Seek out nationally-accredited engineering programs for the best training. Given a brief internship or prior work-experience, you can expect a great return on your education. If you complete the agricultural science program, for example, there are a variety of concentrations that may appeal to you such as crop and soil science, agribusiness, or hydroponic production methods. Further, due to advances in agricultural science, there is a growing shortage of biotech graduates, and of skilled agricultural engineers in general. Please use the form above to request admissions info for Virginia State University.

Agricultural biotechnology, and crop science in general, includes traditional cross-breeding techniques, trait selection, and genetic engineering in some cases. Biotech crops can make farming more profitable by increasing crop quality and may in some cases increase crop yields. According to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), biotechnology crops as a percentage of total crop plantings in the USA were about 88 percent for corn, 94 percent for cotton, and 93 percent for soybeans. Herbicide-tolerant crops are particularly compatible with commercial agriculture systems that help preserve topsoil from erosion.

USDA researchers seek to solve major agricultural problems and to better understand the basic plant biology relating to agricultural science. This includes introducing new or improved traits in plants, animals, and microorganisms and creating new biotechnology-based products such as more effective diagnostic tests, improved farm animal vaccines, and better antibiotics. The USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) conducts research on the economic aspects of the use of genetically engineered plants, including the rate of adoption of biotechnology by farmers.

Civil Engineering Programs

Civil engineers design and oversee construction projects and infrastructure systems in both the public and private sectors. Civil engineering programs typically take three to five years, and courses include physics, mathematics, project management, design and specific topics in civil engineering. Materials science is closely related to civil engineering. It studies the fundamental characteristics of materials, and deals with mixtures such as asphalt concrete, strong metals like aluminum and steel, and novel polymers including carbon fiber. Civil engineering technicians assist civil engineers in the development of industrial and municipal infrastructure projects. The annual wage of civil engineers with a bachelors was roughly $82,220 in 2015, while civil engineering technicians with an associates degree ranged closer to $50,000 per year.

The subdiscipline of structural engineering governs construction of buildings, bridges, tunnels, and off-shore structures. This involves identifying the loads which act upon a structure, and the forces and stresses which arise within that structure due to external stresses. How can the structure successfully support and resist those loads? The structural engineer takes into account both material considerations such as strength, stiffness, and stability of the structure, as well as other design considerations including cost, safety and sustainability. Due to the nature of some loading conditions, wind engineering and earthquake engineering have developed as specialties within structural engineering.

Engineering Job Listings

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.
