​​The Biosystems Engineering & Soil Science programs are housed in modern facilities on UT's West Campus. We occupy or share three buildings locally, and have a presence at the West Tennessee Research & Education Center. In addition, we conduct research at a network of Research & Education Centers around the state. Four of these are outdoor facilities within 15 miles of campus that supplement classroom teaching.
