What global impact can a graduate degree in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University make on mankind? The worlds population is projected to exceed 9 billion people by 2050. Future generations face unique biological and ecological challenges. The BAE department is actively engaged in research to address challenges faced by the next generation. Examples include food availability, preservation of natural resources, water quality and quantity issues, climate change and others.
