Busy Busy Busy

I know many of you have another round of midterms coming up in the next week or so but try and make some time for some fun BMES events. This week we have our classic BMESkating on Thursday night. Sign up under the calendar tab on the website. We also have Food pantry which I would like to get 7 people this week so we can represent BMES well. Meet n Greet will be tomorrow from 4 to 5 pm and is a great way to play some games, hangout or study with some free pizza as well. Hope to see you this week at all these awesome events.

GE Healthcare at the General Meeting!

Hello Everybody,

We have a big meeting this Wednesday where GE will be coming in and talking about how to build a standout resume and about the internships and co-ops available from GE Healthcare. We will be electing our Freshman Rep this week as well so all freshmen interested please prepare about a 30 second pitch about why the organization should elect you for this position! I welcome anyone interested to run. We are also going to the Food pantry this Friday! I encourage many people to sign up at the meeting this Wednesday!

Lasik Surgery

The biomedical technology surrounding LASIK eye surgery was introduced in 1973 enabling eye doctors to reshape corneal tissue with thermal damage in the form of the excimer laser. By 1998 the excimer laser was widely used for the LASIK surgery ablations a LASIK Houston specialists at Mann Eye Institute use the excimer laser today with great expertise. Mann Eye Institute has LASIK locations in Houston and Austin Texas.

Residential Solar Power

Biomedical engineers that are looking to expand their engineering horizon should look into the mechanics behind residential solar panels and how they are helping to leave a green footprint on the environment. Through solar power, we can truly clean up the environment and make the world a better place to live for future generations.

Encoder Products for Motion Feedback Control

University of Wisconsin - Madison engineering students are studying motion feedback control systems in an absolute encoder or rotary encoder used in such industries as oil and gas, and aerospace. These unique devices are engineered with top quality materials and provide students with a great learning opportunity. Just one more reason why the University of Wisconsin - Madison is a great choice for students eager to learn!
