Biological Engineering

The department offers programs leading to Post Graduate Diploma (P.G.D.), Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D). The department has well equipped research and teaching laboratories, and allows either experimental or theoretical research projects. Students may be involved in a specialized research-oriented activity, collaboration with industry, or research centres in Canada.

Our graduate programs provide advanced studies and research in major fields.

The areas of research in which a student may choose to study include:

  • agriculture machinery design
  • tillage mechanics
  • sensors and instrumentation for agriculture and biological systems
  • agricultural building environments
  • soil and water management
  • cold-regions hydrology
  • postharvest and food engineering
  • value-added bioprocessing

FUNDING AND SCHOLARSHIPS

In their applications, students should identify their financial status and state if attendance is contingent on receiving financial aid. The department employs graduate students as marking assistants and a limited number of scholarships, research fellowships and teaching assistantships are available. There is a keen competition for this financial support. Applications for Departmental Scholarships, Research Fellowships and Teaching Assistantships may only be submitted after a student has been admitted.
