Institute of Biological Engineering

The Institute of Biological Engineers (IBE) at Cornell University is a student chapter of the professional society open to any students who are interested in biological, environmental, or biomedical engineering.  The focus of IBE is to encourage students interested in these disciplines to grow both professionally and socially by attending events and networking with peers, professors, and industry professionals.  These professional events include company information sessions, graduate school panels, lectures given by faculty, and many others.  Students are encouraged to network with their peers through a peer mentorship program and social events including happy hours.  The largest event hosted by IBE is the annual BioExpo each spring. This event is a research symposium where student researchers in all aspects of biological engineering display posters, and presentations are made by faculty and industry professionals, along with a company showcase.

 American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers

Trusted worldwide. For more than a century, ASABE has been the professional home of engineers and others worldwide who endeavor to find sustainable solutions for an ever-growing population. A member-driven technical and educational organization, ASABE is its members: a strong, closely woven network of experts who share the vision of Engineering for a Sustainable Tomorrow.

Proud of its heritage, ASABE evolves with the needs of its members, providing all the tools necessary for the growth of the profession and for the professional growth of those who practice it. ASABE members enjoy online interactive forums, conferences, professional development and licensure resources, networking opportunities, mentoring, and immediate online access to more than 170,000 pages of the latest technical information.

You, too, can be a part of the global ASABE family. Stay informed, make connections, work smarter, and never stop growing-that’s the value of ASABE.

American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering

The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) is the authoritative voice and advocate for the value of medical and biological engineering to society. It is an organization of leaders in medical and biological engineering, consisting of academic, industrial, professional society councils and elected fellows.

AIMBE’s mission includes communicating objectively with and responding to US and state government agencies, as well as lawmakers. We hope to contribute to public policy making that benefit the public.

Working towards greater translational research and innovation, promoting inter-society relationships, as well as inspiring the young future leaders of the MBE community are all part of what we do.

We believe that recognizing and honoring those who have made significant contributions to humanity through MBE can help educate the public on how MBE affects all of us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. I know OUB has a program where undergraduate Biology students can take their professors to dinner/lunch to get to know the faculty. Is there something similar in BEE?

A1. IBE (Institute of Biological Engineers) has numerous faculty-student social events each year. And nothing should stop you and your buddies from inviting a faculty member (or grad student, or post-doc, or staff member) for coffee or a meal. We all have to eat, and it’s a real compliment to be asked.
