Welcome to BRAE!

The mission of the BioResource and Agricultural Engineering Department is the study, teaching, and practice of engineering and systems management support for agriculture. Our students "Learn by Doing" in laboratory-intensive classes. Through practical design and problem solving experiences, our students receive the skills, the tools and the opportunity to build what they design.



The Difference is Undeniable!

A survey compiled through the Cal Poly Graduate Status Report ranks BRAE and ASM graduates as earning the highest average starting salaries in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences. Click here to view the statistics [pdf].
