Centennial Celebration

100 years of engineering for agriculture, forestry and natural resources

The Department of Biosystems Engineering will reach its 100-year milestone in 2019.  We are planning to celebrate the history and contribution of our department to elevating the standard of rural living and economic development of the region. A few examples of the historic contributions of our department include rural electrification, cotton harvesting equipment, farm terracing and soil tillage, precision agriculture, water for agriculture, poultry housing and environment, forest engineering, ecological and environmental engineering, and biofuels and bioprocessing development.
