Biological systems engineers develop the techniques and processes to work with living systems, including microbes, plants and animals. They provide input to produce and process food, fiber, energy, chemical feedstocks and pharmaceuticals. They also emphasize efficient use of soil and water resources and environmental protection to improve water quality, control air pollution and clean up contaminated soil.
Biological systems engineers apply engineering, physical and biological principles to living systems in a diverse world of opportunities. They design machines and structures; manage natural resources such
as soil, water, crops and forests; analyze and design ways to maintain healthy environments for humans and animals; process food, feed, fiber and waste products; and develop efficient applications of computers and automatic controls for agricultural operations and processes.

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
