Agricultural and Biological Engineering Within ASABE - Definition

Agricultural and Biological Engineering is the discipline of engineering that applies engineering principles and the fundamental concepts of biology to agricultural and biological systems and tools, ranging in scale from molecular to ecosystem level, for the safe, efficient and environmentally-sensitive production, processing, and management of agricultural, biological, food, and natural resources systems.

Agricultural and Biological Engineers collectively ensure that the world has the necessities of life including safe and plentiful food, clean air and water, renewable fuel and energy, safe working conditions, and a healthy environment by employing knowledge and expertise of sciences, both pure and applied, and engineering principles to design devices, equipment, and materials for the production, processing, and management of agricultural, biological, and natural resources systems.
