Why Study Agricultural Engineering - Natural Resources and Environmental Systems?
Major | Agriculture Engineering | CAFES
As a student in the agricultural engineering - natural resources and environmental systems (NRES) option, you'll learn how to analyze and design systems to manage our water resources, agricultural systems and soil in an environmentally responsible, sustainable manner. You'll learn how to design waterways, storm water management practices, feedlot treatment systems to prevent pollution, irrigation and drainage systems and wetland restorations.
Internships are a key way to put skills learned in the classroom to use while gaining invaluable hands-on experience. The College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES) maintains a strong internship program with students being placed at companies throughout the Midwest. Internship partners include companies and organizations such as Natural Resources Conservation Service, engineering consultants, Department of Natural Resources and Board of Water and Soil Resources.
