Engineering Career Opportunities
Jobs for Biological Engineers
Job opportunities and careers for biological engineering involved in agriculture, bioprocesses and the environment frequently are a combination of indoor and outdoor work. Engineering jobs may require product design and development, plant engineering and management, engineering consulting, and design of systems working with biological, natural resources and the environment. Jobs can be found in the private sector, research, teaching and the government sector.
Agricultural and environmental technology graduates are typically employed in jobs that involve the application and management of engineering designs in the conservation and utilization of natural resources, agricultural production systems, water and animal waste management, structures and environmental controls, and agribusiness management. Both programs may lead to jobs with private businesses, governmental agencies (county, state, and federal), or public utilities. Students learn while participating in hands-on research projects overseen by faculty and extension personnel.
