a. Rationale for creation, revision, or deletion:

A recent review by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC-
ABET) suggested that one academic program would be better than two similar programs.

The Bioresources Engineering Technology major (BET) has not had enough students. Several courses that are unique to BET would
not be viable in terms of enrollment.

A separate submission is being developed to propose changes to the Engineering Technology major (ETM) which will be

b. Summary of program:


Bioresources Engineering Technology is the application of engineering techniques to energy, soil,
and water conservation; waste management; food processing and storage; building construction;
and equipment design.

Bioresources Engineering Technology (BET) attracts students who like science, math and
computers, and who enjoy practical, hands-on work. The curriculum is designed to meet the
requirements of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, and allows you to focus
your major in one of several areas. If the environment is your thing, you may choose to center your
BET studies around water resources or soil conservation. Students who are mechanically inclined
can focus their studies on design of machinery and processing equipment. Still others choose
technical management or construction planning. Regardless of your area of specialization, the
major will strengthen your individual skills by including courses in computer programming, land
surveying, computer-aided drafting, and report preparation.
