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