The K-State Carl and Melinda Helwig Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering is unique. Our mission, to advance the knowledge and application of engineering and technology to living systems, agriculture and the environment, guides us as we serve our students, our communities and the world.
Our department is small enough to care, and our people are big enough to make a difference.
We hope you will explore our website to learn more about us, our programs and how we are Building Sustainable Solutions.
