A bio-based revolution is underway, and it is fundamentally changing how the world produces and consumes food, feed, fiber, materials, chemicals, fuel, and energy.

The Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering's research and academic programs (both undergraduate and graduate) are at the forefront in the discovery, development and application of the renewable resources and sustainable technologies required to meet the global population’s increasingly sophisticated needs, while at the same time enhancing and preserving the environment.

 The Four Core Areas of Study are:

Bioproducts, and
Renewable Energy


Environmental and Ecological Engineering


Food Production,
Processing, Safety 
and Security


Advanced Building 
Systems and
Energy Efficiency
