Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural Engineering prepares professional engineers for rewarding careers focusing on the systems, processes, and machines that are used to generate or utilize energy, food and water. Agricultural engineers use GPS satellite positioning to control construction and agricultural vehicles with auto guidance accuracy of 1 cm. They are developing biotech sensors to monitor plant and seed DNA to improve national security and produce high-value pharmacological crops. Agricultural engineers are leaders in creating and adding sensors to vehicles subjected to hostile environments.

In this program, you'll gain background in mechanical design, hydraulics, instrumentation and control, finite element analysis, electronics and sensors to design, develop, analyze and operate machines and systems for agricultural and biological products and processes, materials handling, construction and mining, forestry, lawn-care and food and fiber production and processing.

Agricultural Engineering is a major within the Agricultural and Biological Engineering (ABE) Department. ABE grants degrees in both the College of Agriculture and the College of Engineering. Agricultural Engineering is a degree granted in the College of Engineering, and there are multiple entry paths for students who are interested in ABE majors.

首次大学生可能适用于农业学院的农业工程(他们将从ABE前计划开始)或他们可以在工程学院中选择一年级工程(他们将在第一年开始工程计划)。每条路径的一年课程是相同的。

Transfer students who have fulfilled the一年的要求of this engineering program may apply directly to Agricultural Engineering in the College of Agriculture.

注意:第一年工程计划是所有开始工程学生的入学点。他们必须完成一年的工程要求在进入他们选择的工程学院之前。这项学生的服务计划的使命是为推荐,教导和保留优秀的学生进行普渡工程学院. This core curriculum includes courses in math, chemistry, physics, computer programming, and communication skills, as well as introductory engineering coursework taught in the new创新的想法(I2I)学习实验室. The First-Year Engineering Program provides students with a firm foundation and initial understanding of engineering and career options to assist them in identifying which of Purdue'sengineering disciplinesis the right fit. Our professional academic advisors, faculty and student advisors are dedicated to assisting beginning engineers with the first-year experience.

Purdue Agriculture Experience: David Wilson

大卫威尔逊肖像

随着他父亲作为长期普渡职业工作人员工作,成为锅炉制造商是大卫威尔逊的自然选择。唯一的问题 - 他会选择什么是他的专业?他在学术经验中看起来很难,选择ABE,因为教授和农业学院的服务学习环境的个人关注。

My Purdue Path

选择一个适合的专业
当我从高中毕业时,我对我想做的事情有所了解。我对农业感兴趣,我认为工程将是一个很好的契合。但我并不真正知道这会领导的地方。我学到的一件事是工程技能如何在粮食安全和国际发展中使用。那是我真的开始对国际工作兴奋的时候。农业学院难以确保学生意识到国际机会 - 鼓励他们在国外留学,让他们在全球设计团队中,并帮助他们参加国际项目。

通过实践学习
In ABE, professors are very patient in working with you. When I started, I didn’t really know a lot of hands-on things about vehicles. But the professors let us learn, and we developed the skills. We were able to make mistakes. Professors might have a better idea how to do something, but the program isn't just about the results. The goal is for students to learn. Sometimes the best way to do that is by making mistakes.

作为本科生,我参与了Purdue Utility项目,专注于建立一个实用的多用途车用于撒哈拉以南非洲。我已经通过这个项目的一些最大的影响,并前往非洲喀麦隆。经过设计过程,在团队上工作,然后一起旅行三到五周,你相互了解得很好。你会更好地了解自己,特别是因为你沉浸在新的文化中。Purdue在服务工作中很强,所以教授与您的教育合作。这并不是在课堂上。我们在商店和世界各地都脱颖而出。这就是真正的教育发生的地方。

Opening Doors
起初,我没有看到自己去研究生院。它是我高级的选择。我想在国际上工作,这是我可以进入我想要追求的粮食安全和国际发展工作的一种方式。我想通过使用我的工程技巧来帮助人们设计有用和可持续的东西,无论是三轮车还是谷物播种者。

涉及差异
If you come to Purdue, get involved. There's a lot of opportunities and projects that you can work on. Start early. This participation will make a big difference while you're here at Purdue—and after, too.
