University rank #101 (ARWU) , TX,
Graduate students in the top-ranked Texas A&M University Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering enjoy small class size and frequent one-to-one contact with professors, even though our department is among the largest of its kind. 

About

The Master of Agriculture is a non-engineering degree program, primarily for students with a baccalaureate in Agricultural Systems Management, Mechanized Agriculture or a similar degree. All of the other advanced degrees are engineering degrees. An undergraduate engineering degree or its equivalent is a prerequisite for an advanced engineering degree.

If you don’t have an undergraduate engineering degree, but you have to have a strong academic background in mathematics or science, you may still be admitted to a graduate program in engineering. The prerequisite course work required for the successful completion of the Engineering-in-Training exam, identifies by your advisor and approved by the department head, will be taken at the same time as the graduate courses. Otherwise, a second baccalaureate in agricultural engineering is recommended
