Agricultural Engineering is a discipline base on the application of engineering principles for the production and processing food, fiber and materials of biological origin. In the Philippines, Agricultural Engineering concentrates on such area as the irrigation and drainage of agricultural land, erosion control, planning of farm building, agricultural waste management, agricultural processing and development of labor-saving farm equipment and systems. BSAE is a five – year program which integrates the basic engineering principles of the allied engineering courses such as mechanical, civil and electrical with its applications in agriculture. A license is required for the practice of the profession both in public and private entities. These are various opportunities for employment when one is a licensed agricultural engineer. It varies from farm manager, sales engineer, consultant, supervisor of agricultural projects, instructors in higher institutions of learning offering agriculture and agricultural engineering courses.
