Graduate Programs

The Program
The graduate program in Bioresource Engineering at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, takes a systems-oriented approach to solving the problems of agricultural production and environmental conservation. The program emphasizes the crucial link among current engineering practices, scientific principles and basic concerns of the vital industries operating in these areas.

The program focuses on issues such as bioresource utilization and planning, and intensive production agriculture. Work is also done on improving methods of bioremediation, controlled environment plant production systems, pollution control, systems studies and analyses. Students are involved in many efforts, including exploring the engineering properties of biological materials, assessing the effects of waste management, and buildings.

For those with a special interest in engineering for controlled environment agriculture, there are specializations in environmental control, crop production systems, systems analysis, flexible automation, and machine vision. NASA's Selection of New Jersey as the home of NSCORT recognizes Rutgers University as a world leader in CEPPS.
