Welcome to Penn BMES!

The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) at University of Pennsylvania is the undergraduate professional society for the bioengineering department dedicated to exposing students to bioengineering outside of academia. We are the liaison between the faculty and the students; we convey problems and concerns in both directions. BMES also sponsors social events for the students to become acquainted with one another outside of the classroom.
