Biological and Process Engineering and Technology

We are dedicated to the study and engineering of a wide array of biological systems and processing technologies. Our research spans from biomass pretreatment to sensor development, from life-cycle analysis to novel processing techniques, from food-safety to fermentation modeling, and from grain quality to bio-nanotechnology. In addition, much of our current work addresses critical needs within the developing bioeconomy. We are also tightly connected to ABE degree options in Biological Systems Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Agricultural Systems Technology, and Industrial Technology.
