Description of Engineering
Engineering is about creating new solutions to existing or future problems. Engineers are problem solvers who employ science, math,
analysis and synthesis to design unique and practical solutions to everyday problems. They must accomplish this often under the
constraints of time, budgets, and safety and health issues. Engineers also must be concerned about the environmental, political and
social impact their answers will create. Under the Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering degree, students may choose
engineering fields of study in biomedical, environmental and bioprocessing. The Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering
degree is actually a General Engineering degree program and students have alternatives in computer systems engineering,
electrical/electronic systems, engineering physics, mechanical systems, natural resource management, process operations and
structural systems.
