Senior Design Capstone Program

Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE) applies the science of engineering to products and processes of the agricultural industry. Senior ABE students participate in a two-semester applied-design project course completed in conjunction with industry sponsors. The program allows students to apply their education and to experience the dynamics of an industry-based project. Through the Capstone Program, the ABE Department aims to produce excellent graduates that are equipped with the knowledge, experience, and applicable skills to handle modern-day challenges in the industry.
