Our graduate program is one of the premier national programs in biological & agricultural engineering. Over the past few years, our department has had significant growth in nanotechnology, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering concentrations to expand our traditional agricultural and coastal engineering emphasis. The LSU Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering (BAE) is forging the way to the future in these fields.

An increasing number of young and active mid-level professors, winners of major national awards, work to continue to grow significant programs, garner large grants, and author excellent articles and books. Some of the best students in the country join our program; we recently welcomed students with NSF fellowships, Board of Regents fellowships, and Diversity (ETD) fellowships. 

LSU’s BAE program is an excellent choice for graduate students interested in working with some of the finest scientists and engineers in their fields as well as enjoying the unique culture and cuisine Louisiana has to offer. We invite interested students to come build relationships with our faculty, staff, and students who are changing the world for the better.
