Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering

Since 1905, the Department of Agricultural Engineering, now the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE), has been a leader in providing engineering solutions to agricultural problems in the United States and the world. The department’s original mission was to mechanize agriculture. That mission has evolved to encompass a global view of the entire food production system–the wise management of natural resources in the production, processing, storage, handling, and use of food fiber and other biological products.

History
In 1905 Agricultural Engineering was recognized as a subdivision of the Department of Agronomy, and in 1907 it was recognized as a unique department. It was renamed the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering in 1990. The department merged with the Department of Industrial Education and Technology in 2004.

Abstract

The ABE department at Iowa State University frequently hosts both international and domestic visitors. The challenge we were given was to design three ABE-specific brand souvenirs to give the visitors. The souvenirs should impress the visitors and be clear, attractive, useful, and memorable. These souvenirs are to be crafted out of metal, wood, or plastic and include the skills of all members involved. External help was used for the artistic aspects of the design via personal contacts in the design department. The project was completed over the course of the 2019-2020 academic year. The main stakeholders helped to determine the final designs for each of the souvenirs. The souvenirs included feedback from the voting.
