Pre-Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural Engineering (AGEN) involves the analysis and design of field machinery systems and machine components; testing to evaluate machine or mechanical system functional performance; and analysis and design of soil and water management-related infrastructure. Students choosing the pre-agricultural engineering program on the Omaha campus should be aware that there are four courses in the first two years (AGEN 100, 112, 212 and 225; nine total credit hours) for which there are no equivalents on the Omaha campus. However, substitutions for AGEN 100 may be available on a case by case basis.
