BSE - Student Organizations
American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE)
American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) is a student organization providing students who are interested in agriculture and biological engineering the opportunity to interact with other students in the department, network with the outside industry, and attend conferences with the national professional society.
ASABE Fountain Wars Competition Team
Fountain Wars is a hands-on competition in which a team of up to six students design a fountain to complete challenges using the necessary PVC pipes, couplers, fittings, valves, nozzles, and pumps. Awards are based on the combined scores of a written report, oral presentation, video abstract, construction, technical tasks, and aesthetic display.
ASABE Robotic Club
Robotic Club is a student organization that focuses on robotic design. Throughout the year, we conduct robotic design workshops as well as work on robotic projects. Students will be involved in mechanical and electrical design and also embedded system programming. We participate in the annual ASABE student robotic challenge, and build our competition robots during spring and summer.
Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
We are UNL's student chapter for the national BMES, which is a professional society for practicing biomedical engineers. We welcome all students that are interested in biomedical engineering, as it spans many different majors and programs. We focus a lot on exposing students to different areas of biomedical engineering and giving guidance on deciding what to do after graduation.
BSE Graduate Student Association
The Biological Systems Engineering Graduate Student Association promotes the professional development, creates a positive social environment, and supports the needs of the students in Agricultural and Biological Systems Engineering, particularly as these interests relate to their academic and professional advancement.
Mechanized Systems Management Club
To acquaint present and potential members with opportunities in mechanized systems management and agricultural/biological engineering related fields. To acquaint industry and the general public with systems management related to agriculture. To develop potential leadership and create a spirit of fellowship among members. To foster the development of professional attitudes and to encourage recognition of the need for continued professional and intellectual improvement. To promote the interests of students in systems management and technology fields as these interests relate to professional advancement and to the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE).
Soil and Water Resources Club
The UNL Soil and Water Resources Club was organized to bring together students with an interest in soil and water resources and offer opportunities not normally found in the conventional classroom. The goal is to stimulate the interest of graduate and undergraduate students in soil and water resources and promote the art and science of good land and water use.
