Welcome to Alpha Epsilon Kentucky Omega Chapter at BAE!
Alpha Epsilon is an honor society for outstanding agricultural, biological and food engineers. The objectives of the honor society are to promote the high ideals of the engineering profession, to give recognition to those agricultural, biological and food engineers who manifest worthy qualities of character, scholarship and professional attainment, and to encourage and support such improvements in the agricultural, biological and food engineering profession that make it an instrument of greater service to mankind. Memberships in Alpha Epsilon consist of three classes: honorary, active and alumni. Honorary members are selected on the basis of successful achievement in biological and agricultural engineering. Active members are chosen only from students registered in the upper portion of their engineering class, and who exhibit outstanding qualities of character, leadership, and personality. Graduate members may be chosen from outstanding graduate students in agricultural, biological and food engineering.
Joining Alpha Epsilon opens opportunities for participating in local and national activities, participation in local governance, and self-determination, organization and attendance of local activities. Examples of such activities include networking with outstanding Alpha Epsilon members and alumni, helping write the departmental newsletter, participating in peer-mentoring activities, and volunteering for service activities such as, Engineering Day (E-Day), finals week snacks, UK Circle of Love, and the International Book Project (IBP) book drive.
