It is also worth noting that 93% of colleges offering agricultural engineering are public making it a very accessible field.
The great lakes produces the most agricultural engineering graduates, largely led by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Ohio ranks highest, with particular help from Ohio State University-Main Campus and University of Arizona, which graduated 160 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study agricultural engineering). More students studied agricultural engineering as a percentage of total students at Ohio State University-Main Campus than any other college.
