Building Sustainable Solutions
The K-State Carl and Melinda Helwig Department of Biological and Agricultural engineering is committed to generating and disseminating knowledge in agricultural and biological systems. Our mission is to advance the knowledge and application of engineering and technology to living systems including plants, animals, microorganisms, agriculture and the environment. Students learn to apply physical and biological principles and technical sciences to living systems in a diverse world of opportunities.
K-State is the only higher education institute in Kansas offering a Biological Systems Engineering (BSE), an Agricultural Technology Management (ATM) degree, and an Environmental Engineering(ENVE) degree. These three programs have one goal of Building Sustainable Solutions. We seek to provide a safe, sustainable food and fiber supply for the world, use technology to protect the environment and conserve resources, and utilize biological base products to develop new global opportunities.
