  • Objectives
    The objectives of the B.S.A.E. program are to provide graduates with:
    * Apply their education and experience to provide appropriate solutions to technical and societal problems considering systems as a whole, and adding value to the research, development, and design processes encountered in a variety of work environments.
    * Integrate their technical knowledge with skills in communication, leadership and teamwork..
    * Understand social, political and global forces that impact engineering decisions.
    * Possess a strong sense of professionalism and use high ethical standards to address societal and environmental impacts of engineering decisions.
    * Be flexible in the approach to their career development and appreciate the need for continued professional development through life-long learning.
  • Practical experience
    The fundamental philosophy of Engineering at UGA is to expose students to topics from several engineering disciplines before they select their upper division course work. This design gives the students an appreciation of the many career paths taken by professional engineers and produces graduates who are qualified to take advantage of employment opportunities related to civil, mechanical, electrical, biomedical, environmental, biochemical, agricultural and process engineering. By focusing on the fundamentals of engineering as well as the natural sciences and humanities, the UGA graduate is well prepared for the engineering profession, a global job market and a wide range of careers.
  • Course description
    The basic engineering curriculum is comprised of:
    • A general education component that provides an understanding and appreciation of the basic sciences, social sciences, humanities and the arts;
    • A mathematics component that provides quantitative skills needed to measure, estimate, model and simulate;
    • An engineering science component that provides skills needed to integrate scientific knowledge with engineering applications; and
    • An engineering design component that provides knowledge of the systematic process for creating new devices, systems, and structures for human use.
    The basic engineering curriculum concludes with a major senior project that integrates the breadth of the curriculum and requires the student to design a useful product under the constraints typical of private practice.

    The overall goals of the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering program are to provide a fundamental understanding of the natural, mathematical and engineering sciences and then to apply this understanding to design devices and processes in any general area. Graduates from this program are qualified to take advantage of employment opportunities related to civil, mechanical, electrical, agricultural and process engineering. Students enrolled in this program may choose from five engineering areas of emphasis: mechanical systems, electrical/electronic systems, structural systems, natural resource management and process operations.
