The Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Bio system Engineering is a 4 year course designed to produce graduates who possess knowledge, skills, and attitudes in the application of engineering science and designs to the processes and systems involved in the sustainable production, post-production, and processing of safe food, feed, fiber, timber, and other agricultural and biological materials; the efficient utilization, conservation, and management of natural and renewable resources; and development of natural and renewable resources; and development of climate change mitigation measures in order to enhance human health in harmony with the environment. Agricultural and Bio systems (AB) consist of crops, poultry, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture resources, forestry and other plants, new and renewable energy, wastes, and natural resources, and climate.


  • Train students in the application of engineering principles particularly in the solution of problems related to agro-industrial development;
  • Prepare them to become professionals with entry-level competencies;
  • Develop appreciation in the students, of the potentials of an agricultural engineering business enterprise;
  • Instill in the students a concern for the preservation and protection of the natural environment; and
  • Prepare students for advanced studies.
