BAE Takes the Top Spots in New Faces of ASABE
Each year the American Society of Biological and Agricultural Engineers (ASABE) chooses two individuals to act as the New Faces of ASABE. This year, both of the top honorees are from NC State’s Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering.
Streamlining Biofuel Fermentation Processes
Undergraduate student Erin Cooper likes making things more efficient, easier and faster. She’s working with advisor Dr. Mari Chinn to streamline ethanol fermentation using biomass sorghum as a starting material.
Moving on Up
NC State's Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department has moved up to the No. 6 spot on U.S. News and World Report's list of the nation's top undergraduate programs for biological and agricultural engineering.
N.C. Agricultural Research Stations Ramping Up with New Technology
NC State and the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services are working together to enhance research stations across the state by developing, evaluating and showcasing the latest technology for North Carolina farmers.
Non-Traditional: From Art School To Motherhood To Ag Engineering
At age 46, Alison Deviney has gone back to class – and it's very different this time around.
Fueling the Future: Elephant Grass as Potential Biofuel Material (And More)
A common perennial grass may hold uncommon promise for research, agriculture and industry – and it may even fuel the future. A team of NC State scientists are exploring the potential of miscanthus.
Birgand’s Stream Restoration Research Gets Boost from NC State Seed Grant
For his work on wetland and stream restoration, François Birgand, NC State associate professor of biological and agricultural engineering, won an Internationalization Seed Grant from the NC State Office of Global Engagement and the Committee on International Programs.
CALS Students Named FFAR Fellows
The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research today announced 17 inaugural fellows -- including three CALS grad students -- for a Graduate Training Program in Food and Agriculture Science.
Precision Agriculture Taking Flight in Biological and Agricultural Engineering
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), plant sensors and other precision agriculture technologies are being used for everything from assessing crop damage to nutrient application in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering.
The Long Run
CALS alumnus Robert Moore will face mountains and the summer heat to run the equivalent of six marathons in six days. His goal: raising awareness of multiple sclerosis, a disease he’s dealt with since he was a student at NC State 10 years ago.
