(From CMO 94 s. 2017 – PSGs for BS Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering)



Program Educational Objectives


The graduates of the BSABE, 3-5 years after graduation and passing the board examination, shall:

1.    Provide leadership in planning, implementation and monitoring ABE projects and programs;

2.    Occupy supervisory positions in private and public organizations, locally and internationally;

3.    Own and/or manage ABE based business enterprises;

4.    Pursue advance studies in ABE and emerging related fields; and

5.    Occupy responsible positions in ABE education.



Specific Professions/Careers/Occupation for the Graduates


            The scope of the practice of Agricultural Biosystems Engineering, as defined in R.A.10915, known as “The Philippine Agricultural and Bio systems Engineering Act of 2016,” embraces services in the preparation of engineering designs, plans,specifications, project studies, feasibility studies, estimates, and supervision of the construction, operation, and maintenance of irrigation and drainage, soil and water conservation and management systems,agrometeorological systems, AB machinery and power, AB buildings and structures, farm electrification, renewable energy systems, AB processing and post-harvest facilities and systems, AB waste utilization and management, AB resource conservation and management, climate change mitigation measures, AB information systems, and AB automation and instrumentation systems. This enumeration of work shall not be construed as excluding any other work requiring AB engineering knowledge and application. The teaching of professional AB engineering courses in the curriculum of the BSABE program or a subject in the AB Engineering licensure examination is also considered as practice of AB Engineering.

            The students at the time of graduation from the program shall have the ability to;


1.    Apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve complex AB engineering problems;

2.    Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;

3.    Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints, in accordance with the standards;

4.    Function in multidisciplinary and multi-cultural teams;

5.    Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems;

6.    Understand professional and ethical responsibility;

7.    Communicate effectively complex AB engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large;

8.    Understand the impact of AB engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context;

9.    Recognize the need for, and engage in life-long learning

10. Know contemporary issues;

11. Use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for AB engineering practice;

12. Know and understand engineering and management principles as a member and leader of a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment; and

13. Understand at least one specialized field of ABE practice.
