The Biological and Agricultural Engineering degree program from Louisiana State University is offered in both thesis and non-thesis options. The thesis option requires 24 hours of coursework beyond the bachelor’s degree and a publishable thesis. 


About the programme

A thesis is also required of all students on a graduate research/teaching assistantship. The non-thesis option requires 36 hours beyond the bachelor’s degree and a project. Eighteen to 24 months is the usual time required for full-time students to complete the Biological and Agricultural Engineering program from Louisiana State University.

A graduate student must assume full responsibility for knowledge of the Graduate School and BAE’s rules and regulations concerning his or her degree program. It is not expected that students require the same degree guidance commonly given to undergraduates.

The MSBAE requires a baccalaureate degree from an engineering program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology or the equivalent of the required engineering courses. Students pursuing the MSBAE without an engineering background may have to take additional courses to support their program of study. At least half of the graduate coursework must be taken in the College of Engineering.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Engineering Entrepreneurship
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Food and Bioprocess Engineering
  • Biological Reactor Systems Design
