Biosystems engineers use engineering, math, and biology to design systems to manage soil and water resources and to design and develop biological and biomedical products. Students in the Biosystems Engineering at University of Arizona work on projects involving wise use of energy, materials, biochemicals, and recyclable wastes.

They combine technical knowledge, computer techniques, and control systems for a deeper understanding of agriculture and biology — knowledge which someday may be used to design life support systems for colonies on other planets.

Courses include:

  • Engineering Analytic Computer Skills
  • Introduction to Computer Aided Design
  • Sensors and Controls

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
