Agricultural Engineering


Do you like to tinker with machinery, and try to invent new or better ways to do things? Are you interested in designing and testing machinery, reclaiming a stream bank, or working with flow devices? Do you enjoy challenges and solving problems in math and science?

This education is for you if you like working to save the environment, or working with the design and testing of powerful equipment. Nebraska is the home of the Tractor Testing Laboratory and center pivot irrigation, two major accomplishments in the world of Agricultural Engineering.

Wouldn't you rather study something you already like?

The B.S. Degree in Agricultural Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
