Events

BMES strives to host events that appeal to bioengineering students and faculty. We plan events with the following three categories in mind:

Academic

  • Course Advising
  • Graduate Programs Info Sessions

    We provide opportunities for BE students thinking about continuing their education in Bioengineering after their undergraduate years by hosting info sessions on various universities, such as Rensselaer Polytechnic University.

Professional

  • Tours of Biomedical Companies

    BMES hosts tours for interested BE students to various biomedical companies to gain exposure into the industry. In 2010, we hosted a tour of the ECRI Institute, a non-profit organization specializing in healthcare research and advice for healthcare professionals regarding patient care, located just outside of Philadelphia.

  • BETA

    At Bioengineering Talks with Alumni, we invite alumni of Penn Bioengineering to have an informal talk with current BE students about life after Penn and answer all of their questions. Look out for the next BETA event!

Service

  • Clark Park Cleanup

    BMES this weekend in celebrated Love Your Park Week by helping clean up Clark Park! We raked leaves, spread mulch, weeded, picked up trash, and prepared the park for the winter. Check it out on Facebook here

Social

  • BMES Movie Night

  • Holiday Cards for Professors

  • Study Break Socials

    BMES hosts a variety of study breaks throughout the year, helping students socialize and get some snacks before big exams with other BE students.

  • BE Break Room

    BE Break Rooms is a regular event where students can come and enjoy free food (Greek Lady, Cosi, Insomnia Cookies, and much more!) while mingling with other BE students as well as BE professors.
