Welcome to the Department of Agricultural & Biological Engineering at Purdue University.  Our mission is to prepare students, citizens, and industry for the future through innovative education and extension/outreach programs and the discovery of knowledge. 

Our cross-disciplinary strengths include academic and research programs in agriculture, biology, and engineering, as well as dual degree programs.  Our engineering degrees are granted by the College of Engineering and our agricultural systems management degree is granted by the College of Agriculture.  The job market remains strong for our graduates who have excellent career opportunities, and demand for our graduates is very high.

Our students excel in the classroom and outside the classroom.  Our 2013 ABE Outstanding Students are featured on our web page as well as our 2013 ABE Outstanding Alumni; be sure to read all about them.
