Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
BMES
Purpose:
The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) works with the Texas A&M Biomedical Engineering Department to expose students to the array of career opportunities in areas such as industry, research, and medicine that are offered with a degree in biomedical engineering (engineering and science with medical application). Every week, professional speakers from industry and from departments around campus come to share their knowledge of what career development beyond college looks like and what students can do now to set themselves up for success in their future. Mentorship programs within BMES are also available for students who want to learn more about what biomedical engineering can do and want to start making connections among their peers and future colleagues. If you want to make the world a better place through innovation of healthcare, BMES is the place to be.
