Master’s degree requirements


Admission to a Master of Science program in Biological and Agricultural Engineering requires a degree of Bachelor of Science in agricultural engineering or its equivalent and meeting all requirements for admission to the Graduate School. Graduates from other engineering curricula or a strong physical/biological science curriculum may be admitted provisionally with undergraduate deficiencies specified.

An application for admission to a graduate program in Biological and Agricultural Engineering should be made six months prior to the start of the term in which enrollment is desired. Additional information on graduate programs and on application for admission to the Graduate School of Kansas State University may be obtained by writing the department.

A TOEFL score of 550 or higher is required of those students whose native language is not English. The TOEFL score must reflect results of a TOEFL test that was taken within two years prior to the application. Students meeting all requirements for admission except for the TOEFL score may be admitted to the Graduate School on a provisional status. They may enroll upon scoring 550 or higher on a subsequent TOEFL or after successfully completing the English Language Program at Kansas State University.

The minimum requirements for an M.S. degree are 30 semester hours of graduate credit, including a Master’s thesis of 6 semester hours based upon original research or a master’s report of 2 semester hours of research or problem work.
