IBE was established to encourage inquiry and interest in the field of biological
engineering in the broadest and most liberal manner possible, as well as promote
the educational and professional development of its members. Moreover, IBE
strives to enhance the opportunities, experiences and futures of its members
through its several ambitious initiatives.
The emerging discipline of biological engineering lies at the interfaces of
biological sciences, engineering sciences, mathematics and computational
sciences. It applies biological systems to enhance of the quality and diversity
of life. With this in mind, IBE reaches out to not only Biological and
Environmental Engineers (BEEs) but to all engineering and biological
disciplines - our membership is not exclusively BEE.
- Scholarship in education, research and service.
- Professional standards for engineering practices.
- Professional and technical development of biological engineering.
- Interactions among academia, industry and government.
- Public understanding and responsible uses of biological engineering products.
Through publications, meetings, distribution of information and services, IBE encourages:
IBE recently won the award of "Most Improved Student Organization" from the Engineering Alumni Association.
- Cooperation among engineers, scientists, technologists and allied professionals.
- Timely availability of new knowledge and technology.
- Collaboration in education, research and economic activities worldwide active promotion and growth of its members.
