The Biomedical Engineering Society Student Chapter at the University of Colorado Boulder was founded in February 2012. It is one of over 100 student chapters nationwide who collaborate with and support the professional Biomedical Engineering Society.
Our mission is to introduce students to the profession of biomedical engineering, expand their knowledge of tools and techniques used in the field, and develop members’ leadership and professional qualities through a variety of professional networking, social events, outreach events, and guest speakers.
The BMES Student Chapter at CU Boulder generally meets every week, and regularly hosts guest speakers. Our guest speakers come from a variety of prestigious backgrounds. This fall semester, we are honored to host Dr. Aaron Clauset, Dr. Robin Dowell, Dr. Leslie Leinwand, Dr. Zhongping Tan, Dr. Robert Garcea and many others. If you are interested in learning more about their backgrounds or research, please see our guest speakers page. If you are interested in speaking, please send us an email! We would love to have you.
We also volunteer twice a semester at a service project in Denver called Project C.U.R.E., where we test and repair old medical equipment, which is then shipped to communities in need. This event is a wonderful way for us to give back, and also an opportunity to get familiar with medical equipment. It's also a lot of fun. Additionally, we facilitate a professional networking event or career fair every semester, in order to give our members a chance to further interact with professionals in the field.
