
