Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Biomedical Engineering Society's website!
Engineering Expo and Officer Elections
Itís Engineering Expo this week! BMES has a tradition of winning Expo awards and we donít plan to make this year an exception. We will have our own room with multiple exhibits, such as a surgical robot, finger casting, and an electrospinning demo, in order to showcase what Biomedical Engineering is all about. That being said, Expo is a huge event (8000+ kids are signed up to attend over the three day period!) and we really need all the help we can get to staff our exhibit. If you have some free time and would like to help us out please sign up for a volunteer shift using this Doodle poll here.
Also, if you are interested in becoming a BMES officer for the 2013-2014 school year, nominations will begin this Wednesday at our biweekly General Meeting, and can continue up to the moment of the election. If you would like to know more information about a position, feel free to contact the officer currently holding it; you can find his or her contact information on our Officers page. In accordance with our constitution, elections will be held at our final general meeting of the semester on May 1st. You can run for as many positions as you would like, and the elections will occur in the following order:
Industry Research Co-Chair
Department Relations Chair
Polygon Representative/Campus Involvement Chair (Depending on Changes to the Constitution)
Industry Relations Chair
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
See you Wednesday,
Brewers game, get excited!
Week of April 7th
Thanks to everyone that came to tie dye shirts with us last Friday, we had a great time! If you missed out donít worry, thereís plenty of tie dyed shirts left. Stop by our office during office hours or come to one of our meetings to get yours. With fall semester sign ups coming up soon weíll be hosting a Class Advising Workshop this Monday where you can get all of your course questions answered. Also, donít forget to join us this Friday for Relay For Life. The plan this year is to stay up until 6 AM, but Iím sure that wonít be an issue for those of you used to pulling all-nighters.
Have a great week,
P.S. Enjoy these photos from last week in case you missed out.
