This minor provides students with an opportunity to apply engineering principles to agricultural and biological production and processing systems and to the management of our natural resources. Courses may be selected by students to gain a better understanding of soil conservation and water quality, food and biological process engineering, structures and their environments, power and machinery, or microbiological engineering.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
