Study the Science of Technology and Innovation

Do you want to design systems and life-saving technologies to manage resources and prevent disease? Are you interested in developing plants and crops that can survive in harsh environments, or in enhancing the quality and safety of the food we eat? If so, one of our technology majors may be right for you.

Biosystems Analytics & Technology

Two female University of Arizona students working at a computer.

Bridge the gap between data science and technology by combining biological, physical, and data sciences with technology. You'll implement new ideas, approaches, and technologies to address global challenges related to our food, water, and energy resources.

Biosystems Engineering

A group of University of Arizona students demonstrates drone technology they created for use in agriculture.

Solve resource challenges by using your interest in engineering, science, and technology to overcome drought, disease, famine, and flooding. You may choose to specialize in water resource engineering, biological engineering, or pre-health to prepare for medical school.

Food Safety

A professor and student at the University of Arizona work together to conduct food safety tests on a melon.

Ensure that a high quality and reliable food supply is available to nourish the world's population. You'll learn how to safely produce, package, and distribute food products ranging from produce and poultry to chocolates and baby food.


A microbiology student wearing gloves and safety googles examines the contents of a test tube.

Find new ways to prevent and treat disease and turn these discoveries into life-saving innovations. You may choose to specialize in food safety and consumer health, plant pathology and microbiology, environmental microbiology, microbial genomics and biotechnology, or medical microbiology.

Plant Sciences

A male University of Arizona student evaluates a maize plant in a greenhouse.

Advance discoveries that enable the world's population to grow more with fewer resources. You'll gain a comprehensive understanding of biology, chemistry, physics, and math that you can apply to cutting-edge plant science research including biotechnology and plant breeding.
