Study in:Netherlands
Deadline: 1 May 2019


The Biosystems Engineering program at Wageningen University and Research focuses specifically on the interaction between technology and living objects like plants and animals and takes into account the wishes and demands from the society. This way you learn to make innovative technologies which are based on a scientific basis, for an example the production of raw materials  of natural origin that are used for further food processing, decorative product, materials or energy.This is not just only about the technology, but also the environment in which the technology has to function plays an important role. It’s every time a challenge to solve the problems that comes with it.
