The Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering (BEE) is diverse with two distinct and highly integrated program areas: Biological Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Although these two program areas share significant commonality in teaching, especially with regard to the core curriculum, there are significant differences in emphasis and course options. These differences result in a flexible program that satisfies the diverse interests of our students. Accordingly, the intellectual breadth of the BEE department is even more strongly reflected by the diversity of the department's research and outreach activities. Biological Engineering integrates engineering practice and quantitative biology, with a focus on food systems, life sciences, human health and the environment. Environmental Engineering is aimed at combining engineering and environmental sciences in a coordinated manner so as to include a balance of basic, developmental and applied investigative efforts. Once concerned primarily with the rural environment, the program now addresses a wide range of environmental issues in both the private and public sectors.
