Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES-UMD)
The mission of BMES is to unite and promote the future of the biomedical engineering profession. BMES offers rising biomedical engineers the chance to establish leadership, publish their work, and participate in a wide range of activities that will enhance their careers. Some examples of past events include speakers from local labs, lab tours, industry tours, research competitions, mentor-mentee program gatherings, public outreach, volunteer trips, and social get-togethers.
Alpha Eta Mu Beta
Alpha Eta Mu Beta is the Bioengineering Honor Society. AEMB focuses on the academic and professional development of its members, especially those who wish to pursue further education such as graduate school and medical school. Members who are interested in industry or other fields are still encouraged to apply as AEMB has many current members and alumni who are interested in or currently working in those fields.
The Catalyst is UMD's undergraduate bioengineering and biotechnology research journal. The Catalyst was created by a group of undergraduate students who came together with an idea to increase student interest and involvement in research on campus. The Catalyst's editorial team, along with other BIOE students and faculty members, has recognized that undergraduate research is fundamental to a student’s academic success. This journal is meant to reveal these research experiences to current, prospective transfer, and high school students not yet involved in research, as well as to all who are interested in reading about the research being conducted on campus.
