The University of Colorado Biomedical Engineering Society 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 technical projects, professional networking, and social events.


When We Meet

For the fall 2014 semester: Wednesdays, 5 - 6:30 PM, ECCR 139. Beginning 9/3/14



Fall Networking Event

Join us in a meet and greet between CU students and biomedical companies!

This is a great opportunity for companies in the biomedical industry to promote their company and get a head start in recruitment for internships and employment. On the other hand, it is a chance for students to establish professional networking skills and obtain more insight into the inner workings of the biomedical industry.
