Bioengineering Education - CBE Journal Special Issue
We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for a Special Issue of our Journal focusing on the topic of engineering education within our discipline, with a specific focus on the needs of educating engineering students for the sustainable production of food, bioproducts, and bioenergy.
CSBE/SCGAB (Canadian Society for Bioengineering/La Société Canadienne de Génie Agroalimentaire et de Bioingénierie) is the technical Society of choice for all professionals and students with an interest in the application of scientific and engineering principles for the sustainable production of food, bioproducts, and bioenergy.
Let me first take this opportunity to wish you well during the current pandemic. On behalf of CSBE council, I thank you all for your understanding with the changes we had to make to our 2020 AGM, and for not being able to meet in Quebec City with CIGR. We hope that the global health situation will improve by next summer, so that we can convene in person in Quebec City.
Our members are actively involved in developing complex and practical engineering solutions for Bio Resources and Agriculture. We need you as our suppliers and partners to become members and assist in moving our organization forward.
