Bioresource Engineering is an interdisciplinary program that integrates engineering, design, and the biological sciences. It is a unique profession that applies engineering principles to the enhancement and sustainability of the world’s natural resources. Bioresource engineers seek solutions to problems that involve plants, animals, and the environment. Bioresource Engineering includes the design, construction, operation, maintenance, remediation, and upgrading of systems that contain biological components. This also includes the design of many of the technological constructions that are part of such systems. Thus, Bioresource Engineering includes quite a few sub-disciplines, which are linked because of their biological orientation.
