Discover Engineering that makes a difference:  Discover Engineering that makes a difference Discover Engineering for life Discover Engineering with a higher purpose C S B E S C G A B Discover Bioresource Engineering the engineering of food, environmental, biological, and agricultural systems Slide2:  40% projected increase in world population by 2030 will add 2 billion people to the planet Finding Solutions for Life on a Small Planet Growing world population requires more food, water, energy, goods Limited resources demand we do more with less, without degrading our natural world Slide3:  Bioresource engineers ensure the growing population has the necessities for life Safe and abundant food and water Timber and fiber for shelter and clothing Plentiful and renewable energy resources Clean air Slide4:  Bioresource engineers—what do they do? Develop solutions for responsible, alternative uses of agricultural products, byproducts and wastes and of our natural resources - soil, water, air, and energy Devise practical, efficient solutions for producing, storing, transporting, processing, and packaging agricultural products Solve problems related to systems, processes, and machines that interact with humans, plants, animals, microorganisms, and materials Design, construct, repair, upgrade, and remediate biosystems of all sizes ranging from the microbial scale to the full-sized watershed; they deal with ecosystems and agro-ecosystems of all types. Slide5:  Bioresource engineering allows you to apply your knowledge in math, physical sciences, and biological sciences in a useful and productive way. Why Choose Bioresource Engineering? You can make a lasting mark on the world around you, and help other people in the process. Our unique curriculum offers valuable experience in engineering and prepares graduates for working in multi-disciplinary teams common in today’s workforce.

Who Employs Bioresource Engineers? Slide7:  Food and Bioprocess Engineering Bio-Environmental Engineering Structures & Environment Biological Engineering Natural Resources Biotechnology Fermentation Mechatronics Information Energy Specialty Areas Forest Engineering Ecological Engineering Agricultural Engineering Post-Harvest processing Aquacultural Engineering Safety, Health , Ergonomics Nursery & Greenhouse Engineering Power Systems & Machinery Design Water: Hydrology, Drainage, Irrigation Slide8:  Biological Engineering Applying engineering practice to problems and opportunities presented by living things and the environment This can involve: Environmental protection Bioinstrumentation Bioimaging Plant-based pharmaceuticals and packaging materials Slide9:  Natural Resources Improving conservation by understanding the complex mechanics of soil and water Wetlands protection Water control structures: dams, reservoirs, floodways Drainage Erosion control Pesticide and nutrient runoff Modelling pollutant transport Crop water requirements Water treatment systems Irrigation Slide10:  Food and BioProcess Engineering Using microbiological processes to develop useful products, treat municipal, industrial, and agricultural wastes, and improve food safety Packaging, storage, transportation of perishable products Pasteurization, sterilization, irradiation techniques Food processing techniques & technologies Biomass fuels Nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals Biodegradable packaging materials Slide11:  Information & Electronic Technologies Perhaps the most versatile specialty area, it’s applied to virtually all others Data acquisition and “Bioinformatics”—biorobotics, machine vision, sensors, spectroscopy Electromagnetics Global positioning systems Machine instrumentation and controls Slide12:  Structures & Environment Engineering a healthy environment for living things Animal housing Grain storage Waste storage, recovery, reuse, transport Climate, ventilation, disease control systems Slide13:  Power Systems & Machinery Design Improving efficiency and conservation in agricultural, food, and biological systems Agricultural tractors, combines, implements, and transportation equipment Turf and landscape equipment Equipment for special crops Irrigation equipment Farmstead equipment Food processing equipment Slide14:  Energy Developing renewable energy sources, devising energy conservation strategies to reduce costs and protect the environment Devising new ways of capturing solar energy as bio-energy Meeting the energy needs of the general population by using agricultural products and by-products Biomass, methane, vegetable oils Wind and solar energy Slide15:  Nursery & Greenhouse Engineering A microcosm of large-scale production agriculture, with similar needs Irrigation, mechanization Disease and pest control Temperature, humidity, ventilation control Plant biology: tissue culture, seedling propagation, hydroponics Slide16:  Forestry Applying engineering principals to forestry management and conservation Machine-soil interaction and erosion control Operations analysis and improvement Equipment design Wood product design Access systems design and construction Slide17:  Preparing for a University Career in Bioresource Engineering, You Need: Sciences, including life sciences Writing and Speaking — to communicate clearly and to “sell” your ideas Maths Slide18:  Arkansas State, Auburn, Cal Poly State, California State University, Clemson, Colorado State, Cornell, Dalhousie, Florida A&M, Fort Valley State, Iowa State,, Kansas State,

And, I have the chance to work in an industry that affects everyone in the world!” “Other university departments are so big and impersonal, but my faculty took time to get to know me and help me grow, personally as well as academically. There is a real sense of community in this major.” “My studies prepared me for the job market by exposing me to many different experiences and scenarios that come across in work.” Slide19:  Additional information: http://www.mcgill.ca/agreng/ http://www.agrenv.mcgill.ca/ agreng/recruit/ email: [email protected] tel: Susan Gregus 514.398.7774 Bioresource Engineering at McGill
