Ph.D. - Agricultural Engineering
The University of Idaho offers three graduate degrees in Biological and Agricultural Engineering. Each of these programs will allow you to develop methods and tools to improve soil and water conditions. You may also gain skills to design and test new ways to produce biodiesel and other forms of alternative energy from feedstock such as locally grown canola oil or manufacturing waste. Through the use of state-of-the-art software programs, GIS and image analysis, your research will lead you to discover and understand systems for irrigation, runoff, erosion control in watersheds, stream restoration, and the protection and enhancement of natural and agricultural lands.
The Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering offers two master's degrees, both requiring a minimum of 30 credits, online through Engineering Outreach. The Master of Science (M.S.) degree requires a thesis; the Master of Engineering (M.Engr.) does not.
