Biosystems Engineering (BSE)

 

Biosystems Engineering involves the integration of engineering principles with biological, environmental, and agricultural sciences to develop food and bioenergy production systems. Thus the curriculum of Biosystems Engineering Bachelor Degree Program at AIT blends the processes of biological systems with engineering principles to empower students with knowledge and skills to develop innovative food (crop, livestock, fish) production and product processing systems, and renewable bioenergy derived from biological sources.

Program Structure

At the initial stage, Bachelor of Science in Biosystems Engineering (BSE) program has been designed to follow 2 +2 (first 2 year in the mother country + final 2 years in AIT) structure. The successful students, who earn CGPA above 2.5 in the first two years, will be entitled to enroll as 3rd year students at AIT to complete the Bachelor degree. Students having earned CGPA above 2 will be allowed to enter under probation and once they earned CGPA 2.5, they will transfer to the UG program. The degree programs have been designed to provide a thorough background in engineering fundamentals and mathematics to prepare students with a basic science background, particularly in chemistry, physics and biology, to complete successfully an engineering degree. After the completion of B.Sc. in BSE students may consider finding an employment opportunity or following Master's and PhD programs at AIT or elsewhere.

 

Potential Careers

A broad range of career opportunities exist for a Biosystems Engineer in the private sector, government, or academia, and they are particularly qualified to work at production systems and research areas that use technology and living systems interface – whether in food, fiber, and fuel production, environmental resources optimization issues, or cleaner production in a biological context.

A graduate can choose to be a production process designer in agricultural/aquaculture/livestock production systems, a developer of post‐harvest technologies, a product designer in the food industry, a technical/quality control manager in food manufacturing and packaging industries or a production engineer in a livestock/fish feed mill. Government agencies hire Biosystems Engineers in developing and implementing food quality control standards and to develop appropriate technological tools that can be extended to small‐holder farmers. Universities and research institutions employ Biosystems Engineers in their research and education programs in agricultural Engineering and bioprocess technology.

 

A BSE bachelor degree holder can enter into higher education programs at either the Master's or Doctoral level in Agricultural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Bioprocess technology, Bioenergy etc. in universities worldwide to advance their knowledge and skills further.
