The department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering is currently accepting inter university and inter-faculty transfers to our two programmes BSc. Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering and BSc. Energy and Environmental Technology for the September 2020 intake. BSc. Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering is a FIVE year engineering course that aims at producing engineers for the agricultural and biological sector but with a better focus (i.e. more specialized) in bio-production systems, agricultural mechanization, agricultural processing, agricultural structures engineering and soil, water and environment engineering. More details on the admission requirements and course content can be found here. BSc. Energy and… Continue reading →
Researchers in ABED are working on various innovations that will make it easier for farmers and urban dwellers to grow and handle their produce. These are simple DIY projects that farmers can construct on small spaces and ensure sustainable food production and reduction of post-harvest losses. https://www.farmers.co.ke/article/2001330887/innovations-that-will-change-the-way-we-grow-food

Students Challenged to Solve Real Problems Agricultural and Biosystems Engineers endeavour develop solutions to the challenges facing the sector. One of the biggest challenges is ensuring food security for a growing population in a world faced by a changing climate. The first year students in Agricultural an Biosystems Engineering students had their first attempt to understand this challenge more during their academic visit to the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization, Katumani, Machakos. During the academic trip, students were exposed to technologies being used to overcome challenges related to climate change e.g. smart farming technologies…. Continue reading →
