Department of Biosystems Engineering is one of the six departments in the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment. It hosts BSc in Biosystems Engineering Programme and plans to launch a MSc in Biosystems Engineering soon. The department is well-placed to contribute to solutions of contemporary development challenges including food insecurity, climate change, access to safe and clean water and energy.
Biosystems Engineering is a science-based discipline that integrates engineering principles with applied biological sciences to ensure adequate supply of food and fibre, clean drinking water, renewable energy, and a safe and healthy environment. Biosystems Engineers study engineering courses as well as biological sciences that are of relevance to engineers. The biological courses are relevant in the design of various engineering systems for food production and agro-processing, water treatment, renewable energy and environmental management.
Master of Science in Biosystems Engineering
This programme has been developed and is awaiting accreditation. The programme aims to provide high quality specialised engineering professionals to contribute to the sustainable development of the food, water resources, and renewable energy sectors. Students enrolled to the programme will major in one of the three specialisations, that is; (1) food and agro process engineering, (2) hydrology and water resources engineering, and (3) renewable energy systems. Each of the option aims to address pertinent development challenges in Uganda and beyond.
The Department of Biosystems Engineering has 14 highly qualified and committed staff who are devoted to providing high quality education with hands-on experience. The staff and are committed to mentoring students to succeed in their career.
