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.
Society for Biomaterials
The Society for Biomaterials (SFB) is a multidisciplinary society of academic, healthcare, governmental and business professionals dedicated to promoting advancements in all aspects of biomaterial science, education and professional standards to enhance human health and quality of life. Together with the Johns Hopkins University chapter, the University of Maryland chapter of SFB hosts the Mid-Atlantic Biomaterials Day event.
Engineering World Health
The University of Maryland chapter of Engineering World Health chapter seeks to inspire and mobilize the biomedical engineering community to improve the quality of healthcare in vulnerable communities. EWH brings together motivated students to design innovative biomedical devices in order to improve healthcare in the developing world. More specifically, EWH seeks to provide students the opportunity to repair, build, and learn about medical devices. EWH is an interdisciplinary group open to students of all majors!
