Q: I am a junior in high school and all my life I have enjoyed building things, solving problems and drawing plans for various devices. After doing a little bit of construction with an engineer on a mission trip with church, I am pretty sure I want to go into engineering. My only problem is that when I understand math I love it, but there are times when I don’t understand it and then I can’t stand it. I am in Trig Analysis / Pre-calculus this year and I like solving the problems, but I still have mixed feelings. Do you or any students that you work with have the same problem and do you think it would be a big hindrance to me if I want to succeed in Civil Engineering?

Q: I am a senior attending a small rural high school in the United States. I am very interested in majoring in Biological Systems Engineering in college. I would like to get some information on:

1. the criteria you used in choosing an engineering college;
2. the high school requirements that you had to fulfill in order to qualify;
3. what is the most interesting impact that you feel that engineering brings to the world around us?



Biological Systems Engineering (BSE) is also known as Biological and Agricultural Engineering (BAE). It is an important and expanding discipline that combines elements of biomedical engineering, bioprocess engineering, and water and environmental resources. BSE applies engineering principles to "efficiently produce, distribute and process biological products, such as food, feed and fiber, while conserving natural resources, preserving environmental quality, and ensuring the health and safety of people" (UCD). Graduates work with living systems and the environment, in areas such as food production, environmental engineering, and ecological system management.

Biological Systems Engineering and other engineering disciplines have had a profound impact on the manner by which the world produces food, fiber, timber, and energy products. Consider, for example, that "in the early twentieth century, even in industrialized countries, production of the world's food supply required the labor of at least half the population. Today, thanks in large part to advancements made by biological and agricultural engineers, developed countries can accomplish this using only a slim 2% of their populations" (ASABE).

As the world's population grows, more food, energy, and goods are required. However, natural resources are limited, and we need both higher productivity in exploiting them and assurance that we do not degrade our environment as we are improving our yields. These requirements motivate a search for new ways to use and re-use natural and agricultural products, byproducts, and wastes. Engineers must respond with viable, economical and environmentally sustainable solutions.

BSE is a broad field of study with a large number of specializations. Your specific interests will help narrow the search. Some of the specialized tracks offered at the universities we looked at are:

Aquacultural engineering
Ecological systems engineering
Energy systems engineering
Environmental engineering
Food engineering
Forest and Fiber Engineering
Machine Systems Engineering
Sensor and Control Engineering
Soil and Water Engineering

We recommend that when choosing a program of study, you first check that the program is accredited by a credible accreditation body. All the programs that are reviewed in our University Finder section are accredited. In the United States, most BSE programs are accredited by ABET.

The criteria for choosing a program are involved – they include...
(1) the content of the program (what do they teach and how much variety and choice they offer);
(2) the facilities (good laboratories are critical in BSE studies);
(3) the reputation of the program and the university;
(4) the placement of graduates (where do they go and what do they do);
(5) the univerity's location; and
(6) costs.

Our recommendation is that you study carefully the websites of schools and programs you consider, and then try to visit the 3-4 top schools on your list. Make sure that your visit includes a meeting with the BSE program undergraduate student advisor, as well as a meeting with some students who go through the program (these meetings have to be arranged in advance with the program you are visiting, and the process will tell you a lot about how these programs approach and treat their students.)


Here are several institutions that offer degrees in BSE in the United States:
University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Virginia Tech, Washington State University, University of California Davis, and
Texas A&M. The Tryengineering University Finder shows 40 institutions with accredited programs in Agricultural Engineering.

Like any engineering program, Biological Systems Engineering and Agricultural Engineering programs require that new students have some background in mathematics and science. The typical mathematics requirement is four (4) years of high school math, including two (2) years of algebra, one (1) year of geometry, and one (1) year of trigonometry and pre-calculus. Most universities also require three (3) years of natural science, including one (1) year of physics and one (1) year of chemistry. There may also be minimum requirements on standardized tests (such as the SAT or ACT in the United States. Our University Finder lists average SAT scores and/or ACT scores for any university that requires these tests. There are also links to the admissions department for each of the universities.)

Q: BACKGROUND: We live in Sierra Vista, AZ, about 70 miles SE of Tucson. My 17 year old son is a high school senior and wants to become an engineer, but is still undecided which engineering sub-category he wants to specialize in. He is interested in robotics and maybe nanotechnology. He has taken Advanced Placement classes in English, Mathematics and Physics. He already has earned some college credit by signing up for Dual-Credit classes. We are split over 2 options: 1) having him attend for the first 2 years a community college which has a 2-year Pre-Engineering Program, and then have him attend a traditional university for the last 2 years of college; or 2) having him start as a freshman in a traditional 4-year institution.

QUESTIONS:

What, if any, are the pros and cons of both options? Is there an industry bias out there when it comes to hiring an applicant who either completed a 4 year program right away or first did a 2 year program and then finished up a 4 year program?
