BRAE Lab Support
BioResource & Agricultural Engineering at Cal Poly is devoted to the study, teaching, and practice of engineering and systems management support for agriculture. From day one, 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.
Hands-on experience is the key to success in BRAE. Students plan projects from the ground up and engineer tangible products from start to finish, ensuring that Cal Poly students are outstanding employees in their fields.
We need your help. Keeping Learn by Doing strong and vibrant requires enthusiastic students, pioneering faculty and innovative facilities. High quality intensive instruction requires a focus on the student and small class size. The department’s enrollment is growing and in order to preserve hands-on learning, we need to hire more faculty to provide more laboratory sections.
