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).

Want to know which universities offer master’s programmes for biological and agricultural engineers? Take a look below – and, if you’ve already found your dream school, why not take a moment to see some of the recruiters that are active on US university campuses.
