Mission

The mission of the Department of Biological Systems Engineering is to educate engineers and managers, conduct research, and transfer engineering technology to benefit Nebraska's biological systems.

Role

The Department of Biological Systems Engineering shares the roles as a Land Grant Institution and a member of the Association of American Universities with missions in teaching, research, extension, and service.

Our department is uniquely situated in both the College of Engineering and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR) through the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR). Its connectivity with other academic units through joint faculty appointments, and having faculty at research and extension centers throughout Nebraska, is a source of strength and support for our departmental missions.
