Welcome to the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering
The Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering at North Dakota State University is here to serve our students and our profession by providing quality educational programs that prepare graduates for 21st century living and career opportunities. Our department strives to generate new knowledge in engineering and allied technologies for production agriculture, the food system, and related environmental resources.
Our mission is to discover and extend knowledge and technology (via teaching, research and extension programs) that serve to advance the productivity of agriculture, the processing and utilization of biological materials, and the sustainability, use and management of environmental resources.
The Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering department actively conducts research that extends the knowledge base for enhancing agricultural efficiency, profitability and sustainability as well as maintaining quality and adding value to biological materials. Our extension faculty provide outreach education focused on identified issues and needs including agri-production systems, environmental resources management and agricultural safety.
Agricultural Technology Expo
February 14, 2015
The 67th Annual Agricultural Technology Exposition "Soaring to New Heights" will be held February 14th, 2015. The show takes place in the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Building, room 123 from 9am to 4pm. This year we have approximately 60 students, from the ABEN and ASM majors, participating in this years show. We are looking forward to some great projects showcasing the newest cutting edge concepts in the Ag industry. Following the show, we will be putting on a banquet at 5:30 that evening in the Prairie Rose Room of the Memorial Union, with Tommy Kenville of Unmanned Applications Institute International (UAI) in Grand Forks, ND speaking about the newest concepts in unmanned aviation, precision agriculture, and how the two tie together. Tickets for the banquet are $20 and can be purchased through the expo staff. All are welcome to attend the show, we look forward to seeing you there!
