The BAE department offers a Master’s in Biological and Agricultural Engineering for sugar engineering in collaboration with the Audubon Sugar Institute. This degree is targeted at people who have a bachelor’s degree in a related field and wish to gain some specific sugar processing expertise through further study.
The master’s degree is a thesis option only, and the academic requirement is 24 credit hours of course work in a nominally 21-month program. The course requirements include the following courses:
Thesis research (6 credit hours) shall be related to a relevant sugar-processing topic. Students will also be encouraged to take on a research assistantship in the Audubon Sugar Institute for the duration of his course. At ASI the students will be given a maximum exposure to sugar processing at every opportunity.
