How Will BAE 'see blue' this semester?
- Through research: A model of Dr. Nokes's biomass project, funded by a $6.9 million federal grant for research to reduce reliance on imported oil, is on display in the Barnhart atrium. | Read 'Herald-Leader' news article.
- Outside: Dr. Agouridis and grad student Mary Weatherford worked on BAE 532's conceptual design plan to restore a stream at UK's North Farm. | Read UK Now article.
- Through innovation: While he was still a grad student, Engineer Associate Mathew Ruwaya designed two pieces of equipment for BAE's Wet Lab, sourcing parts online and building the new devices.
- With novel experiences: Dr. Colliver took his EGR 649 – Energy Experiences class on a tour of the TVA nuclear power plant last spring.
- By sharing expertise: Research on grain storage has taken Dr. McNeill to Ghana and Nigeria.

We Teach Sustainable Systems and Solutions
Through the land-grant university's tri-part mission of research, education, and extension, Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering (BAE) seeks to develop sustainable systems for the production and processing of food, fiber, and renewable energy products, and to minimize or mitigate the impact of these systems on the environment.
With broad undergraduate and graduate offerings, including a new graduate certificate in stream and watershed science, we are educating future leaders in the biological, environmental, and engineering sciences.
Find Out Where You Fit In
Biosystems engineers are trained in biological, environmental, and engineering sciences and challenged to improve the sustainability of production systems, decrease or eliminate environmental hazards, and preserve natural resources. With four main areas of research and study, BAE opens the door to great careers. Learn more:
