Engineering: Biological and Agricultural Focus

Agri and Bio

The US government predicts a four percent job growth rate for agricultural engineers in the United States; those with higher qualifications are more likely to secure employment in any of the exciting careers on offer – from agriculture manufacturing equipment to food production and everything in between.

According to Recruiter.com, salaries for agricultural engineers are best in Texas, where the average income is around $106,670 annually. Keep in mind that’s the average for all levels of education (though your master’s is truly your foot in the door in this case).
