Welcome back to Biological Systems Engineering!

For many of you, we were “Agricultural Engineering”.

In performing the work of today with an almost total focus on the tomorrow, it is easy to put yesterday too far behind.
Realizing that a department’s history is often as important as it’s future, we request your help in bridging the gaps in our collective memory.

If you have information, labeled pictures, old faculty/staff/student lists, student projects, etc., we would like to hear about it. Your personal anecdotes would be even more valuable.

Also, we would like to establish an Alumni electronic mail list of all those who have been associated with BSysE or AgEngr.

If you would prefer, you can send any memorabilia to the address below. We will post what we can and then forward it all to the University Archives.

Thank you for remembering us and for helping us to remember you!
