The K-State 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) and an Agricultural Technology Management (ATM) degree. Together, these two programs have one goal of bringing solutions to life. 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.

The Biological Systems Engineering undergraduate degree program
The BSE program is a versatile program that offers environmental, machine systems and biological engineering options. The B.S. BSE degree is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). 

The Agricultural Technology Management undergraduate degree program
The ATM program is designed to prepare students for careers requiring the integration of science, engineering technology and business principles to manage human and natural resources and systems for producing, processing and marketing food and other biological materials.
