About

Graduates of the Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering program from The Ohio State University with an interest in the mechanical aspects of agricultural engineering may find careers manufacturing equipment for farming, forestry, construction, transportation, global positioning, homeland security, and lawn, garden and recreational markets. 

Overview

Food, agricultural and biological engineers strive to serve society and to improve our environment. They identify and solve engineering problems related to renewable energy; environmental issues; producing safe, healthy, nutritional-value-added food products; and other areas where natural earth systems can be engineered to be more productive for humanity, yet protected for a sustained and secure future. 

Possible careers

Graduates of the Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering program from The Ohio State University interested in engineering solutions for environmental issues in agriculture may find careers at environmental agencies, consulting firms, and manufacturers and suppliers of drainage and irrigation equipment. Graduates of the food engineering specialization use their skills to design sustainable and environmentally responsible food processes for manufacturing safe, tasty, healthy, convenient food products. 

Graduates of the biological engineering specialization have opportunities for careers in biotechnology, bio-energy, bio-products, biomedical applications, biochemical processing, pharmaceuticals and bio-instrumentation. These students may also choose to prepare themselves for admission to either veterinary or medical school. The department has a strong positive record of admissions to such professional schools.

Graduates of the ecological engineering specialization will have career opportunities designing and restoring natural ecosystems like streams, wetlands and coastal systems. Graduates may work for the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Department of Agriculture, the Army Corps of Engineers and environmental consulting firms.
