Biological and Ecological Engineering is the application of engineering and life-science principles and problem-solving techniques to the optimum use and sustainability of biological resources. The curriculum is engineering-based with strong emphasis on the life sciences. With undergraduate and graduate options, we bring the insights from biology and the methods of engineering together to provide the products and tools of the future.

Contributions from BEE's Dr. Ganti Murthy: "Creating life cycle inventory datasets to support meaningful and constructive strawberry production sustainability metrics" "The e-book was grown from the minds behind the National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative, also known as NSSI. Its 60 digital pages are overflowing with content and links to more than 70 videos, tools and publications created to improve the sustainability of U.S. strawberry production."

Austin Hall lead the CTEMPs team in June for a challenging installation in the South China Sea in a support project for the team of Dr. Kristen Davis (see attached photos).  This effort reflects the hard work of CTEMPs team members Austin Hall, Rebecca Hotchreutener, Chadi Sayde, and John Selker

Ecological Engineering student, Randi Mendes, won best engineering poster at the 2014 The Pacific Northwest Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (PNW LSAMP) Conference at Portland State University.

With funding from the National Science Foundation, John Selker is buying two new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to loft sophisticated measuring instruments of his own design into an atmospheric zone that’s been hard to study until now.
What began as a research problem for John Selker [Professor with BEE] and Nick van de Giesen six years ago has evolved into a bold plan to cover Africa in weather stations
Hong Liu, a professor in the OSU Department of Biological and Ecological Engineering and co-inventor of the core technology, called the technology a potential win-win for solving both waste and energy challenges. "The social and long term impact is providing energy from a renewable source while benefiting human health," Liu said.
