PhD Biosystems Analytics and Tech
The Biosystems Analytics and Tech program from University of Arizona focuses on biological systems and water-related issues such as irrigation and water quality, and biosystems applications, including computer modeling, sensors and controls, and systems design and evaluation.
|Starting in:||August, January|
|Tuition Fee:||$10,063 per semester|
|Location:||Tucson, United States|
The Biosystems Engineering Department is developing innovative systems to sustainably feed an increasing population through cutting-edge technology, sustainable practices, and the drive to make a difference in the world.
We build sustainable solutions that create resilience among society, the environment, and the economy.
The University is currently working on many projects, including the following:
- Optimizing growth conditions in controlled environment agriculture
- Finding alternative fuel and feed sources
- Irrigating crops sustainably
- Analyzing big data sets generated from using sensors and controls and looking at metagenomics
The flexibility of our graduate programs allows international and domestic students, in consultation with their advisors, to develop programs specifically suited to their needs. The University of Arizona is a diverse institution and therefore provides courses in many different areas to support specific and general applications. Interdisciplinary desires of students are met by taking classes across the broad spectrum available in the College of Engineering and the College of Agriculture and other divisions on campus.
- Metagenomics: From Genes to Ecosystems
- Fabrication Techniques for Micro- and Nanodevices
- Applied Biostatistics
- Statistical Bioinformatics and Genomic Analysis
- Sensors and Controls
- Applied Instrumentation for CEAC
- Physiology of Plant Production under Controlled Environment
- Applied Instrumentation for Controlled Environment Agriculture
“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?”
