Course Synopsis:

This course covers topics on design aspects within related biosystems engineering thematic areas including (but not limited to) automation and emerging technologies, machine systems, postharvest technology, structures and environment, soil and water, information technology, and sustainable agriculture and cutting across several important food and industrial crops. The scope of the class is to design component, equipment, process, plant and systems to meet desired project needs within realistic constraint and to comprehend diverse and fast changing technology and open-end design problems in biosystems engineering and technology fields.  The use of modern engineering design practices, tools and product/solution development process, trouble-shooting methodology, learn and utilize a realistic simulation of the real-world design process, engineering analysis and synthesis through their projects. Knowledge integration from other Biosystems Engineering courses is required to identify, solve, and design solution for complex engineering problems.

Course Outcomes:

Ability to conduct engineering analysis and adeptly apply principles and tools of mathematics and science to solve multi-facetted design project to produce credible conclusions.
Ability to formulate and produce solutions that properly address critical issues and assumptions that are conceptually and contextually valid and meet client expectation.
Ability to design component, equipment, process, plant and systems in biosystems engineering using engineering tools and design softwares for optimum performance.
Ability to display understanding of biosystems engineering project and integrate the design for manufacturability, utility and sustainability.
Ability to write project report that conforms to engineering professional standard and to perform verbal presentation on the project.
