Their unique education trains agricultural engineering professionals to understand the interrelationships between technology and living systems, preparing them for diverse career opportunities in ecosystem protection, food safety, bioenergy and human health.
Top employers for agricultural engineers include:
The federal government
Colleges and universities
Several factors have contributed to the rising need for agricultural engineers:
An expanding population—agricultural engineers are at the forefront of researching ways to increase crop yields necessary to feed more and more people.
Renewable energy—the high demand to produce crops for use as renewable energy sources inherently involves agricultural engineering expertise and technical knowledge.
An AE degree is a valuable resource when it comes to starting your career. Agricultural engineers design and develop new processes, systems, and products. The job opportunities are plentiful and diverse.
Currently, the demand for AE’s is at an all time high. Leading agricultural firms, government services, and consulting agencies seek after graduates in AE. An AE degree will open doors around the world in large corporations and small businesses, including careers in water quality, food processing, environmental systems, structural design, erosion control, materials handling, agricultural power and equipment design and more.
Demand for agricultural engineers is supposed to multiply almost as quickly as the demand for all other occupation in the period from 2002-2012. The global trend toward standardization of all agricultural products and equipment will lead to greater demand for agricultural engineers. The increasing demand for agro-products, the efforts toward attaining greater efficiency in the agricultural industry and the emphasis of conservation of scare resources would result in higher job opportunities in this sector. Also, additional jobs will be created by agricultural engineers who leave the profession due to retirement and transfers.
The future of agriculture depends on the next generation of problem solvers. Creative and skilled individuals, like you, can use their knowledge of agriculture and life sciences, along with the problem-solving skills of engineering, to create new systems and solutions for the 21st Century. Agriculture is changing faster than any time in history. That’s why, if you are interested in helping direct the future of agriculture, a degree in agricultural engineering is what you need.

Agricultural engineering is also known as biological engineering, and it covers subjects from aquaculture (raising food sources that thrive in water), to land farming and forestry. These engineers also develop biofuels, plan animal environments, and find better food processing methods. Often they work in offices, but they are also outdoors and traveling to worksites where they oversee equipment function in agricultural settings, and assure that government regulations are met
Job opportunities and careers for biological engineers involved in agriculture, bioprocesses and the environment are frequently a combination of indoor and outdoor work. Engineering jobs may require product design and development, plant engineering and management, engineering consulting, and design of systems working with biological, natural resources and the environment. Jobs can be found in the private sector, research, teaching and government sectors.
