Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science faculty are involved in teaching, research, extension, and public service. Several have had extensive experience in industry, and all are actively interested and involved in student development.

Our award-winning faculty have gained national recognition for their work and serve on national committees for standards development and coordination of research efforts. Following are some the areas in which they specialize:

  • irrigation
  • soil physics
  • erosion control
  • subsurface hydrology
  • waste management
  • electronic data acquisition and control
  • soil nutrient management
  • bioclimatology
  • biofuel production
  • machine design
  • forage harvesting machinery
  • chemical application equipment
  • grain drying.

Every student entering the program is assigned a faculty advisor. The advisor assists in the selection of both required and elective courses and helps design a program geared to the student's needs and career interests. This student-advisor relationship provides an avenue for the student to become familiar with faculty and departmental activities and to learn about opportunities for internships and for permanent employment upon graduation.
