The Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering program at UGA provides a fundamental understanding of the natural, mathematical, and engineering sciences and how to apply this understanding to design devices and processes.

About

The overall goals of this program are to provide a fundamental understanding of the natural, mathematical and engineering sciences and then to apply this understanding to design devices and processes in any general area. This four-year professional engineering curriculum has been designed to focus on an interdisciplinary approach to an engineering education and to take advantage of the University’s comprehensive education environment. By combining courses that focus on the principles of mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering, students are prepared for employment in a variety of engineering careers. Activities in these careers may involve design of machinery and equipment (mechanical); structural and environmental design (civil); management of water and natural resources (civil); processing, manufacturing, and quality measurement (mechanical, chemical, and electrical); and controls, energy use, microelectronics, and electrical power and machines (electrical). Graduates from this program are qualified to take advantage of employment opportunities related to civil, mechanical, electrical, agricultural and process engineering.

Students may choose from several areas of emphasis including:

  • Mechanical Systems - the design of mechanical and hydraulic systems. Course work analyzes the dynamics of machinery motion; stress/deformation/fatigue in parts; and design/selection of machinery parts such as bolted and welded connections, bearings, chain, gear, and V-belt drives and shafts.
  • Natural Resource Management - solves problems related to food, wastes, and the natural environment. Course work involves hydraulic structure design; runoff/erosion controls for rural and urban landscapes; and odor control systems associated with rural animal production and urban bioconversion.
  • Process Operations – the application of the physical, natural, and engineering sciences in the operation and design of manufacturing plants. Course work involves the study of a wide range of production processes ranging from production control to materials handling.
