Introduction to Biosystems Engineering II
Introduction to Biosystems Engineering II is a projected successor volume to Introduction to Biosystems Engineering, a customizable open textbook published in 2021 by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) and Virginia Tech Publishing. As the editors of that volume explained in the preface,
“Our ambition is for this textbook to continually evolve, with the addition of new online chapters every year and periodic publication of hard copy volumes. Each new chapter will follow the standard structure described above and focus on a specific topic. We believe that in time the textbook will provide a foundational resource used all over the world by students learning about Biosystems Engineering for the first time.”
Beginning in 2022, new chapters will be added to this site. Eventually, these chapters will be compiled into a volume and made available in print. The online version will continue to be freely downloadable as a complete work and as individual, stand-alone chapters.
To see and access Introduction to Biosystems Engineering (2021) go to: https://doi.org/10.21061/IntroBiosystemsEngineering.
In addition, a parallel resource is in development—The Biosystems Engineering Digital Library (BEDL)—which will provide more teaching and learning materials for instructors to use in the classroom. For more information about all of these resources, see https://asabe.org/BE.
This project is a joint venture of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) and Virginia Tech Publishing. ASABE and Virginia Tech Publishing has made Introduction to Biosystems Engineering II openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters!
