(04-02-2020) In 2020 the faculty of Bioscience Engineering at Ghent University celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Our history starts in 1920, when the first academic year at the State Agricultural University was opened. In 1969 we officially became a faculty within Ghent University.

Already for 100 years now we work on the solutions for tomorrow's challenges.


Coupure blondTo celebrate the 100th anniversary of our faculty, we developed a brand new 'faculty beer', named Coupure Blond.

It's a a blonde high fermentation beer based on ancient, local cereals.

Served on all festivities for our 100th anniversary, presented below!

Jubilee book

In this jubilee book we look back on 100 years of education and research on the technology for the living matter and its environment.

We also look into the future: our youngest researchers describe their vision on how their field of study will look like in 2050.

This book will be presented on our anniversary celebration on 2 October 2020.
