The Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science offers two undergraduate degree programs – Bachelor of Science in Biosystems Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Soil Sciences. Biosystems engineering is a four-year, ABET-accredited engineering program emphasizing engineering applications to biological systems. Environmental and soil sciences is a strong science-based program for students interested in environmental science, soil science, or engineering technology. Engineering technology concentrations include agricultural systems technology, construction technology, land surveying, and off-road vehicle technology. Students in the land surveying concentration are eligible to sit for the Tennessee Professional Land Surveyor-In-Training exam (see for more details). Minors in either environmental and soil sciences or in biosystems engineering technology are also available. More detailed descriptions of each program are included with the curricular material that follows.

In order to provide students with the best advice concerning course selection, general academic success, and career choices, the programs within the Department of Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science require that all undergraduate students meet with their academic advisors every semester before registering for classes.
