The BS Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (BSABE) program is a four-year degree program “designed to produce graduates who possess knowledge, skills, and attitudes in the application of engineering science and designs to the processes and systems involved in the sustainable production, post production, and processing of safe food, feed, fiber, timber, and other agricultural and biological materials; the efficient utilization, conservation, and management of natural resources; and development of climate change mitigation measures, in order to enhance human health in harmony with the environment. Agricultural and Biosystems (AB) consists of crops, poultry, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture resources, forestry and other plants, new and renewable energy, wastes, natural resources, and climate.”1
“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.”1
The Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (DABE) under the College of Engineering and Food Science endeavors to implement a responsive BSABE program intended to develop agricultural and biosystems engineers and promote agricultural and biosystems engineering science and technologies for competitive productivity.
