CSBE/SCGAB provides key platforms for the compilation of knowledge and the dissemination of technology, including the publication of a refereed journal and of standards of practice, and conducting annual conferences, workshops for Continued Professional Development, and technical meetings.


 Our missions are:

To advance the application of engineering principles and practices tobiological systems for the production of food, bioproducts and energy.

To develop and adopt the standards of practice in bio-engineering through various educational disciplines that include agricultural engineering, forest engineering, food engineering, biological engineering, bioresource engineering, biochemical engineering and biosystems engineering.

To ensure the safety and the health of practicing bio engineers through the development of guidelines for maintaining a clean and sustainable environment.

To develop means of professional development through organizing meetings and forums and refereed journal publications for dissemination of information on bioengineering.

Finding Solutions for life on a small planet ...

  • 40% projected increase in worldpopulation by 2030 will add 2 billion people to the planet
  • Growing world population requires more food, water, energy, goods
  • Limited resources demand we do more with less, without degrading our natural world

Bioengineers ensure agrowing population has the necessities for life

  • safe and abundant food and water
  • timber and fiber for shelter and clothing
  • plentiful and renewable energy resources
  • clean air
