Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting is the first event of the school year. Members are informed of the different kinds of events that will be planned throughout the year.

Professor Talk

This event gives students the opportunity to learn about bioengineering in the world of academica. Different professors and post-doctorate fellows give presentations on their research in bio-engineering, and some "behind the scenes" of the world of academia. This is useful for students that are planning on pursuing research and graduate studies. A big thank-you goes to this year's speakers; Professor Michael Sefton , Dr. Ehssan Koupaie , Dr. Courtney Toth , and Dr. Alessandra Biz



Summer Research Talk

She will be presenting tips and tricks to landing your dream summer research position.

Bioengineering Competition

The annual BESt Design Competition is a fun way to explore issues in the current bioengineering industry. You will be given a real-life problem that you can solve using your engineering design skills. On January 25th, you will be competing against other teams in groups of four. All disciplines and years are welcome, and there will be prizes for the top teams!
