  • Department of Biosystems Engineering

    Department of Biosystems Engineering originates from Department of Agricultural Machinery, which was one of the first-established engineering departments in southern China’s agricultural institutions. Currently the Department is entitled to grant Ph.D. and MSc degrees in various disciplines including Biosystems Engineering, Agricultural Mechanization, Agricultural Bio-environment & Energy Engineering, Agricultural Electrification & Automation as well as Agricultural Water & Soil Engineering.

    Up to date, the Department has made outstanding performance and remarkable achievements in the fields of agricultural biologic production mechanical and electronic engineering, bio-systematic information collection and management, bio-mass processing engineering, electricity supply and consuming technology, water environment and control engineering, bio-resource comprehensive treatment and utilization, etc.. It has also established excellent relations and organizes constant academic exchanges with partner departments of a number of overseas universities.

    Upholding the objective of building a world first-class discipline, the Department devotes to make interdisciplinary attempts with various disciplines, including Engineering Science, Biology, Information Science and Cybernetics, in order to produce academic superiority and play a greater role in training advanced engineering personnel with stronger biological scientific information background.
