Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural engineering, also referred to as agricultural and biosystems engineering, combines the various engineering disciplines of mechanical, civil, electrical, food science, environmental, software, and chemical engineering to increase the productivity of farms and agribusiness enterprises and to ensure the sustainability of natural and renewable resources.

It is a field of study and application of engineering science and designs principles for agricultural purposes. A person who is an agricultural engineer has experience in the field. In most cases, agricultural engineers work with an agriculturist who is more knowledgeable in farming and agricultural science to create engineering ideas and plans for an agricultural project.
