Welcome to the Institute of Biological Engineering
The Institute of Biological Engineering (IBE) was established to encourage inquiry and interest in biological engineering.
The 21st century presents global challenges in the environment, resources, energy, health, and sustainability. The Institute of Biological Engineering supports the community of scientists and engineers that are addressing these problems through biological systems analysis and design. We do this through enhancing and promoting biological engineering in the broadest manner through research, education, and professional development.
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.

Tribute to Dr. Carl W. Hall
Dr. Hall received B.S. in Agricultural Engineering in 1948 from the Ohio State University, M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Delaware (1950) and Ph.D. from Michigan State University. Upon graduation in 1952 he joined the faculty of agricultural engineering in Michigan State University and served as the department head from 1964 to 1970. During his tenure at MSU he guided over 50 graduate students and developed the most prominent program in biological aspects in food engineering. After MSU, he served as the Dean of the College of Engineering at Washington State University from 1970 to 1982.
